  1. From 55% possession, compared to Readings 45%.
  2. QPR mate was devastated when we signed him- adamant he was/is an outstanding goal scorer. Maybe, maybe not, but we seem to have a track record of failing to get the best out of promising players.
  3. Low fee agreed to allow deal to happen. Joe’s been at City for 11 years, so I’m sure the club felt an obligation. Anyway, if another club had offered more..
  4. According to Coleman England are looking nervous and disjointed, Calvert Lewis is isolated and Wales are controlling the tempo. Thank God for that.
  5. What I remember of the game in the blizzard is the continuous traffic updates over the tannoy. By half time, literally all the roads going north were closed, news that was greeted with a huge cheer by the City fans.
  6. Lots of neat, short passes. Lots of neat triangles. Dominate possession. But no player capable of dribbling past an opponent. No chance of a long, defence splitting pass. Very modern. Very dull. And what’s happened to our set pieces?
  7. Well, I was there in the 70’s for the famous midweek game when the attendance was either 36 or 38,000, depending on which report you prefer. And I recall people occupying every bit of discovered space- they were about 3 deep on the Dolman steps. Meanwhile, God I miss the old Gate. It’s remembering the railings in front of the enclosure ( which as a nipper I used to hook my arms around) that brings a tear to the eye.
  8. Betting the farm on Moore, Walsh and Morrell. Desperately want them to step up, but what if they don’t. Record since Brownhill left was pretty poor. Then take away Fammy, Korey and Eliasson. With no notable additions and a rookie manager. Gamble doesn’t begin to describe it. My only prediction is that by the end of the season Ashton will be picking up a huge bonus or his P45.
  9. So, a new ‘Covid’ period of financial reality/ austerity beckons, one which, to my mind, is more likely to lead to the risk of relegation than the chance of promotion. Ultimately, I get it - it’s easy, after all, to spend other people’s money. Just profoundly sad that the only manager that SL ( or indeed the club) has backed seriously in the transfer market was possibly the one least likely to make it count. Not being able to allow someone like Hughton the chance to spend half the sums given to LJ is just agonising. I’m sure that City fans in 30 years time will look back and groan at the oppor
  10. Having taken almost 6 weeks to make an internal appointment, for G MacG to use a the phrase “another busy day in BS3” is simply hilarious. I like the idea of a good, honest young chap making his way in journalism, but boy does he need to look up ‘oxymoron’.
  11. I gather that it is unlikely that any vaccine will be authorised without a full stage 3 trial. The Oxford vaccine- which everyone seems to think is the best chance- is in stage 3, but this is not due to complete until next Spring at the earliest. On the plus side, the government is financing production now, before authorisation, which means that it should be immediately available when it is authorised. And I’m over 50, which means that most of you can form a queue!
  12. Love the Bristol Posts “City embarking on a new chapter” angle. Do they realise how ironic that sounds, when it seems like we’re doomed to re- read Chapter 1 ad infinitum.
  13. MacGregor saying “finances a big factor “, So he is, literally, the cheap option.
  14. Beginning to think that the identity of the new boss is irrelevant, compared to the question of timing. The imperative, in other words, is to allow whoever it is to say plausibly: “ Don’t judge me until I’ve had 3 windows and a full pre- season with the lads”.
  15. That’s a much more attractive argument to someone who’s not 55, overweight and with an established wheeze, like me!
