  1. Watford at home in the League Cup in 2001. 2-0 up and looking OK on 75 mins.
  2. You can’t keep an honest Australian cricketer pleasant.
  3. You know he's out of contract at the end of the season, right? So at the end of the season he can leave. For free. To whichever club he likes and City get absolutely nothing. As a result, in my opinion, £1.5M might be a reasonable fee to buy out the rest of his contract with us.
  4. Oh no! We’re playing tonight? I was blissfully putting off the pain until tomorrow.
  5. Lights going out and a kick in the balls.
  6. I have long banged on about this. Such a mess, though not entirely our own fault thanks to Aalborg wanting stupid money for Andersen at the start of the off-season then accepting far less towards the end, when really we had made our bed with the Thorpe signing. Thorpe barely played that year. Torpey spent more time on the pitch IIRC.
  7. Basso away v Leicester. Ridiculous performance.
  8. I know what you mean. I try not to post frustration but I get wound up far more watching City on the TV than live. You’d expect it to be the other way around... not that I haven’t complained about the odd player a moan at now and again! I’m only human!
  9. Brunt was clearly cooked his last year at WBA. It was basically a sympathy year for a long serving player who was central to a lot of good things for them for a decade. They were not about to carry him into the Prem though hence his release. He isn’t a defensive midfielder though. I get the idea: transition him like Rooney as his experience and quality on the ball should count for something. It’s not really worked for either of them! As for Dinning. He came in on loan and was useful, if not world beating. We had no better options so signed him on a perm and he became diabolical overnight
  10. Proper thumping first ball header on Deeney towards the end, which I enjoyed. Ultimately, I'm not sure he can be relied on as a ball-player in the Webster mould, at the moment at least. However, I believe he CAN defend and defend well. I think I would like to see him be a bit more pragmatic, but that's not really the modern way, I suppose.
  11. It's often the case, but I thought Watford's only real chances came from us dithering or overplaying in and around our own penalty area.
  12. In other words: ‘How is that cobweb going to dig you out of your numerical mess?’
  13. Great stuff as always... ### Pedantry Alert ### After putting Dave right on who we sold Jim Brennan to last week, I can’t allow Josh’s statement that we sold Ade to Leicester stand without correction. We sold him to Wolves. They then sold him on to Leicester shortly after.
  14. Yeah. It’s worse than that. Steve Jones (and his tan) was signed for a ludicrous fee of £450K or thereabouts to lead the line for us for far too long after Ade left. On a side note. I have always held the crackpot opinion that Pulis thought he was signing Clive Mendonca rather than Jones but Curbishley swapped contracts and Tiny was too lazy to read it. Curbishley then gazumped the property Pulis had an offer in on in Clifton while he was at it. Which is where his Bristol property empire began!
  15. Pulis flogged Brennan to Forest, Dave, for £1.5M. Black days, indeed.
