  1. I went to that game, Juve were playing Swindon in an Anglo-Italian tournament a few days later (I think they lost 4-0 to Swindle) and used us as a warm up match. There were a few Juve fans at the game mixed in with the City fans and it was all very good natured
  2. His trouble is he's only ever available for part of a season due to injuries and after an injury takes a few games to get back in the swing, he's then very good for a run of games before another injury strikes. We need more players who don't get injured (eg like Brownhill or Flint when he was here). He obviously thinks he's good enough for the Prem but he'd be no more than a bench-warmer there (if that). Provided we get a decent fee the money can be better invested elsewhere.
  3. I remember him scoring against Tottenham in the home leg of our League Cup semi final in the early 70's
  4. I was meaning adult prices, your brother would have got in for probably half that. In 1958 the average annual wage was £569, ie about £11 per week
  5. In 1958 in probably cost around 2/- (10p in todays money) to see the game whereas now it's around £30, even accounting for inflation that's a massive increase, also the 1958 figures included all the big clubs as there wasn't a Premier League then, that's probably why attendances are lower
  6. I see that TP was quoted as saying "Bristol City apologised for beating us and said we should have won" when summarising how unlucky they'd been on their recent losing run, I find that hard to believe
  7. We've agreed a fee with Chelsea but yet to agree personal terms so if he gets a better offer from elsewhere he can choose to leave, we just get the first chance to make him an offer then it's up to him
  8. It would be very high-risk for LJ to change clubs, if he had a bad run like he's done before it could be enough to get him the sack elsewhere, then he'd be looking for a job in L1/2 a bit like his dad after he left us. If he stays he's got a fair chance of winning promotion next season and ending up a Prem manager, there's also his family to think of who've settled in the area. I know he grew up in the Fulham area and has some connections there but I don't think they'll be any better than us next year even with parachute money.
  9. I think we're in with a good chance provided LJ is still here, we obviously need a goalscorer to give Fam some competition and it would be good if we could sign a couple of the Chelsea loanees
  10. WBA are the only team who would still be on parachute money next season so has to be them, unfortunately don't think they're good enough to win it
  11. I just use the VPN on the free Opera browser, the encryption side of it isn't much good but you can choose 3 or 4 different worldwide locations which is good enough for watching the footy
  12. The rule is actually that teams must have 10 players from the team in the previous game in the squad so some could be on the bench
  13. It's obviously unlikely but anything can happen in 2 games, if Derby lose at Swansea and we win at Millwall then it will be 'on' again. There are certainly some strange results at the end of a season, when the Gas went non-league the first time they'd been in the relegation position was after the final match! When we had our first season in Div 1 in the 70's we were rock bottom and looked down and out but a run of good results and we escaped on the last day of the season at Coventry, it can be done.
  14. You're being a bit harsh on the lad as was the ref, I'm sure City will appeal the red card. Up until then thought he did OK.
