  1. Work colleague of mine is an away season ticket holder for Wolves of which they have 1600! He says Wolves have been arguing with City over the allocation wanting 3,600 but they have only been given 3,200 because of segregation requirements. I personally am waiting in eager anticipation for the announcement of the away fan numbers as part of the overall attendance on Sunday.
  2. I actually sang Andi Weimann when everyone was singing Mo Eisa as we haven't sung about him once yet (that I've heard in the 3 matches I've attended) despite 4 goals and generally very good performances and Mo Eisa has done nothing yet expect come off the bench and run around for a couple of minutes If i was Andi i'd be feeling a bit sorry for myself or alternatively asking what the **** more do i need to do to get an Andi Weimann chant going
  3. anything actually happening...other than the bitching and moaning. I'm stuck in a hotel in Luton where i can confirm the town centre Wetherspoons is the burning beacon of hope in this god foresaken hole. I'm not getting much of a sense of feeling for what's happening in the game reading the matchday thread...
  4. I think it's good business. I've emailed MA/LJ having identified 3 potential wingers, who with the signing of all 3, will bring depth and balance to the squad, thus spending the £17m or whatever is shrewdly...
  5. Yes it makes perfect sense and looks wonderful on paper and on the Lee Johnson coaching board, pity the reality for us is totally different. None of our players want it out from the back (Fielding or the CB's), or are at least looking to do something positive with it, so after a few ineffective sideways and backwards passes we inevitably knock it long, if we do win the header the opposition win it back as no-one is taking a risk, or making the commitment to go beyond the man, looking for that knock on. I'm excepting BR from that comment, he can't however, no matter how hard he tries, be everywhere, covering for everyone. The answer to the "questions" is therefore - send one man to attack the ball and they will knock it long, we (the opposition) pick up the pieces and we go again. My frustration is i get exactly what you are saying it just seems to me that we don't execute it and invariably knock it long thereby wiping out your reasoning for why we adopt the tactic in the first place
  6. The point about Frankie being superb reactively but poor when he has time to think is spot on. His distribution is generally poor however it is among several issues we now have when he has the ball to distribute. Frankie's accuracy of kick is inadequate and whilst some people say this isn't a big issue in my opinion it has cost us goals and momentum. Against Sunderland in the second half his distribution was poor and I'm pretty sure led to at least one goal when he gave it straight back to them from a poor kick He is very slow to distribute and this sucks the momentum out of any opportunity to break fast However to off set this Our defenders are far too deep to receive balls(particularly from goal kicks), Flint comes parallel with the 6 yard box, what else is he going to do other than hoof it long or play risky sideways passes to Baker that again sucks any momentum out of moving it quickly and ultimately ends in us being closed down or sending a long aimless ball when the opposition have reset. I simply do not understand this tactic We have a number of players who are scared and don't want the ball - I'm going to pick on a couple of players here based on my observations - Brownhill - he simply does not want the ball from Frankie he runs with with his back to Frankie or he, like Patterson, tracks an opposing player to ensure that he can't receive the ball. To be fair though i don't really think any of our midfield want it at the moment We therefore seem to be in a vicious cycle of having a keeper who isn't the greatest distributor, supported by teammates who in effect offer him no options other than to slow it down and play a long, ineffective, inaccurate pass or slow it down and play a short ineffective pass that results in general in a long ineffective pass. Bloody hell i feel depressed.
  7. I'm really interested to read this thread, because i have become very frustrated with the atmosphere at AG this season. Don't get me wrong there have been a few cracking games, atmosphere wise, but far to few I don't post very often, am not a gashead, but do read the forum regularly. I am a CIty fan and love City My son and i moved to the Dolman this season after testing out the Lansdown last season next to the what i currently call the "standing, generally non singing section". My son wanted to sit there to be part of the atmosphere and i was happy to do so as i will join in a lot of the songs and used to love being on the East End back in the day, I'm still recovering from the injuries after Donawa's goal! There a number of fans in the standing section who do sing, i like the new song the guy with the megaphone sings (being old i still mistime the Uh's) and him and a number of people around him are always having a go at trying at building atmosphere and getting the singing going. If i was them after the last few games in particular i would be feeling really frustrated at the lack of backing as i reckon at best at a lot of times only 50 or so people are singing. In general i look at that section and the people in there and think - Why are you in there? Your stood chatting to your mates, chewing your nails, scratching your arse generally doing anything but singing. For me if you are in there you should be walking out of there unable to speak for three days, that is your absolute responsibility if you are in there in my opinion. We all have a responsibility to back the team and actually for me on Saturday the 2 loudest songs were started by other sections of the SS. So we can talk about prices, section 82, the injustice of Bristol Sport but actually do me a favour and do what your responsibility for having a ticket in that section demands and please for the love of God sing before you start bitching and moaning about everything else that is "wrong" with our club
  8. Totally agree. I am pretty sure against both Sunderland and Leeds he had opportunities to release players one on one and cocked up the pass at stages which would have put us 4 and 3 goals clear. That said after 60 mins against Sunderland it was clear he was shattered and walking around in a 10 metre circle. If i could see that........ Do i think he is good enough? Probably no
  9. Totally agree, what is the point in bringing Engvall on with 4 mins to go. I dont know if Engvall is good enough but he has never been given a real chance, at least 20 mins would have given us an opportunity to see what hes got
