  1. Fifty Reasons To Beat Fulham

    Thanks for all your best wishes I've had a great day. City displayed great mental strength tonight to compete with the Championship's form team and a safe bet for the play-offs. It was a hard fought draw that could easily have been a win, but for some poor final balls in the final third. Nevertheless I reckon we need 8 wins from our final 13, or 78-80 points in real terms. There's enough quality in this squad to see us through, once those diamonds have a little polish. Good night and god bless you all.
  2. Hull the new Blackpool?

    He's shut that door and joined Bradford City.
  3. Fifty Reasons To Beat Fulham

    How about loud and hostile, then even louder with a bit more hostile?
  4. Fifty Reasons To Beat Fulham

    Many thanks. Unfortunately, I'm driving straight from work and it's soda water only. It's the kick-ass lifestyle, don't you know.
  5. Fifty Reasons To Beat Fulham

    Well, it is my half century today. Here's to LJ and his talented squad who have packed in more thrills and exciting football in two thirds of the campaign than generations of their predecessors. And here's to us; the best supporters in the world who have been blessed with a wonderful season thus far, despite our recent hiccups. Stay strong, we have the mental strength to really achieve. City for the play-offs, always believe.
  6. End of Promotion as we know it...and I'm feeling fine

    A bit early for the eulogy Vicar. City can still secure a play-off place if the head coach and players can rediscover the mental strength that saw us reach second place despite having to play the same first eleven, twice a week, relentlessly. It needs greater character from the players and better use of the subs bench from LJ. But they need to go through that pain barrier once again and earn those wins. We're good enough and I've no doubt that we can do it.
  7. Interesting talk at Senior Reds today

    Well, he knows his plaice.
  8. OTIB 'get together'....

    Ah, the Pumphouse, hosted by the world's angriest Landlord. And woe betide anyone who ordered a pint of Guinness last in a long round. His face! It was like waiting for Vesuvius to erupt.
  9. Free travel for Fulham fans

    No. The horse was lame. The fans complained, but they had to shut their trap.
  10. Leeds manager sacked!

    They've given him the red card!
  11. lack of quality in front of goal

    Unfortunately those are City's only two goals in our last five League games. Diedhiou still needs games to be fully sharp and we have missed a number of presentable chances recently. Paterson against Derby and Reid versus Bolton, the latter during a goalmouth scramble when it looked easier to score come to mind. On the plus side we are still creating chances, but need to be more direct at times in the final third. Hopefully we'll see Diony get on the scoresheet soon.
  12. The first potential double double relegation?

    Sorry RRH, but Wigan weren't relegated in consecutive seasons. Despite dropping out of the Premier League in 2012/13 following their FA Cup triumph against Man City, the Latics returned to Wembley the following season as a Championship side in the Semi Final, losing to Arsenal on penalties. Sadly, they couldn't return for the Play-Off Final after QPR sneaked past them over two legs.
  13. Red Cards

    Yes. He was sent off following our Shawn's 89th minute winner. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/reason-samuel-saiz-sent-leeds-14123699
  14. Red Cards

    Leeds are racking up a card collection to rival Clintons. Seven reds! http://www.skysports.com/leeds-united-stats
  15. Will we get playoffs?

    I've no doubt we have the quality to make the playoffs, but we need to drastically address our lack of goals. Just 2 scored against QPR in the last 5 Championship games. LJ mentioned after the loss to Norwich that we were trying to score the perfect goal. Implying overplay in the final third. To an extent we're still trying to do it, despite the return of Diedhiou, who should be punching holes in opposition defences for Reid to score - when fully fit. He's not there yet. And therein lies the problem, we were in an automatic promotion place before the Wolves game, but with the squad stretched to breaking point by injuries and a relentless fixture list. In hindsight maintaining that level was unsustainable. However, I've no doubt that post-Dubai, the sharpness will return and with a little more directness in our play and composure in front of goal City will reap their rewards.
