  1. I see what you did there. Nicely done.
  2. I think it must be mostly the same interview on the Robins On the Wire podcast. Very impressive.
  3. I think that at my first game they had models being driven around the ground sprawled across the bonnets of Datsun's. I was too young too appreciate it.
  4. Ali Dia? (that 'player' Souness signed for Southamption back in the day) came pretty close They'd probably have been better off signing the real thing.
  5. typical derby. Lots of endeavour, not much quality. Tomlin decent, but I'd be happy with that level of performance against us knowing how good he can be.
  6. ...with a player each sent off (maybe Tomlin from Cardiff) - that would round off a good footballing weekend.
  7. In the 'Bobby Reid' wonder season, I think BR's best performances coincided with Pato playing well. When his form suffered we almost fell off a cliff. Disappointed, but could see why Pato was loaned out after signing SS and KP, although I think KP and Pato could work in the same team - maybe even with NE: we'd need super defensive qualities in the rest of the team if that ever happened. And I'm probably living in the 1980s with a Terry Cooper mindset
  8. Thanks for that. If it was a home game I would have been there. I don't recall seeing many City wins at Brentford (if any(*)) after Steve Neville got his first city goal (or goals) in a 2-0 win in about 1984! (*I haven't been away for years now.)
  9. At least Pato shows flashes of excellence, and (although lightweight) isn't scared of his own shadow. I'd take him over COD at the moment. Now if COD decides to step up his game, that might be a different story...
  10. There's nothing quite like being the biggest team never to hit the prem If you take out the AD years (a statistical blip) you'd have to be about 109 to have been alive when City last player in the top tier and probably 115 to remember it. The current oldest person in the world, Kane Tanaka (117) is Japanese and she is unlikely to have caught any city games in the First Division back in the day.
  11. Are you sure? I'm sure they've usually been a decent league 1 or Championship side. I don't ever recall them dropping to the pits. And yes, probably to your prem question!
  12. I used to think he blew up to engineer moves, but now I think he's just a ticking time bomb, and will inevitably have a major, no coming back from it, bust up with Harris at some future point.
  13. The problem is that it gives and encourages vunerable people opportunity to bet. They want to tempt these people in as these type of customer is where all their money is made. Start beating the bookie regularly for decent money and your account will be quickly restricted and they will ultimately refuse to give you the abilty to bet on anything involving skill. PS I have lost $$$ to online casinos and $ to online bookmakers and whilst I accept full responsibilty for it and don't want a nanny state, there is something inherently wrong with the whole gambling industry.
  14. I remember that well. I thought we lost 3-1 on the day, but it was 40 odd years ago so who knows. I do know my brothers mate was behind the schoolboys enclosure hunting down an errant 2p piece at the time, and missed it!
