  1. Every double act was a poor man's M&W.
  2. No., but I've discovered that I have a hooker's grip!
  3. Maynard was running his contract down. It was only when no premier league clubs came in for him that he agreed the move to Wham, who were looking odds on for promotion. The fee was only £2m because he only had 6 months left on his contract. The player had us over a barrel so not a poor decision by the club - £2m from Wham was better than b****r all that summer!
  4. IIRC the reason we turned down Leicester's bid is that Maynard had made it clear ( at that time!) that he would only leave for a move to a premier league club.
  5. That would make a good April Fool. Another would be to suggest we will sell players for £20m.
  6. Come on that's as unlikely as, lets say. City signing a keeper who just played in the world cup as England's number 1.
  7. Early last season I commented that Webster was the closest I'd seen to Collier. Playing in today's top flight I think Webster could go on to be as good, if not better, but as always, it's difficult to compare players from different eras.
  8. Best defender Ive seen in a City shirt.
  9. Players wages = Emperors new clothes. Everyone in football, especially agents, continually justifies as to why they have to be at the level they are. Most fans , outside the really big clubs, know that wage levels cannot be really justified, and especially at our level when the majority of clubs are running at substantial losses, caused primarily by the wage budget. How many owners, in their businesses outside of football, would pay staff wages that exceeded the business income? Prior to the virus, there were already signs, through ffp issues, that clubs were starting to reassess their financial management, and perhaps when we eventually come out of this crisis, we might be pleasantly surprised by the direction that wage negotiations take. Then again it is April 1st!
  10. Or 2 hours more entertainment than a typical City home match at Ashton Gate!
  11. Sounds like @City Rocker is ahead of the curve!
  12. What's the difference between a dog and a fox? About 10 pints!
  13. While I can't get out and play a round with other golfers on the course, to keep my hand during lockdown I'm using the web site "play around with yourself at home".
  14. A couple? You'll need wrist splints!
