  1. After 9 years, I still can't
  2. Moves and counter moves. What you've described is basically for me the joy of sport.
  3. You don't change, you double down. Change players, but you certainly don't change formation and tactics. For the last few years, we've had a plan B, c, D, e,f. Guess what we didn't seem to have: identity. They best teams are where everybody knows their role. They can have evolving jobs down to game management, but everyone knows. Last night was down to a lack of changes and tiredness. That's down to a management phylosophy of continuity from which they'll have to learn. Double down, build an identity. Then live or die by it. Now is not the moment to abandon it.
  4. If he just stood there and watched without making a challenge then he'd get pelters for a lack of effort and commitment. He was unlucky, was it even a clear cut pen in terms of position? Either you want players to fully commit and accept these things happen sometimes Or You allow those headers to go unchallenged due to a player not giving their all. You can't have it both ways, just not how it works.
  5. His goal kicks too. My goodness couldn't get passed the half way line. We were under pressure simply because we had a goal kicks, all teams knew there was a liability there it and set up to attack it.
  6. When I look at the squad this season, it feels to me as though its the strongest squad this decade. There are a healthy ammount of youngsters around including some that were out on loan now ready to seriously challenge the first time, even establish. Brunt, Martin, mawson.... Two exceptional veterans along with a highly regarded centre back. The one thing it's lacking is a Murray, Adomah type player... The exciting consistent winger who can also turn a game just like that but that's been the case for a while. Has the squad been this strong in the last ten years?
  7. The scores stick in the mind... The 1st because of the sheer positivity going into the season. The second because as soon as saw the team sheet with no new signings in the 1st 11. Starting the same 11 that were involved in the season before was just a feeling of "this isn't good"
  8. I looked it up, you are on the Money, my bad!!!
  9. Memory fades but wasn't the James 3-0 part of two opening day loses in a row 3-0? 1 v Reading possibly 1 v Leeds Not a 100% but something like that.
  10. You were so poor in one season, we had to stop it half way through. Fantasy is not your game
  11. Blackpool in one playoff chasing end of season game was awful. As was the 0-0 there in August in a season shortly after , no shots on target, ANNNND cold really cold I was happy to eventually see city win there, so never have to go again. ...... Colchester 2005/2006 (I think) apart from setting a record a some pub quiz game with @elhombrecitowas pretty awful too. A terrible game that City weren't in from start to finish.
  12. Think they are awesome myself. I am surprised they didn't take the chance for some kind of tie in, a la https://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/jul/01/rayo-vallecano-rainbow-kit-supports-lgbt-rights
  13. This goal barely gets a mention. Was about to write it myself. When I spoke to him about it, he said its one not many people bring up either, people remember other goals but not this one. I truly stunning goal at the end of a slog of a 90 mins.
