  1. Ermmm.....you’re kinda missing my point............
  2. Tony ‘tap in’ Thorpe scored over 50 goals for City as did Scott Murray and Shaun Goater
  3. Well......I do get your point but Kalas, Dasilva, Hunt.....et el were also on the pitch..............
  4. Lee Johnson was in the team ‘ his dad was manager - nepotism. LJ himself knew that and largely why he wanted to go on loan and prove to himself that he good enough to get into other teams. SL has done exactly the same with his son who is now chairman. Would Jon Lansdown job a chairmans position at any other football club? No doubt that SL likes both GJ and LJ as people and that had to be a massive factor in LJ getting the job. It seems that getting along with your football clubs senior employees is important to SL.
  5. I didn’t hear anything that was particularly new. Same kind of sound bite you’d hear from an owner. One thing he did say tho that I pleased to hear was “a breath of fresh air”. Hopefully that means exactly what the sentence literally means.
  6. That’s not quite true. Nahki Wells had a couple of decent chances last night. His Championship goal scoring record shows that he knows where the net is. Under LJ it’s been the midfield creativity that’s been missing.
  7. I’m not sure who makes the decision about players going out on loan but I assume that until recently it was down to the coaching team with LJ making the final call. In the past I’ve certainly questioned LJs ability to asses what a player needs in terms of development and I wonder if it was really necessary for Moore to have so many loans and also Vyner who ended up in the Mickey Mouse league until he injured his shoulder and Aberdeen sent him back. That said at City there are no competitive league games available outside of the first team so in that regard loans are essential for th
  8. Like lots of players Pato can be inconsistent and currently he’s playing well but you never can tell how long his decent form with last.
  9. And that’s exactly why these guys go out on loan. Vyner spent a season as regular starter at Rotherham and then at Aberdeen until he got injured. He’s now in the first team squad. Moore was on loan at Southend and I forget where else. He seemed to constantly on the move! Walsh on loan at Coventry, Morrell at Lincoln all gaining valuable experience to competitive league football. They're all back in the fold at Failand and with LJ gone hopefully the new man eyes will see past the limitations that LJ must have seen............
  10. I’m in the opposite camp to you Bas......Im glad that the club Is free of the miasma created by the Johnsons. Time now for a refreshing change and to see some exciting and attacking play at long last,
  11. The lag is 35secs on my iPad.
  12. Pretty much what’s expected............
  13. The Four Tops were a truly great Motown group and ‘simple game’ is an absolute favourite of mine. The baritone voice of Levi Stubbs really comes thru in that particular song - covered by the Moody Blues amongst others.
  14. LJ losing his better players pretty much every window was something I mentioned on here in the context of despite that he was doing a decent enough job ‘with one hand tied behind his back’ However it was pointed out to me that many, if not all Championship managers lose players on a regular basis yet still manage to do well. Brentford were used as one example. That wasn’t something I’d considered...............
