  1. Absolutely. It's like they suddenly discovered a surprise candidate called Holden who was the best man for the job. He was there all along. If this had happened over at the gas we'd have taken the piss.
  2. I think occasionally LJ got the recipe right and it showed in performances but the following week he forgot what the formula was and had to chop and change. Personally it's a shame all around because I think he wanted nothing more than seeing City successful but the lack of consistency after having years to impose his DNA on the club was too much and it was right that he had to go.
  3. And penalty abbreviated to "pen". Pundits do this a lot. Saying "penalty" is hardly a hardship FFS.
  4. "Wake up sheeple". Typically written by really stupid people on conspiracy theory websites but I've read it on OTIB too, most likely also written by stupid people on OTIB who fancy themselves as possessing super intelligence and insight. Also, it's already been mentioned but a pet peeve is "can I get" and starting a sentence with "So". Both vile americanisms.
  5. Jeez! The interview posted from the OP is not exactly a confidence builder. ‘Four defeats in five, can you put your finger on why that is?’ ’Well, I’m not a great believer in looking at the past’. Why is it that positivity wonks always spout the "not looking at the past" BS. I think what they mean is, "learn from the past but not dwell on the past". You'll learn shit unless you look and acknowledge the past. I'm sure he's a lovely chap but I'm really not feeling anything from this appointment.
  6. I think you might be on to something. City might just go into a holding pattern. We might be a bit chaotic and shit, have a rookie manager but we probably won't be as shit as a lot of other clubs in the championship. Many football clubs have been on a knife-edge financially for years. They simply don't have the capacity to survive. Looking at the longer term picture with these youth coaches coming in and we might be in a semi-decent place when we return to the days of being able to snog complete strangers in a pub without the chance of dying as a result.
  7. I’ve certainly no personal issue with Holden but the way the club handled the process since LJ left just comes across as speculative, cheap and amateurish at best.
  8. What an embarrassing shit show. DH needs the weekend to think about! WTF! DH must be thinking, "so I've either got a job as coach at a championship club or I've no other offers and as I've proven nothing in football I'm unlikely to ever get a better offer. If I'm honest I'm as culpable as LJ was and he was fired". This is more a case of who would work as Ashton's puppet. DH is probably the only one that would. I've no axe to grind with DH but seriously this is uninspiring. I no longer have any confidence in the club.

    I'd give him a rolling contract but only a couple of months at a time. His ability can't be questioned but his attitude is the problem.
  10. Can’t think of anything off the top of my head that I’d want overturned but quite some time back Tony Thorpe was awarded a penalty for us at home. All players and everyone in the ground , including Thorpe were baffled. Fans were turning to each other to ask what was going. I’d love to replay it to the ref and ask him to clarify what he thought he saw that nobody else did.
  11. I’ve just read the thread about Trolls on OTIB and have just read this thread. I’m guessing that the OP on the Trolls thread may have been including this thread in his/her point. Some of the comments on this thread are simply staggering and embarrassing for the usual good nature of OTIB.
  12. I don't think they're internet trolls in the classic sense of internet troll but more just socially inept and heroes behind a screen. As Major stated it's symptomatic of modern day society. I'm probably old enough to consider, "would I say that to that person's face" before I reply to some comments. I commented on it about a month ago, in that the level of rudeness on here has reached a new high. As for a clique, there are one or two posters on here that seem to reference each other on a regular basis with "in" jokes that nobody else probably understands. It's not rare to see the same beh
  13. Seriously? We are very close to automatic promotion and the manager of the last four + seasons should be sacked? That sounds crazy. Would you prefer mid table or relegation zone but entertaining football? I completely agree that the football at AG over Johnson’s reign has been dire. Over last 25 years I’ve had a few seasons without season tickets. All those seasons were while Johnson junior and Johnson senior were managers. I admit I’m not a diehard but I’ve been there renewing my season ticket when times were tough. Ultimately I want to be entertained for my money. It’s not entertainment
