  1. Thanks for that, I know there was some confusion on the other thread ie was it Luke Wilkshire who went in goal? and the penalty. It all makes sense now, I had forgotten that Lee Peacock had gone to Wednesday.
  2. I remember Stefan Maierhofer, a tall striker we had on loan from Wolves in 2010 going in goal, possibly for Dean Gerken. He actually did better in goal than he did as a striker! Also, think this was mentioned yesterday during a thread re us playing Sheffield Weds. a few seasons ago Lee Peacock went in goal at Hillsborough, think he saved a penalty..
  3. Also the chicken could be a "cock", aubergines/eggplants are also used in a Moussaka.
  4. The word "eggplant" is the American word for "aubergine". Most commonly eaten in this country in an Indian side dish known as a Brinjal Bhaji, which is usually pretty tasty. I think Ann Summers and other similar shops have a slightly different version
  5. This may have been done before, but does anyone know the reason for the noon kick-off?
  6. It is an amazing fact that next season will be the first time they have played outside the top 2 tiers of English football since 1957. Not bad for a relatively small town, and they have won the old 1st Division, FA Cup and EUFA Cup. Plenty of big city clubs have graced the 3rd tier during that time, including Man City, Leeds, Forest, Villa, most of the current Premier League and Championship, even the mighty Bristol City!
  7. Didn't realise who he was and, as he appears to be someone who seemed to be a sad serial poster, this post intrigued me enough to look at my previous posts and realised that he called me a "cock", because he didn't agree with my opinion that I would prefer City to get promotion to the Premier League than float around in mid table in the Championship! In other words, basically he seemed to want us to fail in our main ambition which is obviously to achieve Premier League status. It looks like he was one of those losers who, if he was unable to articulate an opinion on any given subject he felt justified in name-calling and generally abusing a passionate City fan of 60 years standing, rather than having a constructive debate. If he doesn't post on here ever again, I am sure no one will miss his retrograde and repulsive rubbish.
  8. Went for Webster (but thought hard about Kallas and Fammy before doing so), Jay for Young player, and Matty Taylor's corner flag run and "Game management" against WBA for my champagne moment. Would also give honourable mentions to the Fammy penalty against QPR and the Weimann hat trick. COD's goal against Norwich at Carrow Road was also special but felt that a champagne moment must be in a game we won - or at least got something out of.
  9. It was West Brom's fault anyway, they didn't have anyone marking the corner flag
  10. I know sometimes fans get cheesed off with the expression "Game Management", but that was an absolute masterclass in how to execute it. He even ended up taking a booking for the team by fiddling with his socks before taking the next throw-in. Right down in front of me in the Lower Dolman. It was at that moment that I knew we would win the game as (along with Fammy's contribution in the last minute) it was fairly obvious that, after all that, once WBA cleared the ball the ref would blow for FT. Brilliant stuff!!
  11. Went to the match in 76, brilliant defending and result. This was billed as the make or break for promotion for both teams, although WBA recovered after this and went up with us in 3rd place (pre-play off days!) The match had been re-arranged from a Saturday afternoon from a few weeks before which City had requested to be postponed as most of the squad had flu! Drove up with some mates and didn't realise the game was off until we were stopped by a friendly copper on the slip road coming off the motorway, within sight of the Hawthorne's floodlights. This was pre mobile phones and internet and we were listening to cassettes on the way up so didn't catch any news on the radio. Ended up going to see Blues v Norwich which was a 1st Division game (not a very good one though) remember it being 1-1, Ted McDougall scored for Norwich and Kenny Burns was a seriously hard (dirty!) player for Brum. The WBA fixture seemed to be become a local derby for us in our First Division days as we always seemed to play them over the Christmas and Easter holidays. Remember going up there on a Boxing Day (77/78?) and we drew 1-1, Keith Fear getting our goal. Also, I think this was in 79/80 around New Year's Bank Holiday, just one lane open on the M5 due to heavy snow and being amazed that the game was still on (one of the few games not postponed that day). IIRC correctly we got thrashed 3 or 4 nil, Bryan Robson playing like the class player he was starting to become. I think Peter Barnes (later a Man. City winger) tore us apart. That was our relegation season. Also remember the 2-2 draw under Benny, that really did feel like a defeat, to add salt in the wound Mickey Bell broke his leg and Ivan Testemitanu crocked his knee and hardly played again that season.
  12. Absolutely right (although it wasn't a winner, it felt like we lost it!). It should have been a free kick to us in our box and at least a yellow card for their forward. Pretty sure we would have seen the game out from that.
  13. Just wondered how these predictions were panning out? We must be about 13th now.... Hope you placed a bet on the National.
