  1. Pearson seems to be very careful about what he is saying which makes his responses very slow - however I heard Chris Hughton talking on the radio last week and he really is boring with a capital B.
  2. I suppose it is better to see small clubs coming up as they are more likely to perform poorly in the Championship but hoping that we might actually be able to see a live game with a full house I'd rather see those clubs with decent support at AG. Sunderland fans are a bit mad and the likes of Pompey, Plymouth etc would provide a bit of atmosphere.
  3. I think it is in midfield that we are losing out on 50:50 aerial balls - HNM hardly wins anything in the air. We need another Marvin Elliott style player with more physical presence. Bakinson looked like he might be that player but has gone well off the boil. recently Nagy not strong enough either nor Lansbury
  4. Maybe Pearson doesn't want to stay ? He had long Covid and may not feel up to the task physically given the amount of dead wood that will need to be replaced. That might be why a short term contract was agreed. Sensible for SL to have an alternative strategy if NP doesn't want to carry on.
  5. But most of these are hardly pulling up trees for their new clubs - maybe excepting Ayling and Webster. Reid and Bryan are hardly ever selected for Fulham. Kelly looks promising but not worth the fee we got. The others are on the downward slope of their careers although I would have Flint back as we are aerially weak.
  6. Yes Leicester Training Ground looks great - but it's in Leicester which is shitehole.
  7. Despite being hit on the head by a bucket thrown from the home stand on the way out in '91, I still wish them well.
  8. The change in the goal kick law has also made teams play more short passes from the back. As others have said this is dangerous and frustrating if the opposition are pressing closely and it also relies in defenders having good technique (see Man City) . Hoofing the ball up the pitch is very often the answer - it does depend on who the target man is - Chris Martin for example is much better than Fammy at winning such balls and holding onto them. The long ball to the space in the corners is more effective in my view if you have players with pace eg Semenyo / Wells and we don't do enou
  9. Indeed. And if the extra 8000 fans each buy (say) a coffee and a Mars bar at each match that's about £80 more revenue (£4 x 20) which equates to the higher ticket price (£250 minus £170).
  10. Ayling nowhere near international standard in my opinion. Useful player going forward but not strong enough defensively ( much like the Leeds team). Best defender for City for me is Caulker and he was capped although then went off the rails. Webster similar style was also good.
  11. It's time to dump on-line gambling companies from football. They are insidious and I have never bought a City shirt since they stared being sponsored by gambling firms. Also irritating the amount of gambling adverts on Sky Sports. I am not against gambling per se and have the odd flutter on the Grand National and do the Lotto but all this on-line bingo and other apps just preys on gullible people.
  12. Big girl's blouse as we used to say. And why do you need to wear gloves unless it's actually snowing?
  13. You missed the strong possibility that they will be replaced by Swindon and Gas Rovers being relegated. Maybe that's karma.
  14. Rings a vague bell - mind you I couldn't name a single Rovers player of today. I do know they have that scouse nutjob as manager.
  15. Who's the gashead? - I'm thinking Frankie Prince but not sure.
