  1. I’m sure it’s a spoof but if Mark Ashton reads it I’m sure he’ll take the key drivers and run them up the flagpole to see if Steve Lansdown salutes. Just wait until we get his next real press release. Look out for “options”
  2. That’s not bad wearing football boots and kit

    He was good today but, in a way, it sums up City’s problems. In the summer City signed Massengo, Nagy, and Palmer but none of them managed to get onto the pitch today . Patterson, Smith and Brownhill, who played, are all signings from previous seasons so how has the club progressed?
  4. The second prize is two Rovers shirts
  5. I’ve just realised what today’s match reminded me of - the Chuckle Brothers. To me - to you - to me - to you. City would attack and lose possession then it was Barnsley’s turn. End to end stuff with awful defending balanced by awful finishing. It was entertaining, as it was so open, but this isn’t the way to gain promotion. There were 26 shots in the match (one every approx 3.4 minutes) which would be great if they were mostly from City, but most were from Barnsley. At least we had a lot of box entries

    I agree 100 % with this. The comment I made in another thread was: “The midfield was totally overrun today. The two players who could have added any bit of defensive stability were Brownhill and Smith. Both failed miserably so I’d give both a 4. Smith flattered you deceive with a few good bits interspersed with giving the ball away far too often “

  8. I think some people aren’t being realistic about Bobby Reid. He had one excellent season for City and that has subsequently been followed by one and a half seasons where is goal scoring has been poor. As @Bar BS3 said, if we signed any other player with his recent scoring record there would be uproar, especially as the fee seems to be £11m. I watched the match last night and his running and chasing was excellent but, when he had half chances, his finishing was poor. We’ve got plenty of players who can run around a bit. What we need is a clinical finisher
  9. The omens are bad for today. @havanatopia isn’t coming because it would cost and extra £500 and @Bristol is red , who has a 100% losing record, is coming. What else can go wrong?
  10. Thanks for the warning. I’d wear a string vest if I had one. (Can anyone remember string vests?)

    Baker

    Some players are just natural permanent sick notes. No matter what they do, or how they train, they spend as much time injured as they do playing. Perhaps Baker is one of them
  12. You might get an M B E for your work on promoting Parson Street Station. On the other hand it might be a CDM (Cadburys Dairy Milk)
