  1. Next signing is the Poland womens national captain and keeper Katarzyna Kiedrzynek.
  2. These games are not pointless, certainly not the Hallen game which sees City give back to the local community. The real point however is that most of pre-season is about fitness, bonding of new players and experimention of styles and systems leading to the final game (this year Palace) when you hope things have come together. It doesn't do to drive yourself into the ground and possibly lower confidence by playing teams we may not be ready for prior to the start of the season. Leeds, a team who see themselves not only in the Premier league but as serious contenders within it, got totally smashed by Man Utd the other night. Let's see if that sets them back.
  3. You're right. Safe standing across the entire South Stand is not viable at present as (a) you would need to displace too many people (b) I'm not convinced there's enough demand to fill the entire stand. The only viable areas at present are an extended s82 in the South Stand or the entire Atyeo (debate as to whether you displace the away support or allow them some limited safe standing).
  4. Great interview with a vastly underrated player who could be guaranteed to turn out a 7/10 minimum performance in every game he played. I knew that of the Ashton Gate 8 he was hit hard (probably the hardest) to the extent that it cost he and his wife their business, but I didn't know that it actually cost him his house and that he was declared bankrupt. No wonder it left a bitter taste and that we didn't see Trevor at players gatherings for a while.
  5. I'm beginning to think that there needs to be an In-depth study into football finances in the UK, to include the application of due diligence and the consistent application of TV revenues, FFP etc. As I wouldn't trust any of the current football authorities to do so, and as football clubs are important part of local communities, it should be undertaken independently by, perhaps, the national audit office with potential assistance by the SFO.
  6. This, and the earlier post by Billy wedlock, are spot on. Both Webster and Kalas are more accomplished footballers than Flint but you could never deny his contribution to City's rise or his willingness to put his body on the line for the cause. He wasn't a cult hero for nothing, and his goal contribution was second to none from a centre back. Not the least because around half of his goals were not scored with the head but included volleys, half volleys, scissor kicks and back heels.
  7. I'd like to see Conor pick up a loan at Newport and play regularly there. I like the lad, composed on the ball, and could have a decent career.
  8. I wouldn't say Bruce has done nothing in the game, he's won 4 promotions, but I would agree he's not in Benitez class. Individuals on here may not like Rafa but he is widely regarded as a top manager. The problems at Newcastle were not Rafa but Ashley related.
  9. Not just pre season fixtures, let's be honest the City website is rubbish compared to what it used to be. It used to be full of interesting stuff. If City took a bunch of kids to an overseas tournament there would be a daily report on not just the games but the experience too. Now, the OS didn't even provide a report on which players, especially the young players who travelled to Florida. Any news is 3-4 days behind what you might find on the Bristol Post site or on OTIB.
  10. According to LJ its a dead leg. Nothing to worry about but will rest up for 6/7 days and won't face Sarasota later this, week.
  11. He's a winner, he can beat it. All the best Sinisa.
  12. Does anyone know how many shots he had and therefore what his ratio was. Of the top 10 strikers in Europe last season was Mauro Icardi at 3.48 shots per goal. Ronaldo was at 6.85 shots per goal, Harry Lane was at 6.13, Messi at 5.79 and Suarez and Salah at 4.84 and 4.5 respectively. https://www.planetfootball.com/quick-reads/comparing-the-conversion-rate-of-the-top-10-scorers-in-europe/
  13. I’d also like to see the return of the Away Days feature which they failed to keep up last year.
  14. I have managed to access both now, not that there’s any action, but the superior Rams Tv at least has decent audio and chat.
