  1. Bang on - and going back just a little further you've got Andy Cole, Bob Taylor, etc. In fact, despite our rather modest achievements we haven't half been spoiled at times with some fabulous front men. That doesn't mean we haven't bought any duds upfront, but then again we've bought duds all over the rest of the pitch as well - and we're not alone in that. You can apply that to every single team on the planet. No-one gets it right all of the time. Talk of a strikers curse is bananas and simply doesn't stand up to even the gentlest scrutiny.
  2. Bamboozles me! The bloke's got passion, heart and unbelievable work rate. And he's a bloody decent footballer with an excellent multi-dimensional game that extends way beyond his forward duties. To tick that many boxes is remarkable, so it amazes me so many people wear blinkers and don't give him the credit he warrants. We'd been crying out for a player like this for years, and while he's not irreplaceable, losing him would be a massive blow. Absolute diamond he is!
  3. Encouraging start but we're not even out of November yet. One of the big problems we have as a fan base is our tendency to dramatize things and see only in black and white - a couple of wins and we're going up, a couple of losses and we're absolutely hopeless. A more measured approach would be great, but i guess football fans in general are rarely realistic! Good on him mind!
  4. Wow, a sign of how far Scottish football has fallen - wasn't he struggling in Thailand just recently? Good luck to him and all that, but clearly his comet has truly fizzled out.
  5. Getting totally geeky and sentimental, this was my favourite year ever with City!! (not season, but year!) And to put the question of our ambition into perspective, I think even then (25 years ago!?) Derby had spent more that summer than we have in the last few years put together!!!? They went into that match with an insane amount of talent I think, Lionel Pickering as the sugar daddy?? Murdered in the opening exchanges, but that match went onto be a classic. Was only there because I'd had my heart broken a few nights before in Ritzy (!!!) and was in a right teenage love lost
  6. astonishing game, the sort of match you get on the playstation unbelievable twists and turns, still gives me goosebumps. and what a brilliant atmosphere generated by us as well!!
  7. Was about to post the same! epic match, one of my favourite away games ever!! Tin hat time after
  8. if it's Pulis, I think I'm done with the club, at least until he's gone. Still, would really be a reminder to some that you should be careful for what you wish for. Those thinking that LJ would be replaced by Eddie Howe need their heads checked.
  9. So much about closed doors football terrifies me not least for the precedents it sets: on the lesser end, exactly this - crowd noise being pumped in. As our fan power and need for physical presence is reduced, the power of TV companies and money men becomes all the greater. We will get a situation in a few years time when the FA Cup final is played abroad because the fans no longer mean anything, of that much I'd bet my last pound. Dark forecasts, but no good can come from any of this!
  10. Signs are that the virus globally is generally weakening (which, incidentally, some are arguing as a possible indicator this was man-made in the first place), but in short, everywhere, without consciously doing so, is reverting to the Swedish model by easing their lockdowns. Through a mixture of factors that include virus fatigue and the need to restart our economies, Europe is now playing a high risk game that stands to un-do the good work that was achieved through its stringent lockdowns. Having all been terrified of the risks associated with herd immunity, we've gone that path and the scene
  11. Personally am strongly of the opinion that I'd rather have no football than games behind closed doors, but wouldn't it be something if Benik fired us to Wembley!
  12. There, someone said it - I'm a recent convert having skipped listening for ages simply because I assumed it it would be a cobbled together bore. My humble, most grovelling apologies, therefore, to the OSIB team. Immensely enjoyable, each show I've listened to has been nothing short of ten out of ten. Brilliant stuff, and I'm genuinely left feeling a prat for having such misguided preconceptions. The hat has been eaten!
  13. First time I've listened to this, a really enjoyable listen.
  14. I remember one Greg Goodridge performance against Millwall in the cup when he tore them to shreds - it was an outstanding performance that goes forgotten. Andy Cole in the 5-1 against Cardiff in the cup was different class. Even blindfolded you could tell he was destined to become a huge name. And what about this for a random choice: Junior against Liverpool at AG. Bloody hell he gave them absolute hell, from memory he absolutely blinded them with his pace. And the highest scoring game I've seen, the 9-2 against, admitedly, St. Albans, where I think Agostino banged four or fiv
  15. apparently genuinely very feisty is there rivalry with Gillingham, dates from a match in the 70s i think. Love a random, weird hatred!
