  1. Bobby Reid song

    Next time I've had a couple before a game, I'm launching into a: "Oh when Bobby Reid goes Bob Bob bobbing along, along....sing up, sing up you ciderheads.....cheer up, cheer up the sun is red....oh when Bobby Reid goes....." etc, etc.
  2. Seeing is believing, spud. When we play like Saturday, LJ, or MA, need say nothing, there's no need for words, or promises, or platitudes, or corporate speak, or invitations to "trust me" and so on. "Our eyes had seen the glory of the coming to fruition of Lee Johnson, He has trampled out the garbage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He hath loosed the youngster Leko on the Derby back four, His truth is marching on......" That was a 90 minute, plus added time, performance, whereas last season we only ever managed 45 minutes at most (Derby away, for example).
  3. I do remember, spud, you saying, in the midst of the depths of last season's despair (), something like "I'd just like to see how he (LJ) copes" with the mess he had largely created. With avoiding relegation. And he did cope, in the end. Which seemed to amount to giving up on Tomlin, and swapping Jamie Mc for Pembo. You were prepared to go, with SL, down to the wire. See how he did. So fair play to you for that.
  4. Our leaky, porous defence.....

    ...second most breached in the Top 10. Not good enough. Sort it out Johnson. Please.
  5. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    Many of us under estimated LJ, but last season, LJ over estimated LJ - see Lee Tomlin. I reckon LJ coaching and managing younger players with everything ahead of them (say, Brownhill) or something to prove (like a Paterson) is what he is good at, like he did well at Oldham, and was getting going at Barnsley before he jumped ship. If the honest appraisal last season was LJ "I've ****ed up, bringing in Tomlin; I can't handle him." SL/MA "ok, put him on the bench, go back to what you are good at. We'll get rid of Tomlin in the summer" then we might be able to see and understand the seemingly illogical decision to stick by LJ. But of course, we rarely, if ever, get such honesty and openness; they couldn't, because they had to "get rid" of Tomlin, and so we had the press conference where we were told there was only sweetness and light behind the scenes. Its all a game, and we try and guess what tf is going on, and never know for sure when or if we are hot or cold in our estimates. And we do lose sight of the fact that we are always guessing, and have a tendency to forget that our opinions are opinions, not concrete facts. We are, after all, merely human.
  6. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    If we - from afar, or the outside - under estimated someone within football, then is it any surprise? We are in good company: Gary Lineker - tweeted his incredulity/doubt when Ranieri was appointed, and his outrage when he was sacked. Both good/correct decisions, with the benefit of hindsight (wtboh). Alan Hansen - you don't win anything with kids (listen up, LJ). Brian Clough - called that Polish keeper a "clown" in 1973. Chris Iwelumo and Ian Holloway - tipped Huddersfield to be relegated last season. Everyone in football - got Leicester wrong, the season they won it. The list goes on. The game is littered with such under estimations. Our excuse is that we do not have first-hand inside info about the game - we make, as SL put it last season "uninformed decisions" - whereas those inside the game get it wrong as much as us when they have "played the game" and "know the game." SL knows what goes on inside this club but still gets many of his "estimates" wrong. If he didn't, we'd be in the Premier League, or even the Europa League, at the moment. But every now and then, over the course of 15 plus years, one or two of his punts have to come off, or at least do better than his bad "estimates." Could be that this one works out well.
  7. Tactical moves that seem obvious in hindsight.

    I want to be ... Bobby Reid I want to be ... Bobby Reid, That's the most important thing to me And if I was ... Bobby Reid, If I was ... Bobby Reid, What a faithful, thankful girl I'd be Over to you now @Super, starting Tues night.....
  8. Bobby Reid Contract

    Frankie should. Might get him to keep his punts on the pitch. In fact, the lack of goals from City's keepers is a ****ing disgrace; when was the last (don't tell me it was Ray Cashley?)?
  9. Lee & Steve-Nice couple

    Thanks Steve. Thanks Lee. Credit to the two lads.
  10. Jamie Paterson

    "Forest reject, Forest reject".....bugger, 3:1. Time to head home. Bye bye Derby.
  11. Good player that Fracas, but yes, a latino hot-head for sure
  12. I must say, how thoroughly pleasurable, and joyous, it is this morning to come on here and be treated to a crying wolf, whinging about Bristol City and our fans, not seeing his team for the superiors they clearly are, and the point we undeservedly stole from them last night. Let's have more of this.
  13. Whether you believe in the manager or not...

    Rotated Paterson, Thatch. Rotated. Get with the programme/project, Thatch. This is a good year to be a City fan.
  14. Reasons to be positive

    Plenty to be cheerful about; we are hard to beat so far, being one. Very happy with this start. Well done all. Midtable, here we come/stay!
  15. Flint & Baker the best combo

    Such are the workings of the mind, with all its biases. I think we have much of OTIB here, in a nutshell. Me included. There truly is no point trying to convince the old chap otherwise, and I for one won't bother. Those first impressions - and the concrete, definitive conclusions we come to based upon them - are devilishly difficult to shake off, the more so for going so public with our convictions, so early on.
