  1. Must be a slow day at the office. Absolutely nothing in it as far as I can see. Any chance we could stick with the positive vibe, it’s been so refreshing. COYR
  2. Yeah, just little tweaks, but makes a big difference. Seemed to me from what I saw that Mariappa was possibly a bit more vocal than Kalas as well, directing people, pushing people up. Also think it would of helped Towler having Kalas just inside him & backing him up, he smells danger better than most. COYR
  3. Have never bought into this ‘ he’s lazy nonsense’. I’ve always felt he works hard, but maybe lacks the stamina, sometimes positional sense. On the flip side of that, is he needs games to build that up. I think his persona or body language of being very casual ( I call it calm) on the ball also makes him an easy target for the ‘ lazy ‘ label. COYR
  4. Amazing isn’t it. Defenders in defensive positions, midfielders in midfield positions, move, look to pass forward & work hard. Who’d of thought it! COYR
  5. He would definitely be a good addition, if he’s good at his job! Because his personality would be a breath of fresh air I would imagine. COYR
  6. Yeah, their paths crossed for one season I think. COYR
  7. Yeah, I listen at work every day between appointments. He’s been banging on about that for a while. Really interesting idea. Again, doesn’t suffer fools at all. Love how he tears into agents etc, last time was Pogbas agent, Mino Raiola. Raiola hung up in the end, was getting torn a new one, was a great listen. COYR
  8. He’s a great listen. But I think he ruffles to many feathers to be in a leadership role at the EPL. COYR
  9. I just think it’s a great fit. Pearson is a man that says it how it is, but a lot more articulate/intelligent than his media persona of basically being just a motivator. I think he will also appreciate the way City do business, in particular how straightforward Steve Lansdown is. Especially having been at clubs like Derby & Watford. So you won’t be hearing that phrase from me, although it might happen! COYR
  10. Nothing wrong with Hoddles views on football. It’s a tragedy that he’s not been more involved in football really, but that’s due to his other views I would imagine. Have mentioned him a few times over the years when City were looking for a manager. Think he would be a good DOF for someone. COYR
  11. He’s mentioned them taking 40000 to Wembley fairly recently. Did I miss something? COYR
  12. Yes. Back 4 of Hunt, Vyner/Mariappa , kalas, sessegnon. 2 defensive midfielder of Nagy & Bakinson/Massengo. 3 attacking midfielders of Palmer, Paterson, Lansbury. Would have to be Wells up top for me. Think that would be it as it stands with injuries. Does show a lack of pace & physical power though. COYR
  13. I think there will have to be a bit of give & take, maybe a slight bend from Lansdowns game plan if you want. Something he actually alluded to on Friday. I don’t see why Walsh couldn’t come in & work with a CEO. That would be a real coup, wasn’t he linked with a few big clubs? COYR
  14. People mention a few of his sudden departures from jobs, but one was Watford, who are a basket case club with regards managers & they ended up going down after he dragged them out of the relegation zone. He left Derby because Mel Morris wanted drones above training so he could watch training ( different to the manager using them! ), so I think there was a level of trust issues there. Think he left Hull quickly due to the offer from Leicester who he set up to do the unthinkable. Might be a few I’m missing, but that’s the main ones I can think of. Really think he will like Lansdowns way of p
  15. You think it was his sole decision? You don’t think Steve Lansdown had to put the rubber stamp on it? Yes Ashton fronted the unveiling ( for want of a better phrase ) along with Jon Lansdown, but that was because of Lockdown & Steve being in Guernsey. There were a few on here who thought he would do ok as well. So yes, he was part of the process, but he doesn’t make final decisions on things like that, if he does, were in a bigger mess than I thought. Reading between the lines, let’s say other ( Hughton ) options didn’t want to work within the parameters set, who sets those parameters? It
