  1. It wasn’t rose tinted at all. I mentioned clearly it isn’t the best season to be sellers. That said it is still a level playing field and the fees will reflect that across the world. Nowhere did I say we will make a large amount in the window. Just that we have players we will get decent fees for even if they aren’t what we are used to. The players in the final year I mentioned are just examples of maybe shifting wages. Not all of them obviously but even one leaving frees up a large chunk of wages to be put towards a free transfer or loan. I don’t think we are a team that needs 4-5 to have a c
  2. I am with you to an extent but there are plenty of saleable assets in this squad. Not a good year to be sellers but if we needed to raise some funds I am sure we could/will. Eliasson and Fam I think are likely to go. Even if we sell Fam for less than we bought it will show as profit as his contract has a season left. Players like Adelakun, Szmodics and Bakinson can raise some funds and be off the wage bill. Also players like Baker, Hunt and Weimann are in their final years so could be easier to move. It is not a perfect situation, especially season 1, but there is a solid y
  3. I don’t get the vitriol towards Ashton. Maybe those that dislike him will be proven right but in my eyes he has done almost everything right that I’d expect from him. I will say recruitment has been scattergun. I will also say we have been left short in some positions once or twice with late sales. That said we have gotten a lot right under him as well. He has secured some amazing deals for us and negotiated some large deals. I think the next manager/head coach will tell us a lot more about Ashton.
  4. It is a tough one. Hughton and Jokanovic the best two options for instant success. Do not seem like the hirings the club would make though. But my vote is Jokanovic. Promotions and good football. I like Mick McCarthy. Think we could go either way under him though. Doesn’t seem like a great fit. Ainsworth is more the kind the club would pursue. Done a very good job at Wycombe. He’d be my choice if we aren’t attracting top names. A lot on the list in job and good jobs some of them. Wagner is one and may relish the opportunity to do well in England again. Think maybe
  5. What to be a bit more like Brentford who spend similar or less and have smaller attendances yet play some of the best football in the division under a manager few had heard of before he took over? I think that expectation is fair It was probably mostly the fact we avoided a relegation battle but the most talked about city team on here is when we had the cup run. We pressed, we played attacking football and we were solid at simple things like set pieces. We finished 11th. Disappointing sure but if we were sitting in 12th and had some fun at AG I think a few more would be willing to
  6. For as much as I have grown to dislike him he helped this club through a massive rebuild and transition. Helped stabilise us after Cotterill, had rocky times but kept us safe another season, gave us an amazing season where it fizzled out but understandably so and got us to 70 points in the championship. All this while behind the scenes we were renovating AG, working towards upgrading the academy and training facilities and working through new philosophies. It is overdue him leaving this position but imo he helped get us to this level of expectation. Deserves our thanks. Cheers LJ
  7. Just cancel your direct debit take the loss on this month. I am considering it and I pay for two!
  8. Was that to LJ? Thought he may have been joking with his bench but even funnier if to LJ
  9. I say similar things but I couldn’t help but get a little excited when Wells made it 2-1. I want LJ gone but city doing well brings me joy so not sure I can bring myself to hope we lose no matter the coach/manager

    Promotion

    He did that long before the time off
  11. I don’t get why he can’t put our 11 best footballers on the pitch or something close to it. There were at least 2 on the bench that should have been starting. Williams, Afobe and Dasilva all in that category. Think Rowe would have offered more in midfield. LJ knows a more than me but imo he isn’t a manager or head coach. He may be amazing on non match days. Hell I will say that is probable but he fails the club, players and us every match day. Us being top 10 was basically down to individual moments. A brownhill screamer, an Eliasson cross or a bentley save. We have not look assured
  12. A lot of people assuming we can just pick up the season in a month and finish it off like it never happened. Few things wrong with that thinking. Firstly, I believe there is almost no chance football just starts again on that day in April. Best case is cases are dying down so they wait another couple of weeks. Second, even a month back will have serious logistical issues. Season due to end May 3rd. So now looking at early June at minimum. The transfer window will be open by then and many teams won’t know their competitions for the next season. Third, the Euros isn’t ju
  13. I get what you are saying but there have been other events cancelled/postponed. Also, it seems like football is taking these measures rather than being told to do so. Maybe advised but football attracts hundreds of thousands to gather every weekend around the country. Not sure any other events can claim that.
  14. One of the leagues best players tested positive. They will take that very seriously. Been talking about behind closed doors for awhile. Sad it takes someone getting it to spark action. As much as I would hate it, they need to suspend/behind closed door football immediately. Also, it doesn’t seem a major illness for the most part but it wouldn't be fair to spread it to those that it would effect the worst.
  15. Well he was a welcome surprise those few games where I thought he done well. That said take a lot to replace O’Dowda after his showing against Fulham. He isn’t ahead of Eliasson either. Those two plus Paterson who has played well. Though think he suits playing with Eliasson as he will attack back post and be a goal threat
