  1. I actually know a rovers “fan” who has swapped to City, which if I am honest I respect him less for then when he was a gashead. He asked to come to a game with me and my group and I told him that isn’t ever happening, back in the late 90’s when there was a real rivalry he would give me all sorts of abuse as a prowed gashead, it makes me sad to think people change their club based on a new stadium etc. and he will always be that guy to me! of course, new generations of fans is different in my opinion, but once you have chosen you have chosen - OTIB!
  2. I think it’s happened, but as he is not our asset we cannot make the announcement as we would with a contracted player like Wright, Kalas etc. I would think Stoke want to have their doctors look at it, negotiate with us how the remainder of his loan will be managed, and most importantly they will want to protect the image of a player they bought for 12m and want to sell on. It may well be our hands are tied until Stoke have a plan....
  3. You can’t be offside from a defender passing the ball, irrelevant of anything else, so this rule does not add to or improve the scenario you describe. It’s when the ball was played by an attacking player, previously BA was offside “when the ball was played” to him, irrelevant of the touch from Moore. If Moore “passed” the ball to BA he is onside, always has been. The rule seems awful as surely Moore has to Attempt to stop the ball going to BA, and in so doing plays him onside, ridiculous rule. The only other option is Moore leaves it and hopes he is offside, if the Lino doesn’t give it then Moore has made a huge mistake. Of course VAR makes this rule clearer in some ways as even if the Lino missed the offside (it was tight) the replay would catch it. This may well become a new way of defending in the future, Liverpool have started playing very high knowing that VAR will save them if they get it right. No VAR in the champ tho at the moment....
  4. No problem with selling him, has hit a ceiling - but he should have been upgraded at the start of the summer so the new boy (s) could learn the system. Huge gamble based on the timing. and Cardiff of all clubs - soulless sham of a club
  5. Anyone not wanting this is crazy, he is quality, the reaction of Cardiff fans tells you everuthing. However I fear this is warnock on the wind up!
  6. Unless I am wrong - one senior specialist right back, one left back, one defensive midfielder, the squad is not well balanced. Injuries to certain players, Hunt JDS and either one of Pack or Brownhill and we are in trouble. Not panicking, but not feeling like we have covered all bases this summer
  7. Warm welcome for him this season - I will show him the respect he has shown us there
  8. Although we got to the right decision, it was marginal. However, my question is this; there was a goal scored last night, neither the ref or linesman gave a decision, so I am guessing the VAR team review to ensure no rules have been broken. How long do they roll back? If that was a 60 pass move would everything be reviewed? If the move started from a throw in, do we review for a foul throw? Once we start saying it’s black and white, no room for error then everything is open to review, if not it is subjective and therefore no better then where we are now - just my thoughts.
  9. Probably the only time I can say I have an inside line, but we made a good but not great offer to him in Jan which he hasn’t accepted - other clubs top end champ (budget wise) and lower prem were alerted and he and his agent worked out his value based on that. Allegedly we were at the 15k mark and other clubs, including Stoke, are comfortable to go some way above that to get him. No idea if there has been a falling out etc. but it seems there are clubs who will pay more, pretty simple I guess. This info was given to me at Heathrow by a mate of a mate, when I said I supported City he laughed and told me the story, back in Feb. All seems to be true, and he works in the game. Shame; he could be one that goes on to better himself, I am really unsure. That money per week at City could be better spent I think.
  10. And now you love to be hated!! Hahaha you are such an embodiment of delusion. Not hated, not admired, just nothing.
  11. For me you are a perfect villa fan. So confused, having read your posts it goes from penalty and goal ruled out were unfair, to we win fair and square, all in 20 minutes. No idea why I am even replying if I’m honest, other than to clarify I hope you don’t go up, and FFP comes home to roost ASAP.
