  1. Caught in flagrante, eh? Was it the watch that gave him away or the bag of out of date crisps?
  2. John Atyeo from my earliest City days. For that era the complete No.9. Strong, honest & true ability. My all time fave. Shaun Taylor & Gerry Gow. Two blokes I'd have wanted in every City team I've watched since. Sweat blood for us. Tinman & Scotty, too. So many other good uns already mentioned. The sort of players who create an identity, Lee.
  3. On BBC LJ is quoted as saying if we'd pulled one back at 0-2 it would have been The Alamo at their end. That's the WBA goal in case you're wondering. Seems the bloke thinks can say whatever he likes & expect to get away with it. He's had plenty of practice, mind. The Alamo was a 10 day siege. Now I get it, 240 hours & we would have equalised....... or lost 15-1.
  4. What if you organised an anniversary party & no one turned up.........simply to avoid getting one a they shirts.

    I think the plan was "more of the same" last night, ie the formula that's achieved narrow wins with clean sheets. See what Brum have to offer. What they offered was a gift goal. Something unexpected, especially by LJ, a horrendous mistake that galvanised Brum & made them determined to make amends, which they did. After that goal, one minute gone, we looked lost & unable to cope. Despite some possession 2nd half we stayed shapeless & uncertain. It's been said before about LJ, here & at previous clubs, he hits on a formula, maybe by chance, goes with it until it suddenly falls apart. Last night another example.
  6. "Twenty's Plenty" "Twenty's Plenty" - coded message? Number of team changes. No, 18 max. The amount per week we'd be willing to pay Mr Wells. Number of points expected from next 7 games?? Yessssssss!
  7. When you could pop down the stairs, take a leak, buy a pie & still be back in your seat as he side footed the ball into the net.
  8. Is that the Famous Club rule? You do know Derby were once famous don't you? If that's escaped your notice I believe Bailey & Fam will have to carry the can.
  9. Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses (now reduced to about 6000) & if you could all stick a few bob in the beer mug being passed around I can get a new watch, sorry player
  10. Get the message out there. Every Poster Purpled! The very best £5 ever.
  11. Quite possibly some truth in what you say UTC. However, do you not think some of this comes from LJ's approach? Pretty common view on here that he over complicates, doesn't get the shape/tactics quite right, has to change it mid-game. I think that encourages unease amongst the fans. Square pegs in round holes out on the pitch. Paranoia, if you like, though every opponent is "out to get us" & nick the points. Nature of football everywhere that games are often won by only a single goal & the crowd will be on edge. Food for thought?
  12. Ben Garner, if he lands the plum job, was working in India with Coppell, it seems. Can't decide if that makes him Agent Garner or the bloke to avenge whatever went wrong with Copps & finally put the Gas in their rightful place above us. Or maybe he became interested in saving endangered species in India. Certainly some scope at the Mem. Those crisps for a start.
  13. Disgusting item he is. What's the theory? Do his community service at the Mem. Cheap option.
  14. This debate has got me thinking & comparing City to the rugby, the Bears. They sit 2nd in their Prem. Not comparing like with like because promotion from rugby's Champ to Prem is undoubtedly simpler. Much less competition, less money being thrown around etc. SL has obviously put money into it & we may have a Prem rugby title in the not too distant. Pat Lam was brought in. International player, played in World Cups, coached in NZ. Bit of a contrast to LJ. Not knocking what LJ has achieved here given that he's had to abide by the develop, sell, unearth & develop new stars policy but at what point does SL decide that to reach the football Prem he has to find a "Pat Lam" to achieve it? Not saying I know who that coach would be & for those having to find him an unenviable task with no guarantees. However, to me it's looking increasingly likely that SL will need to make a decision if he genuinely wants Prem football.
