  1. Isn't there meant to be some fit and proper checks before allowing someone to control a professional football club? Surely with proper checks concerns would've been raised to prevent this situation?
  2. Yep, something else City can't get right
  3. My first football shirt was a hand me down Liverpool Hitachi shirt from the late 70s I think. the first football shirt my parents bought me was the 1982 (I think) Liverpool shirt with the pinstripes similar to this years shirt. Can't remember ever supporting Liverpool, was just happy to have a replica shirt

    Euro 96

    Probably the best tournament I've witnessed, not least because it was in England and the feel good factor everyone had. Watched the games in packed pubs with great atmosphere. Beating Scotland with that goal from gazza, and that celebration. Winning a penalty shoot out! I remember my mate asking me before the Holland game for my prediction, I said 4-0 (joking) couldn't believe it when we went 4-0 up. Didn't mind them getting the one back as it knocked Scotland out :). Great times.

    I wonder if they'd be saying the same thing if it were Bristol City and Brentford who were the top 2 of the Championship?
  6. Agree on the whole Dave. Although I feel that massengo got caught in possession quite often and let players run in behind him too easily. Maeenpaa was impressive and I thought odowda had his best game in ages. Overall the spirit and effort was much more than we've seen in recent home performances and we're going to need that from hereon in if we're going to have any chance of the play offs
  7. I think that players are getting opportunities later than previously due to the longevity of the modern day player. Players now are playing late into their 30s even into their 40s, due to modern day science and players more aware of how to look after themselves. In a results driven business, it's easier for a coach to pick a 'name' rather than trust in youth. Managers nowadays don't often get the opportunity to blood players into the first team. So the modern day trend is to loan them out and hope they get get the experience and prove themselves capable to step up to the next level. Look
  8. Something is not right at the club at the moment. Performances worse week on week, constant personnel and formation changes. It all adds up to the feeling that Johnson has run out of ideas of how to get the best from this group, and that the players seems to lack faith in his leadership
  9. Agreed. My thoughts exactly
  10. Didn't see much in it at the time and I'm of the same opinion after watching the highlights. The most worrying thing is that we looked like the team with 10 men after the red card
  11. I know he scored v Derby but otherwise I have to say I've been unimpressed and feel that we'd have been better off keeping Moore. Interested in others opinions, am I alone in my thinking?
  12. Shows to me that umbro is a better kit manufacturer than puma
  13. West brom would probably be relegation contenders next season bit looked a league above us already today. No way we're ready to go up
  14. A lot of games left between now and the end of the season and none of the contenders for the play offs are consistent with form. It seems I change my mind on a weekly basis if we'll make it or not, and I dare say that will continue over the following weeks. If we can get and keep our players fit and get the new players to gel in quickly then I do believe we will be in the top 6 at the end of the season.
  15. Looks pretty much official to me. I was looking forward to having the opportunity to get a retro classic design that I could wear with pride for the next few years but I certainly won't be parting with my hard earned for that Very disappointed
  16. Just had to do this myself, it's £5
  17. So good you can forgive the odd mistake
