    Just by chance I found this. Fast forward to 3' 10" and then 3' 42". Finally 19' 02"
  2. Look at the Boro forum. https://www.oneboro.co.uk/forum/topic/10492-boro-v-bristol-city-1-3-assombalonga/page/30/#comments Boro, meanwhile, are slowly but surely reverting to the kind of tactics Tony Pulis would approve of. I threw up after reading that but Tallentaire is right, just hoof ball and long throws, no game plan, yeh we need to scrap and just do what we can to win but the players don't seem capable off doing anything other than hitting it long, hitting it over the bar, hitting it out of play, long throws, over powering set pieces and being slow on the ball. Ah sounds like
  3. That goal was a landmark. City have, over the years, now scored 2,900 goals in Div 2 / Championship.

    City v Boro

    I remember those years too. Every year Boro used to come and play for a 0-0. That 69-70 game; Boro were defending the Open End in the 2nd half and with ten mins to go, their 'keeper turned round and was annoyed we wouldn't say how long to go! Boro always looked drab then as their away shirt was funerial black & blue stripes.
  5. No one else seems to have noticed; tonight's result means City are now mathematically safe from relegation! 13 pts clear of 21st placed Hull with only twelve available.
  6. OK the three defeats since resumption mean City are going nowhere. Therefore I suggest we treat the remaining games as pre season friendlies and experiment with players, formations and tactics to find something that works.
  7. If Wigan finish 11 pts away from relegation, then the deduction cuts in and they would go down. If they were relegated anyway, then the deduction is deferred and next season they start on minus 12.
  8. It all depends. If Wigan finish outside the relegation zone, then the -12 will be applied. If they do finish in he bottom three, then the minus 12 is applied next season.
  9. For many years, we fans have felt the team has under achieved. Just to start a discussion; has City consistently had a poor defence, particularly late in games which causes forwards to be cautious in case they need to get back and help out? 2007/08 City took the lead against relegation bound Leicester in the 92nd minute, but could only draw. City equalised against Sheff U in the 94th minute and still lost. Relegation bound Sunderland were 3-0 down at half time at AG, but they went home with a point. More recently 2-0 and then 4-2 up against Hull and had to fight back t
  10. Goal keeper Mike Gibson saved a penalty on his debut for City. When he retired, he was replaced by Ray Cashley who..... saved a penalty on his debut. 79/80(?) season, City had a different goalie for three consecutive league matches. Neither Chelsea, nor Manchester City have ever won a League game at Ashton Gate.

  12. They'll have to go like a train!
  13. Such a game may be useful to establish "match sharpness", but AFAIK, none have been announced.

    For you young 'uns, this was sports reports before Jeff Stelling; Some things never change though; when they get round to the Div 3 table, Rovers are 14th. Where are they in the same division today - 14th.
