    I ain't happy with games on the red button option

    I get to a few more home games (maybe 4) but otherwise this is exactly my situation, and I suspect, a lot of others. I was actually thinking of cancelling my Sky sports subscription, until the Red Button came along...

    9 international call ups

    Does the current Austrian team have a wealth of forward players, keeping Wiemann from getting a call up? A little surprising..

    Team for Millwall

    I would drop Kent. Otherwise ok.

    Ever watched Rovers at home not playing City?

    Twice. Once as a kid in the late '70s at Eastville. My parents had some Swedish Friends who used to stay with us over Christmas. We would normally take them to see top flight Bristol City FC (as you all know, Swedes love their football), but this particular Christmas City were away. Gas versus Newcastle. I remember Peter Withe playing for the Toon. That's how long ago it was. Second occasion, when home from University I saw an FA cup 1st round match at Twerton Park with my brother. Here is my shocking secret - he is a gashead (My dad was City, I am City, don't ask me how it happened, just an embarrassing family story)

    If Lansdown had bought the Gas

    It's like those "alternative history" novels, if the Nazis had invaded Britain. A dark alternative history of a blue dominated Bristol. Too chilling to think about..

    My thoughts exactly. I was at the game and thought Woodrow was very poor, and should now be allowed to return to Fulham. My Fulham supporting mate also doesn't rate him BTW. Gustav, on the other hand, it was hard to judge too much from his late cameo, but was definitely better than Woodrow, and given a bit of game time, might sharpen up. At least as a squad player.

    Single greatest moments watching City

    I was too young to travel to the Coventry game, but if I had been there, I might have rated that first. Of all the others mentioned, last night, the atmosphere, the sheer joy of that last minute goal, plus the class of Bryan's goal, just standing in that stadium soaking up the atmosphere, realising that, finally, after 40 bloody years we are finally getting back to the big time...I can't think of another game to match it. Being there with my son added to the occasion.

    "I believe that they are not Red Indians anymore. Now Native Americans?" While attending a Rodeo in Wisconsin last year, the compare said that it is no longer politically correct to refer to (the audience) as "Red Necks". Henceforth they are to be called Nascar Americans!

    Embarrassed Today

    I was there also, and have to agree with the opening poster. Worst shambles from a City team that I can remember. We are a Jekyll and Hyde team. I was at Derby and saw 45 minutes of class followed by 45 minutes of pathetic surrender. We all saw (either at the Gate or on TV) the great performance against Huddersfield. How is this the same team that showed up today? I have reflected on this. This is why our players are not top rate players, plying their trade in the Premiership. They have no consistency. The occasional sublime performance, then nothing. Is that the manager's fault?
