  1. Exactly how I feel. After 70 years, I cannot see any future with the current Coaching staff. So sad, as we have or are building the infrastructure of a Premier League club. What a waste of money. If only Pat Lam was the City Head Coach!
  2. That could be very possible. A couple of years ago, I saw him in under 23 game v The Gas. Gas are still long ball only and it was amazing that City became a long ball side as well. I think he touched the ball about 6 to 8 times as most of the time it passed him in the air.
  3. Doubtful. Dull and unentertaining home form again for second year.
  4. I went with some mates from work. Parked in an industrial estate, when we got to Hawthorns pub it was heaving with red and white. On of the mates, got on his hands and knees, crawled through the mass and returned a couple of minutes later with four pints. Incredible! As for the game we got a lead just before halftime when Sweeney scored. The second half was a total siege of the goal at the Brummie Road end. They hit us with everything, we led a charmed life and held on for one of the biggest smash and grab since time began. And nearly did the same at Roker Park a couple of weeks later but they grabbed an equaliser in injury time. What a season.
  5. One of the great goalkeepers of my lifetime has died aged 87. A hero at Munich as he pulled survivors out of the plane with the Man U coming back from a European Cup game. My best memory was with Doncaster Rovers at Ashton Gate. John Atyeo strode past Charlie Williams, later to be a top comedian, and hammered from thirty yards, an unstoppable shot past Gregg. Harry stood there and clapped Atyeo. A top footballer and a top person. RIP and thanks for the memories.
  6. Add Wolves to the list. Last away win centenary in 2031. And we haven't had many at home either.
  7. You could add a few more clubs, Birmingham City for example.
  8. Johnson does come out with a load of bollocks at times.
  9. They are not allowed to think for themselves. Try anything that isn't within the list of can do by LJ, and you are persona non Grata for a while. No room for maverick footballers these days.
  10. O'Dowda is very good at game management! How do you come to that conclusion? I would really like to know, please. @Charlie BCFC
  11. When we played Argyle in the old days, both keepers wore blue. The colours allowed by the Football League were green, red, blue and white. But did not see a keeper wearing white until Shilton did for Leicester about early to mid 1970's. Yellow was for internationals only. Nowadays, I'm amazed at the colours goalkeepers are allowed to wear that are so close to their own team colours.
  12. Welcome back Bobby Madley. You have served a rather undeserved sentence for a private joke. I doubt you are the only one who has made such a mistake and in many cases, the politically correct response is well over the top. So, again, welcome back you bxxxxxx in the black or pink or any other colour that you refs now wear!
  13. The "one for the team" foul has been around since the game started. In my young days, we had Ginger Peacock and Dennis Roberts as one's who were well known for them. And while the legendary Gerry Gow was a much better footballer than many realized, he along with such as Gerry Sweeney, were not averse to ensuring attackers didn't get close enough to goal, if they could do anything to stop them. Someone needs to coach the Eliassons and Callums about the dark arts!
