  1. So why make statements like "Very few, if any managers accept responsibility for a defeat. " and then complain when someone points out you are wrong again
  2. What manager would you choose over Johnson and why? ("its not my job" answer won't cut it. If you want to call for the manager, you must have a solution) I cannot think of ANY manager in the entire football league given the resources that Johnson has been given that would not have got us in the playoffs for the last three seasons. Clearly he made a huge profit on Webster, but what about his other buys - Kalas seems half the player he was, Massengo and Nagy too. Do we want give LJ more money to devalue more players? I have to say anyone over Johnson would be an improvement, I hate Warnock and Pulis style football but thats currently better than the dross that Johnson is serving up. It seems we were lucky with injuries early in the season, Lee had little choice who he played, the team performed, as soon as he has a choice of players he overthinks things and things go downhill fast. What league position at this stage of the season would you be happy with? If someone new came in mid table would satisfy me if I could see steps being taken for a promotion push next seen Is it purely footballing reasons you would like Johnson gone? See my response to 1 a resounding yes If in 5 weeks time we were 3rd, but still playing the football we are, would you still want him gone? Yes, because we could equally be 10th 5 weeks after that How long would you give a new manager to get us into the playoffs? This season and next season. I have been supporting City since the 60s and was there that wonderful day at Highbury in 1976, and also at Northampton in 1983 when we lost 7-0 or was it 7-1 happy to support the team but if LJ does not go will think seriously about renewing my season ticket next year
  3. 37 for me the same as yours plus barnet
  4. In the early 70s my first job was in a brewery pubs bought beer for 10p a pint and sold it at 15p (so 50% mark up on cost) but back then pub rents were around £3 per week. Markups have increased over the years as rents have increased - my small back street boozer rent was £2k a month a few years back, mark ups on a pint are in the region of 125-150% now in pubs. As for the £5 pint comedians, this will have been purchased by the club for less than £2 - with this pricing policy I will drink outside the ground in future.
  5. the record attendance was at Ninian park ccfc v city april 1947 49,310 according to 11v11 although I have seen 51000 quoted elsewhere when they played the gas in the same season only 28699 turned up at Cardiff (no locked out jokes please)
  6. false dawn's is a bit of a giveway, unless a BRFC director can't spell
  7. Assuming enterprise want to sell the price would be remarkably cheap. A building worth £1,000,000 as a house/office etc, would be lucky to fetch £400k as a pub. Interesting as the telegraph article is above - its not accuarate. My first job was for a brewery (back in 1971) back then rents were not seen as an income stream, so a basic back street drinkers local would have a monthly rental of £5 (beer at the time was 12p a pint) when I left my back street village drinkers pub in 2009 the rental was £2500 a month if beer had gone up at the same rate that 12p pint would be £60 now! so the idea that the pub companies are not profiteering b*stards is completely wrong - like a lot of other "news/analysis" in the telegraph. I could still make a reasonable living from my pub, but others who followed me couldn't and its now shut. If the club were to buy the Sun (again assuming Enterprise would sell) they would make sufficient money from match days (profit on a £3 pint is £1.50 - staff wages are not far off minimum wage) to make it support a tenant or manager on non match days.
  8. So was I, biggest memory was the Chester PA announcer inviting all city fans onto the pitch to applaud our team. Can you imagine a similar invitation in today's football?
