  1. Couldn't reply sooner as I was at the hospital, but saw the game on their TV. OK; great penalty save by their 'keeper. However in ths subsequent scramble for the ball, one of our forwards was pushed over. Why no second pen? In the 38th minute Comini was booked. Her offence was, after the ball had passed, the grab the England winger and throw her to the ground. I though that was going to be a straight red.
  2. That was Easter Saturday 1975. The day before City won 1-0 at Soton, but Norwich had no game. On the Saturday Norwich looked fresher and the result showed it. They went up, City had to labour another year in Div 2.
  3. That Hull fan I quoted earlier has posted again; I really despair at these two clowns running my football club. Nigel Adkins is one of lifes gentlemen, a thoroughly decent man and a very astute football manager. I see dark days ahead for Hull City, but I wish Nigel Adkins and Middlesborough the best of luck, I hope the club treat him well, the fans there should be very happy with their acquisition.
  4. This was posted elsewhere by a Hull fan six weeks ago; Yeah, but with Adkins maybe abandoning ship along with quite a few players, Bristol are in better shape out of the two of us. Rumour is that he might go to Middlesbrough this summer - can't say I blame him.
  5. Ain't tis more their style?
  6. On the radio, they've just been talking about the African Champions League Final which was played yesterday. The score was 2-1 and a possible equaliser went in, or did it? The Ref wasn't sure, so refused to award it it without VAR back up. The VAR team refused to help as their TV was broken. After a delay of 85 minutes, the game was abandoned with the team winning 2-1 awarded the win. https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/astonishing-scenes-as-broken-var-reaks-havoc-in-african-champions-league-final/news-story/eab5dc370d8659f26a63f3b2a373bd40 And ultimately the game was called off with half an hour to play as ES Tunis were crowned African champions for the second year in a row in a game that started in May and finished in June.

    Tony Thorpe

    City spent more in the summer of 1998 than ever before. Forwards Ade Akinbiyi came from Gillingham for £1.2 million, Tony Thorpe from Fulham for £1 million and Danish International Soren Anderson was secured for £700,000. During 1999/2000, Tony Thorpe was loaned to Luton where he teamed up with Adam Locke who had moved there under the Bosman ruling. Tony Thorpe played for Luton on Boxing Day and against them two days later in the last game of the century, a goal less draw watched by nearly 12,000 at Ashton Gate. The following season Tony scored his 100th goal in a 4-0 win over Notts Co. The opening fixture of 2001/02 was at Northampton. Thorpe scored a hat trick in the first 26 minutes of the season and City won 3-0. During the summer of 2002 Tony Thorpe went on a free transfer to Luton
  8. Things to look forward to in 2019/20. At "Tier 2" level, the last game of the regular season will be City's 2,200th. The 57th goal of the season will be number 2,900 at this level. Since joining the league; the 17th win of the season will be number 1,800. City's first goal will be number 6,600 and we need 52 points to have clocked up 5,500.
  9. Pity then Middlesbrough didn't get promoted and save us that long journey.
  10. 20 years ago we were saying that about Steve Phillips.
  11. Just drop down a couple of Tiers.
  12. Anyone else notice? At the end of the game, the PAS blared out "Red, red robin". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlton_Athletic_F.C. Charlton's most common nickname is The Addicks. The most likely origin of this name is from a local fishmonger, Arthur "Ikey" Bryan, who rewarded the team with meals of haddock and chips Meanwhile, failure to be promoted has possibly wrecked Sunderland's financial plans. Which of their players will now be available at a reduced price (and would we want them)?
