  1. Shame. His time here has been wasted due to the management.

  2. FFS let it go. Why is it that some want to turn every post in to having a veiled snipe at LJ or MA or both. His time has not been wasted, indeed his stock has risen considerably in the last 2 years which is why he's attracting interest from the likes of Fenerbache and Lazio. LJ has gone and the club is moving on. Why can't some people on here do the same.

  3. Even though we may be parting ways with Benik this summer, ill never forget how much of a lift he gave the fans and how much everyone at the club including the fans pulled together during the tragic loss of Amora. If he is here or not next season i wish him all the best with whatever he does.

  4. £150m spent in one season and just limped over the line to safety on the last day? Jury still out for me, not sure getting that Villa side out of the championship was anywhere near the achievement it was lauded as at the time. Personally I’d rather have Hughton.

  5. As someone who already renewed their season ticket for next season before all of this happened I will not be settling for just a replacement stream. I hope the club offer a few more options for season ticket holders, and not make those who take refunds feel like they're not letting the club down.

  6. As usual, I think the club get some unfair stick for what they provided with Robins TV. I actually think they have done a pretty decent job, bar the commentary. They are improving every week IMO. Nobody knew that a worldwide pandemic was going to hit, so to create a TV show from nowhere is pretty hard work. I think the club have done a fantastic job, and I'll certainly give them the money, especially as this is a time they need us the most. With all due respect to the OP, £5? Are you joking?

  7. No we are not signing him or he is becoming the new manager! Plays his final PL game today, For me one of the best players to have played in the PL makes the game look so easy. Great to actually see him play at AG in the cup semi final. Class act.

  8. Hughton hasn’t joined any teams in that time and maybe there’s a reason for that. Most fans have put all their eggs in the Hughton basket and don’t even know if he wants the job. Clearly if we don’t get him those fans will say the club messed up without even knowing if it’s true. Always find it weird how fans assume the negative side of a guess

  9. Delighted Bournemouth went down, Mickey Mouse club who are backed by dodgy Russian money, play in a L1 ground & who fiddled FFP to get promoted. Delighted Watford did too, their treatment of Pearson was embarrassing & their 3 club ownership model & total blandness is boring. Villa are by far the biggest of the 3, but they have some seriously odd fans, the odious Terry & Grealish & got a point they certainly didn’t deserve against Sheff U. Shame Norwich did so poorly, would have much preferred them to stay up than any of these.

  12. The OP wont be happy until he has a a page full of posts on the same subject. I really don't understand why Steve Lansdown can't see the truth, if only he had realised before investing a 10th of his amassed fortune in this enterprise, that what he really needed was some anonymous person on an obscure forum to tell him how to spend it. Perhaps he believes that if this said person really knew how to spend that kind of money, he might have some understanding on how to build a business that would enable him to have his own money to spend and do it properly.

  19. We seem to be a club that likes to keep things under wraps, we do it with transfer fees, we don’t release details, it’s only agents and the other club involved who release those figures. So none of this surprises me tbh. Its simply the way SL conducts the clubs business. There could be many reasons why no manager has been announced yet, lots of things go on behind the scenes that we are not privy too, it could be that we have someone who wants to get his backroom staff sorted first. Someone who didn’t feel comfortable about being announced while the current coaches were/are still do

  20. The way he “stood up to him” was try and spend the entire transfer budget on a succession of players who would either never have come here or we wouldn’t pay their ridiculous wage demands. When he couldn’t get his way, he deliberately left spaces on the bench that could have been filled by junior players, in what can only be seen as a fit of pique. He was childish and stupid enough to think that one promotion made him invincible. That seems like the actions of an irrational mind, perhaps SL had seen that in him at the beginning and that’s why he was reticent to take him on. He may as w

  26. Until we can't get into the games, it's a great option. I'm not sure how £10 for a private stream, that's not available through any other source, is over priced to watch your teams games, at the moment.

  27. Harrogate just beat Boreham Wood to get to the Conference final v Notts County or Barnet. JS came on as sub at 37, he must surely just love playing! One of my favourite City players, never the most skilful but always gave 110% and a thoroughly nice bloke too by all accounts. Good luck Jon.

  30. I think he will be our new manager yes, Im also not stupid enough to think would happen a day after johnson got sacked and im patient enough to wait for the club to announce their new manager when the club are read There are rules you have to follow in employing someone employment law the new Rooney rule (I think that's in now) The paper work it just doesn't happen over night, The way some are acting is if we just got relegated to the conference or been made bankrupt its ******* stupid

  31. I think there is something wrong with the club's recruitment policy. It seems clear to me that SL and the board would be just happy with a Ryan Lowe/Lee Johnson type head coach, that's more control for them, keeping the structure the same, and obviously more cost effective. I am sure if Lee Johnson was approached by a Premier League club earlier on this season then the board would've happily appointed Dean Holden or Jamie McAllister up as his successor. I think the quality of the squad is at the stage where it needs a firmer control over it and a clearer understanding and discipline, sadl

  32. The reason for the delay is blindingly obvious. The club is waiting for CH to change his surname to Johnson and the registry office doesn't open till 9 on Monday.

  36. If we can get a good fee for him this summer then he’ll definitely be sold. It’s just whether the post-covid finances will mean any club offers us what we value him at. It’s our model. Buy young, sell at profit. I think we signed him for £1.5m. Sell 3 years on for 2 or 3 times, making good profit to compete and stay in FFP. Whilst he’s a good player in specific situations, his all round game is quite weak. If we can triple our money (ie £4.5m) we’ll be doing very well.

  39. I was watching MOTD and seeing Dean Smith managing in the Prem at Villa, it made me think, if he would have come into City at the time from Walsall everyone would be up in arms for the lack of ambition from the club, cheap option, lack of experience etc etc, yet he went into Brentford and did very well, then went to Villa and got them up and is now in the Prem. Who is to say Lowe or whoever couldn’t do similar? There are no guarantees, football isn’t that easy, if it was then no appointments would fail. Don’t get me wrong I want Hughton, and the fact we’ve been able to attract a m

  40. That’s the gap! Ive posted before that Ashworth and Ashton’s roles are pretty close. The gap is scouting. You’ll know much more about what’s happened there and why....but you need a professional set up with real scouts. You can’t do it all with video and data. Plus those people working the video and data need football nous too if you aren’t gonna have “football eyes” In the process.

  41. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the picture once I had managed to work out how to get the picture from my laptop on to my TV. The bits that weren’t the match footage were definitely a mixed bag though, Lisa Knights is a reasonable enough interviewer & the players (usually Morrell or Moore) did a decent enough job of answering her questions. The Downsy stuff got repetitious very quickly though & the commentators, Jesus Christ, they are so bad. You could play a drinking game about how many times they would suggest Kasey Palmer should come on & would be ham

  43. This is a new virus on the block, although related to others I believe, hopefully we can find an injection soon to help us all combat it and put it on the back burner. I was out in Hong Kong years back when sars was rife and many were wearing masks it seemed to fade into the background hopefully this one will to, although it seems more of a killer and still very much expanding all over the world and is trying to surface again in Europe. As was said we must do "whatever it takes" and not relax our guard until we have help to fight it. Lost my mother (in a care home) to it a few months

  44. I'm a TV producer. In my professional opinion Robins TV isn't bad, Lisa Knights is a good, professional, presenter, but the content looks to me like the cheapest possible thing you could throw together at short notice and call 'match coverage'. What it isn't is a product that you can directly substitute for a seat at the ground to watch the match. At the end of the season ST holders, myself included, accepted it as just that...I'm not sure I'd do so again, and I'm not sure that the club can assume that ST holders will do so without offering something with greater added value. I hope they

  45. Torrent does sound an interesting one, but considering the only mention of a link has been through the forum’s new chief wum, we’ll probably find this is just another of their wind up’s and total bs.

  46. I'd like to know more about Torrent. What I have seen and read so far looks encouraging. He would follow in the footsteps of all of those overseas coaches who have come in to a Championship club and done very well. Jokanovic, Frank, Bielsa. None with a Championship record. Forward thinking clubs who have tried the Hughton type route have been successful and have failed in equal measure, metaphorically you understand because there are always more failures. In order to reach the Premier League and stay there you are increasingly seeing a foreign coach, we all know that, but think abo

And the fact I pointed out he said he went to London Met after Bristol Uni previously under his other alias Londoner then it turns out he went to Oxford during the same period under Lez Compulsive fantasist liar and a not very good one, it's so embarrassing that an assumed grown man is pretending to be something they aren't online.

  48. Absolutely. I’ve said all along that this is a real eye-opening appointment. LJ was here to help build the ‘project’, establish the ‘pathway’, adhere to FFP, competing with bigger budgeted clubs with parachute payments etc, it was a slowly slowly catchy monkey remit for him. The last season has seen a halt in the first team pathway and LJ voicing some concerns over recruitment, so it may be not just the failure to reach the playoffs, those others things maybe play a part too? This is why I find this as fascinating an appointment as there’s ever been. I’m certain they wan

  49. I know it’s a long thread so probably lost a few times along the way, but I’ve mentioned from the start that Hughton simply doesn’t fit the structure. Don’t get me wrong, I’d have him and he’s the absolute sensible choice. But City have been clear that they want a young manager who will fit the ‘head coach’ role, not the ‘manager’ role. This is clearly the dilemma our board are facing. If they go with the sensible and clearly popular choice they’ll need to break their structure. Some noses will be put out of joint and some toes will be stepped on. There are exis

  50. I am confused by the lack of praise for Korey from recent games. I think he's been superb. So reliable on the ball. Faces his opponent and knows he won't lose the ball. Little sharp movements to go one way or the other gets him away from pressing forwards, giving him enough room to make the pass. His passing is decent. Not Walsh quality, but he finds his man in the wide areas and does some nice passes forwards along the ground too. One on one defending he still has it too. Against Stoke near the end during a Stoke counter I was thinking we are in trouble, but when i saw Korey I felt
