  1. "MA misfits" Come on, give that bit of nonsense a rest. What really? How come MA managed to get us a team that was so competitive in the top half of this league until Covid struck; when i believe we were 7th and looking liking getting points on every single away trip apart from Baggies and Leeds
  2. Yet another woeful display brings out a few cert's on OTIB; 1) those who didnt like Lj for his 'awful football' have gone really,really quiet as the same squad look so defensively naive and unmotivated.2) those who didnt think Holden did a decent job are also very quiet, wondering like me, what has NP brought to the party. Surely the two other coaches must go and NP allowed to bring in his own players and coaches; losing to Wycome is really bad isnt it?
  3. Brilliant recollection of one of the very best dadys on my life - and surely many who come on to this forum old enough to remember Those days seem a million miles from today's nonsense of Sky and Robins TV, football agents earning millions, clubs run by foreign owners with greed and ego as their main motivation, fans who want instant success etc etc There are some on here who wanted 'Johnson Out, Holden Out and soon will want Pearson Out so a word to make you feel less bad; Just 4 years on from that brilliant day v Pompey and the even better one at Highbury, City fans would shout and
  4. It may be our age and i am not suggesting we would all be better off in those 'Golden Days' of 70s and 80s but today for a Cup Semi in front of 4000, photos of 'plastics' all taking photos and chatting on their phones, just feels very tame today. At least events around the sport/business are not boring right now; imagine playing with the Top 6 no longer there - wow! separate threads i know for ESL
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/56541928 Not he same as semi's gone by with blokes packed into Villa Park, Old Trafford, 2 hrs before kick-off, wet backs of legs, raucous singing and more
  6. Totally agree with Dave in SA They get whatever they want and they can players whatever terms are agreed by them, their agents, the broadcasters and the ESL Will it mean two professional leagues in England; Prem 1 and we will be in Prem 2 total 38 clubs? several variations on this with then an EFL North, and EFL South as both go part-time and (nearly bankrupt). Interesting view on part-time split should be East/West
  7. Hope he recovers quickly. Anyone herd about 'Our Man' Cotts recently? Wednesday will probably take the Knee for their coach and 5 mins silence for the Duke so what time will we ever K.O on Saturday - close to 3pm!
  8. City fans v OTIB regulars; Easy win for those at Aston Gate
  9. Like Bristol doesnt have it's fair share of 'the same' throwing fire bombs at the same people who have been saving this country from covid with their efforts to get PPE to hospitals and carehomes. Big cities all the same but Scousers about the lowest form of humanity - ask Juventus and Italian football fans what they think of people 'remembering' Hillsborough
  10. Markcarter, the evidence is that stayed with Lee Johnson for all that time, and, as i said at the time the partnership was broken by SL/MA, we have to be very happy what we wish for as City fans and the results (away from home and cup runs in particular) and final table positions under LJ/DH are quite likely to be better than we see for any future consequtive 4 years. The 'Anti-brigade' (some of whom go to matches home and away) didnt believe me then, may not believe me now, despite DN and NP Appointments, but 4 years in the top half of the Championship is absolutely not to be sneezed at
  11. Blimey, what is going on with this thread; even Uno being reasonable and not slagging off fans who know their football and their club. Keep it up old bean!
  12. Agree with Super (for a change!) Obviously a good assistant to Lee J, made the most of his first attempt at being boss, taking the same players we seem happy to consider 'useless' to a respectable place this season before the crippling injuries finally caught him out. Good luck Deano and he'll get a good reception at BS3, as most previous managers do.
  13. Anyone fancy a bet that the 3 relegated clubs from last season in the Prem will be the (so boring) 3 that return that way next month? And then we cast our minds to June 24th when the fixtures come out and we all renew our hope; - for what, a bet, a fantasy or just a reason to complain that City arent top of the league? Anyone else fancy a bet that Sheff U, Fulham and West Brom wont be the three teams going up next season. Is it me or has 'rewarding the failure' of teams relegated from the Prem just made the Championship rather pointless?
  14. All good responses City fans except the usual waste-of-space Dante. Reference to Messi and other short players is a fair comment as the OP is more about how important Fam has been to us over several seasons and how, without him we are exposed defensively to high balls in our defence. As to 'How we play' i think every team in our division has to defend high balls into their box' so a lack of height may be a factor?
  15. Some interesting stats from an otherwise less than exciting gamve at home to Forest. In defensive aerial duties we are really poor this season and every other coach has worked out our frailties; 'Bentley' flaps at anytime in 'his' six yard box, it's been toeasy to get behind our FBs, we have little hieght not command agaisnt setpieces. Kalas, IMO, has been very good but not quite as good as when he had Webster alongside him. Other than that we only have Fam who can win defensive headers and v Forest he only came on at 72 mins and still won 5 aerial headers. Kalas had 7, playing of course
