  1. Pack's goal gif revealed

    Normally, I would find these sort of things a bit naff. But, I think I quite like them. Harmless bit of fun. Bet other clubs soon nick the idea.
  2. The use of Flint at GK's....

    Ah, I've misinterpreted what you're all saying. I wasn't there last night, but this would explain what Fielding's trying to do.
  3. The use of Flint at GK's....

    I thought you were referring to getting Flint to take goal kicks. Anyone think that someone else may need to take over kicking duty from Fielding? Noticed Reading doing it last season. Fielding's having an amazing season, but it's quite funny how bad his goal kicks are.
  4. Whether you believe in the manager or not...

    I think I'm going to be grumbling about that one all season! Everyone knows they're crap. They know they're crap. And it's wonderful to see them struggling.
  5. Malaysian investors interested in City?

    We can't. I dread the day we ever get taken over by an owner who couldn't give two hoots about our beloved club. Hopefully, that day will never come. Too many foreign owners are destroying so many of our football clubs. Although it's by no means just foreign owners. There have been/are some truly dreadful British owners.
  6. Dolman PA - update

    I'd prefer no sound at all to be honest. Quite like to be able to chat to the people around me without having to raise my voice.
  7. The problem with moving Joe to left-midfield or CM is that we tried that last season and it didn't really pay off. Moving him about constantly just caused confusion. Johnson has said many times he sees Joe as a LB so I'd be extremely surprised if he was moved out of position again. I would love to see Kelly go straight in to the first team but his time will come.
  8. Where do you stand on this?

    I think for the likes of a mid-table Prem side, it's counter-productive. They're never going to win the title, so why not try and win a cup? The reality is that finishing in the top half of the table seems to be valued higher than winning a cup. In the same way that finishing 4th is now seen as the equivalent of having won something when it isn't. Football/sport is about winning things. Too many clubs have forgotten that. Same for teams fielding weakened sides in the Europa League. And the old adage of winning breeds winning still applies. Clubs should be able to field whatever teams they like (the punishment dished out to whoever it was for fielding a weakened side in Johnson's Paint (?) was ridiculous), but they're missing a big trick if they treat the league cup with disdain. It's slightly different for a club like ours, but a good run in the cup breeds confidence throughout the squad. We're not going to win it, but the experience of playing and maybe beating a top flight club must feel great.
  9. Freddie Hinds (Merged)

    Can see him coming on second half if all not going to plan. Both of his goals have been gems, and in a team/squad of players who can't shoot for toffee. To be able to finish in that style for someone so young isn't a fluke. This kid clearly has talent. Can't see him being loaned out and nor would I want him to be. He strikes me as a very different striker to Tammy. Tammy was a poacher. Almost all of his goals came within the six-yard box. Both Hinds's goals have been bullets from way outside the penalty area. Very impressive.
  10. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    Talking of which, it's now £2 for a single!! I only ever get the Abus home and am used to paying £1. I believe it's still £2 return.
  11. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    Yep, shame. But I wish Burton well and hope they survive again this year...Then again, I hope we survive as well! Them staying up was the story of last season's Championship.
  12. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    Will defer to the opinion of the majority on here. I have to admit that I don't often pay much attention to opposing players, so when we're linked with X, Y and Z, I'm often scratching my head wondering who they are.
  13. Watford - Away

    A complete guess, but I'd say yes. It's only a cup game, they're unlikely to sell a huge number of tickets, very low risk game in terms of potential trouble, and they'll want to get as many away fans along as possible.
  14. Is top 6 realistic this season?

  15. Is top 6 realistic this season?

    Fair point, and Korey was certainly one who you could make the 'excellence' case for. However, his injuries last season stymied his progress and we didn't see enough, but he has showed glimpses of being back to his best. Let's see how he is in a few months. Korey's an interesting player though. A very busy effervescent midfielder who specialises in doing the simple things right. Johnson has played him as an attacking midfielder, but I'm not sure he's that creative a player. More of a link between defence and attack. And he certainly doesn't score goals. He can also count himself extremely unlucky to have been overlooked as captain, for both this and last season. My guess is that you want your captain to be a guaranteed starter, and for Johnson, Korey may not be.
