  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. One of my absolute favourite players Also, the player I bumped into most between 4-6am, Saturday night on Park Street. -tried to buy him a drink, wouldn't have it, insisted on buying me one.
  5. My metabolism felt so slow at times it went backwards, If i looked at food, i gained weight. Most definitely did not play fair.
  6. My philosophy was/is you don't have it in the house to look at it. so no alcohol in the house. More so with chocolate and sweets too. I picked A Sunday morning weigh in, So I couldn't go out on weekend nights. (however Saturday would also be perfectly fine, Fridsy morning I wouldn't advise as too much of a weekend ahead) there were some extremely painful family nights where the whole room was eating pizza and socially pressuring me to do so, but i knew weigh day was in the morning, so I resisted. as time went on, I would skip a weigh week, because I had earnt the right to enjoy a Saturda
  7. @elhombrecito done I get a lot of comments about the topless now one, mostly negative, but most do not understand that that is not my end game, simply part of the process. I also had Coronvirus, it was pretty bad. What i can tell you for sure is, if I had not lost the weight, I would have died, Coronavirus hit me pretty hard, so I truly truly believe that.
  8. The first question you have to ask yourself is how much do you want to lose weight? is it just words or are you serious about it. simply no excuses, and be accountable to what you eat, I have 5 whats-app groups where i have posted my weight over the last 3 years or so. i had no place to hide. if you are serious about it set yourself a reasonable target. aiming for 1lb to 1.25lb a week is your objective. (anything more is a bonus, but that is always the goal, believe me it builds up) So 24 to 30 weeks. lose it over time and consistently. I followed a 2 week rule, if i didn't lo
  9. Thanks in part to @elhombrecito I've lost 110lbs in the last 2.5 years. And 141lb in total since beginning 2016 Ill write here this evening: I'm writing this now to remind myself to write later.
  10. Love him as a commentator. one of my favourites was early 2000s champions league semi, Maldini ran half the length of the pitch, had acres of in front of him. Seedorf played the ball straight out of play, a very poor pass. Drury was furious, called Seedorf disrespectful. was genuinely angry. do not hear commentators like that very often. .... and who can forget this icon moment.
  11. That was either my first game or the first game or any game I have any memory of. My father is adamant I went before that, but I have no recollection whatsoever
  12. A player needs to be on board with the changes for a start. I mean of course they can, see here. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/08/return-of-adel-taarabt-reinvented-himself-at-benfica-qpr But remember, Just to get to first team football is bloody difficult. You have to have absolute belief in your own attritubes as a player. Even scouting at a young age, they are looking for what makes you special, As players move up the youth and professional ladder, their own motion that these are my strengths gets reinforced (in palmer's case, those strengths led to a valuation i
  13. The boos he recieved after scoring were something else. It was high level hatred for sure. As a 9 year old at the time, I'm not even sure if my memory is correct, but I remember him instinctively running to the corner to celebrate expecting adulation, and receiving nothing but abuse back. A remarkable moment for how unusual something like that is.
  14. I was always of the impression that it was near impossible to mess up a home shirt...... Until now. As someone who can be a bit "out there" with what I wear on a football pitch, really didn't think I'd ever dislike any shirt. It's pretty much the first city shirt that has made me cringe.
  15. One way or another, this will be a fun thread to revisit come May
  16. Federer and nadal needed each other. United and arsenal 98 to 03 needed Ronaldo and Messi needed each other The point: you only need each other if you make each other better: case rested.
  17. Sterling is a great example of a player that was a bag of nerves in front of goal. Very much the "would be great if could finish" type. Definately not one you could say was an instinctive scorer. Now he's a machine. True some players just know where the goal is, but of course you can teach it. With repetition repetition repetion of the right kind of practice, eventually it becomes instinctive.
  18. Taunton v Diss Town: my first game at Wembley. Nottingham forest v Liverpool: first Prem game. West brom V Sheffield Weds (the G. Johnson promotion year from league 1 I was struck by the pace of that game, thought we'd never cope up there) Shrewsbury v that lot (in the Shrewsbury end at Wembley) Real Madrid v malaga Real Madrid v copenhegan Atlético Madrid v Valencia Atlético v Barcelona (epic) Atlético v Bayern Munich (epic everything) Atlético v real (Ronaldo hat trick) Atlético v qarabag Malaga v Granada Recritivo v cadi
