  1. It’s a bit drastic, but that’s life as a manager. He got them to the playoffs last season, but if you go on a bad run you’re doomed.
  2. It was so dire I fell asleep. Did I miss anything?
  3. I don’t think comparing OTIB’ers and SL’s net wealth percentage is a fair comparison. For an average person, who owns a house, the house as a percentage value of their total wealth will be high. This applies to me as my total wealth might seem to be high, but most of it is tied up in my house. Unless I sell and move to a cheaper house I can’t access this money I haven’t a clue of the value of SL house on Guernsey, but let’s say it’s £10m. As his total wealth is reported to be somewhere in the region of two billion pounds, the amount tied up in his house is minuscule. He must have so
  4. It’s life Jim, but not as we know it. Very appropriate for the Rovers’ fans
  5. He’s never going to be a 20 + goals per season player but I’d keep him, if his financial demands are within reason. He adds more to the team than just goals and just needs to be partnered with the correct goal scoring partner. If he went, how much would it cost to replace him? Even with a replacement who has a good track record there’s no guarantee he would be a success at City. Better to stick with the devil you know
  6. This was a very interesting read but I’m not convinced it was about the match I watched. The fact that Preston controlled the game for long periods in the second half didn’t get a mention. It was really “a game of two halves” . Perhaps this didn’t full coverage was because to analyse it in detail Oli would have to have doubled the amount he wrote, and he had just too much keyboard exhaustion to carry on On second thoughts it was a game of three thirds or possibly four quarters which would be far too difficult to analyse
  7. I’d like to see Cotts back at Ashton Gate as manager of Shrewsbury if he gets them promoted next season, assuming we are still in the Championship. He’d get a fantastic reception
  8. City list 9-0 to Coventry in 1934. I remember it well as we were unlucky and should have won
  9. Even if he was asked he didn’t have to publish anything. The fact that he did makes him, in my opinion, a good journalist. Richard Latham is an excellent journalist. If anyone had “difficulties” with him it says a lot about them
  10. I didn’t make my comments based on today’s performance. It was what they’re done over their careers at City. Perhaps a better way to put it is to say what they haven’t done - ie consistently affect the game over a long period of matches.
  11. I’m going to go against the flow and say that if these four players become regular starters we’re not going to make it as a a promotion team in the near future. They all have attributes but none of them are capable of regularly putting in a good 90 minutes. Odd flashes of skill, but not consistent performances. Today, Palmer was excellent for 20 minutes, then average for the next 25, and not really in the game in the second half. They may develop as they are young ish but the Premier League is a long way away. Last season Norwich was a poor Premier League team that was relegated but now, with
  12. It seems as though we have a bunch of ageing rockers on the forum judging by all the talk of wonderful motorbikes. Just for a bit of balance, I had a Vespa Sportique. A crazy design really as the engine wasn’t fitted on the centre line of the bike
  13. Get @Dr Balls to sort it out. He cured himself in record time
  14. Well done @ncnsbcfc for the early news two days ago. If you’ve got any more news in the future, let us have it, as we won’t be up to date if we have to depend on info from the club. Don’t be put off if people demand to know the source or facts.
