  1. Is it me or have we also had an unlucky history of loan players getting badly injured shortly after joining us - remember a German striker on his debut I think and a few others? Not saying there is anything more than bad luck behind it of course.
  2. Sky just don’t get it do they? https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2019/aug/27/david-squires-on-bolton-bury-and-the-threat-to-our-football-clubs

    I’ve said in the past that the thing that qpeople don’t realise unless they are old enough about seeing Jackie play for us for the first time was the astonishment that a player of his talent was actually at City. “He might as well be from a different planet”. For the first time since I’m beginning to feel that again.
  4. Didn’t see Rowe play, but listening to him just now on RB you can understand one reason why he was brought in. Great attitude, bright and intelligent and would appear to be a leader.
  5. I think that you might be surprised. He’s the one that I think they will give most time to settle in and see as a long term prospect. He’s very young, looks a bit slight and I doubt will cope with a full season so they will break him in gently. I wonder whether he will be the most expensive player outside of the Premier to play U23s?! Think we will all need to be patient with him although I can’t wait to see him play. The others are older and have more first team games under their belts.
  6. Something definitely odd about this but what a time to be a City fan!
  7. I’ve not seen him yet so this might be a daft suggestion, but could Rowe fill the role until Korey is back?
  8. Was a great player for us - a fully committed, ever present with a really good injury and disciplinary record for a defender and also got more than his fair share number of goals. But we’ve upgraded significantly since he left and he doesn’t fit with the style of play we want to achieve now. In retrospect it was a good move all round when he left for Boro.
  9. Rumour today that Man U are after John McGinn for £50m. If true then Villa will have a lot of money in their hands. Bad for more likely losing Webster but good for extracting the best possible price.
  10. Clarke looks like he’s a really good player from what I’ve seen. O’Dowda replacing him seems a logical step.
  11. I hate VAR. However, isn’t the simplest solution for it to be down to the officials on the pitch to decide whether to use it. I think that that is how it works in rugby and it seems far less intrusive there? The womens games have been refreshing - seem to be more open, free flowing and less cynical than the men’s game.
  12. That was a really good listen. Thanks. My suggestion would be Terry Cooper - hed have lots to say (Leeds in the 70s, England etc even before managing City at its lowest ebb - which involved more than just coaching and picking the team). I don’t think younger fans necessarily realise how much we have to thank him for even now. He took a club absolutely on its knees, kept it going and set it on the right course up the league.
  13. And heard good things of young Robert Stambolziev too. Any news on him?
  14. I’d like West Brom to win this but does anyone know if we would we get any extra money on the Kodjia sale if Villa are promoted?
  15. An absolutely terrible day. I recall hearing about it on the radio which was just shocking and then the news came through that a 15 year old boy had also been killed at St Andrews when a wall fell on him which made it even worse. I think that Valley Parade disaster is probably less well remembered as Heysel then happened a few weeks later. What a terrible year for football. I understand why people bemoan the commercialisation of football and how it has been sanitised to an extent. But the poor conditions at many grounds, the violence on occasions and the treatment that fans often had to put up with in the 80s were terrible. Watching football now at somewhere like Ashton Gate nowadays is a world apart from how things were then and it’s absolutely for the better . More than just being treated with respect as a paying “customer” and being able to enjoy a decent environment, nobody should be putting their safety at risk when they go to a match. RIP those who died doing what we all love to do - just enjoying a Saturday out watching their team.
