  1. I've always liked Hearts of Oak in Africa
  2. I know exactly what you mean. He played like a cross between Allison, Van Dijk, Pogba and Messi, with a little Gow thrown in. Still got a lot to learn though.....
  3. Faustus and MaloneFM were always good fun. I've always had the image in my head of those two like Waldorf and Statler from the Muppets
  4. Agree with most of that. Well worth the £3 per month subscription if you're happy to read about other stuff not involving City. Some really good in depth articles about all sorts of players/teams/issues within the game.

    Wait, what? He was the guy that killed John Hurt in the original Alien film? The mind boggles.....
  6. Can't remember the year (90's) but we had Preston away last game of the season and iirc we needed to win to clinch the title/promotion. Didn't have a ticket but thought we could get one at the ground. Unfortunately, it was sold out and nobody had one for sale anywhere. The pubs were shut so me and 1 of the guys i went up with (the other 2 already had tickets) went back to the car to listen to the game on the radio only to find the only game on local radio was Burnley v Gas. City lost 2-0 (?) and we lost one of our mates. Spent hours driving around trying to find him (none of us
  7. Tbh, I'm not even angry or upset as this is the exact same thing this club has done throughout my 35 years of supporting and ive come to expect this type of decision by the club. Let's face it, we are renowned as a club that can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory time and time again. I am looking forward to some funny comments from our more emotional fans though. There's bound to be some absolute gems. Every cloud and all that....
  8. If its in the final minute of the match, then the ref would've blown and the players would've had their showers by the time JET finished his run up.
  9. We've been supporters long enough to know whatever the club say in the media, some fans will twist it to make it seem worse than intended. The most sensible option for the club (any club for that matter) is to say nothing and only say something once contracts have been signed. I actually agree with the media silence from the club until they have something concrete to tell us. Otherwise its just irrelevant platitudes to please the impatient. Surely nobody would be interested in Mark Ashton saying ' we have looked at all the available options, and we know the type of person we, as
  10. Without a doubt, there is definitely an element of truth there Dave. Its almost as if they have believed the media hype that we are a well run and financed club and and have convinced themselves that we must not deviate from this path without realising that the best people constantly adapt to changing circumstances. O'Driscoll called it when he was appointed, when he said that managers in the future will benefit from the processes he was implementing at the time. He knew the club was an utter shower of shit and had to be dragged into modern times but it would take years that he would
  11. Concerning this part of your previous post: There needs to be a damn good reason why it’s taking this long and I’d bloody love to know what it is. In the absence of even a shred of information I’m struggling to conclude anything other than boardroom incompetence. The only reason I can see is a financial one. Mainly, we are talking the wrong appointment could cost the club millions in mis-spent money. With the way finances have been reduced for the vast majority of non-Premier League clubs in this current pandemic climate, I have the feeling we DO have finances spare to imp
  12. CR, I completely understand your concern and I also have the same concerns but my point being was that IF the board wanted to take their time, now is the optimum time to do it. That wasn't me excusing it. Do I think it should take this long? Absolutely not. Do I think we will get the best available manager? Absolutely not. Do I think that there are conflicting opinions within the hiring 'committee' ? Absolutely yes, and it all depends on who has the most clout in this situation. Let's face it, it should never take this long to pick a football manager considering there are
  13. Ffs, we have no games for ages, the players are having a break and we don't appear to be that active in the transfer market yet. If the club feel like they want to take time to decide who our next gaffer is, now would be the time to do it. Whether they make the right decision remains to be seen but I, personally, have no issues with the club taking their time over this. However, if Holden or Macallister get the job after all this I will not be impressed.
  14. Halfway through and have had to stop to cook food. Fair to say he really dislikes Steve Evans. Can't wait to listen to the rest. Great work (again) guys
