  1. The return of Eros

    The player in possession keeps the shirt, unless injuries or form dictate otherwise imo. Makes me laugh that people are suggesting changing personnel & formation after the results/performances we have had. Something that LJ got battered for last season! Don't get me wrong, I rate Eros & he seems very popular. But it can only be good for the squad to see that you will be given a chance & its up to you to keep hold of your shirt. COYR
  2. Drones in Training, Passing Options

    I think that the use of a drone is a great idea. The quality of the videos can be brilliant & maybe hits home more than some sort of computer animation. I've said for many seasons that City have been very poor off the ball with regards movement. Certain players have been good at it in recent history, your Nobles, Trundles, Tomlins type if you like. But didn't particularly work hard out of possession. Where as this group of players work as hard off the ball as when they have it, for me that is the key. We also have players all over the park that can handle the ball. Epitomised by Bobby Reid, always a player that was able to find space & want the ball. But people are starting to notice how hard he works out of possession. I'm sure in someways the drones have made an impression on the players, it's probably something a youthful group would take to. A great innovative idea imo. COYR
  3. Palace at Home

    They will have bigger worries than the cup on their hands. So definitely winnable. COYR
  4. Palace at Home

    I'm off to do the lottery!COYR
  5. Palace at Home

    Gotta feeling it's going to be Crystal Palace home. With Roy returning to a former club. COYR
  6. Callum O`Dowda

    A real player in the making imo. Has everything to progress up the ladder. The end product etc will get more consistent as he plays more. COYR
  7. United at home for me. Would love to see Jose at the gate. But would also accept Guardiola! COYR
  8. Stewards playing a dangerous game

    Got to say the steward near me & my son has been nothing but understanding & helpful to us. Will also mention that on quite a few occasions I've seen him get dogs abuse/glares for asking people to move who know they shouldn't be sitting where they are trying to sit, just bloody sit where you paid to sit! As for armed police, can't say I saw any, where were they? COYR
  9. Will it happen again?

    That's basically what I meant yeah. I mentioned on another thread that after Derby scored, one of my first thoughts was, let's see how we react. & we didn't disappoint. The same as Wolves & to have that in such a young group can only bowed well for the future. But basically I was talking after a few loses type scenario, which in this league is likely to happen at some point. Not just the players as well, the fans etc. COYR
  10. Will it happen again?

    No, not imo. Firstly & probably most importantly, the players ( mostly young ) have gained a season of experience in the Championship. I think this alone is massive in so many ways. LJ would of also learnt a lot from the torrid phase he went through. He also has what you would call ' his staff ' along side him, think this is & has been massive in our improvements. The squad as a whole is much more balanced & you only have to look at yesterday's bench & think about who is unavailable at the moment to realise the depth is so much stronger than this time last season. Another factor for me, SL sticking with LJ when so many wouldn't of, it sends a clear message to the players that you can't just down tools like in previous seasons. We look more organised & resolute on the pitch. Lots & lots of positives at the moment. But as with most things, it's how we react in adversity that will be just as important. COYR
  11. Jamie Paterson

    Great performance & energy levels from Pato yesterday. Was interesting to see LJ push him further forward when taking Bobby off. Enabling us to keep the press high up the pitch & not losing the willing runner that Bobby offers. One point, thought he needed to improve his delivery, especially during the first half. Was obviously just finding his range! COYR
  12. That was the best I've seen us play for quite some time. I think the word that keeps popping into my head is 'controlled', from start to finish I thought we were in control. When we went 0-1 down, I thought to myself, we will see what we have got now. & what a response! Listening to the team lineups before kickoff, I thought wow, what a squad they have got. But that performance just reiterates to me that we are doing things the correct way. Not just the starting 11, but our subs bench looks so strong. & there are a few players out that would be in with a shout of being in the squad. Great performance from all. COYR
  13. Korey Smith

    Very good player imo. Surprised by some of the criticisms on here ( maybe not! ) this season. Very tidy player who is an important cog in the style we play. COYR
  14. Tickets From The Club Store.

    Have had the same sort of problem myself today. Took Elliott to see an eye specialist in Cardiff today, so thought I would take his season ticket with us & pop into the gate on the way home to have a look around the shop. Only to have a phone call when just outside the gate to say that Elliotts season ticket had fallen out of my pocket & was still in Cardiffs Eye clinic being looked after by a Cardiff fan! Who is going to post it to us. So went into the shop to see if we could arrange a ticket for Saturday just in case it doesn't arrive back in time, only to be given a number to call. So gave them a call, to then be told to go to the ticket office on match day. Just one of those things I guess! COYR
