  1. Arsenal and Coventry in the old first division we’re epic and I count myself lucky to have been at both. But for the shear joy and unexpectedness it has to be the 1983 FA cup 1-0 down 2-1 up game against Rovers. I understand why so many of our younger fans have picked the relative recent big cup games ,but they are very unfortunate not to really have experienced the old rivalry with Rovers that was such a part of my teenage years.
  2. Loved the park end.From 1971 to 1977 always went in the park end-my dad who took us so must have been cheaper! Initially sat on railings/small wall that was on right hand side of terrace as looked at pitch above the old halftime scoreboard.Everytime City scored we’d all jump off the wall and run onto pitch -only short distance on ,then climb back up on wall and sit again,no one seemed to mind. Did get a bit fruity in there though ,especially when segregation was only on terrace and you could walk freely between two sides behind the terrace ,many raids were made by home and away fans. Eventually moved to east end as reached teenage years and happily stood in middle for many years.Many interesting days there ,especially when the London clubs visited. Football definitely seemed more of an adventure back then , very glad to have experienced it.

  4. Fantastic memories of some great away games. I’m not sure why they seemed so much more exciting back then,perhaps because we were all a bit younger ,perhaps because of terraces ,perhaps because away days were a bit edgier then. I was at Eastville that day and I think anyone there would find that hard to top,the lack of expectation especially after they went one up and that crush getting out.The Reading game 84 was in this politically correct age mental for all the wrong reasons ,the police dog on the pitch getting loose!!! and why it got loose! I would like to throw in the Hereford away game when we were either bottom or close to bottom of the whole football league.It was sometime near Xmas and memorable not only for a first? away win of the season 3-0 I think-kelly brothers scored.But the 50plus City fans in fancy dress that invaded their stand and sat through the match until kicked out .A chap in suit and bowler hat was left alone by the old bill thinking him kosher.But he was City as well.Happy days.
  5. There are always going to be supporters on both sides of any discussion re managers or players or styles of play. However it is very difficult for a manager when his strikers miss open goals ,his goalie/mildfielder/defender in quick succession all screw up to gift the opposition their opening goal. The players need to stand up and be counted. LJ is doing as well as his resources allow. In the current climate of expectation Alan Dicks would never have survived to take us to the promised land in the 70’s,changing managers is not necessarily going to improve things.
  6. Why relegated.They won at West Brom last week. Enjoy being pessimistic,it will be a long season for you.
  7. Thank goodness there was no otib when Alan Dicks was given several seasons to build a promotion winning team. So many critical comments when we’ve sold some of our better players ,are bedding in newbies and missing our main striker. I think we are progressing albeit slowly and look forward to getting better as the season progresses.
  8. Greg Cunningham Preston to Cardiff £3.5 million. Good move for Greg.
  9. 9 goals in 88 games for derby. Hopefully will be more prolific for us if deal goes through.
  10. Player for Colchester and Physio for Wimbledon when they beat Liverpool in the FA cup. Nice chap ,imagine he has something else lined up .Nothing to see here.
  11. That was the worst east end response ever in my time,and the closest to the end being completely seeded to the away fans. They came in mob handed and were very effective. I was only a nipper and they were scary. To be fair didn’t happen often but that was the closest I saw us being over run in the last 50 years.
  12. To be fair fans have been ejected at various grounds for swearing for years. I'll never forget the first game of the season away to Notts county in the mid 80's or so ,not many of us up there ,and literally 5 mins into the game a bloke to our right said the f word ,but not in a particularly offensive way,and was marched out by two stewards.We all watched our p's and q's that day. Match was a very tedious 0-0 draw,the bloke as it turns out had been quite lucky!
  13. That’s inflation for you ,imagine what we would have got if we’d spent less than 5 million!
  14. That was how to see out a game - with much finer margins all match!
  15. I’m all for a bit of team bonding and rewarding a good season so far. However isn’t Dubai 4 hours in front of us ,if so I suggest we may be suffering a bit of jet lag next weekend after spending most of the week there. Let’s hope that’s not the case and Sunderland suffer the backlash of last Friday.Can’t help thinking may have been better to go so far during an international break,even if everyone couldn’t go.
