  1. Legend is a much over-used word, especially in football, but if there's one person it's right for then it's Terry Cooper. In over 50 years of supporting City, there's no-one else, and no-one else's time at the club, that I think of with greater affection. He did so much, at a time when we were rock bottom, and did it with such energy and with such good nature. I've still got the hand-written reply he sent me when I wrote and begged him not to resign, as he threatened to do after our so called fans embarrassed the club at Reading. Its shocking that he has no recognition at the club. I don't know what's involved, but if there's any sort of group or initiative, or just a contribution needed to get something done then I'd be so pleased to help.
  2. By which time the sags debt will be £17m too!!
  3. So, about what we got for Lloyd Kelly!
  4. Good news indeed. And good news if Kalas is a possibility we’re pursuing actively, as he seems to suggest in the article.
  5. Agree with you, and we certainly didn't miss Flint and Bryan (not so sure about Bobby) this season. But what worries me slightly is this. Flint and Bryan were half of a back four the shipped goals consistently over 2-3 seasons. This season we've had a much much solider looking back four, and if we don't keep Kalas or Dasilva then that's at least half of it gone. And just because we've successfully filled gaps like that one year doesn't mean we will again.
  6. Been thinking of posting just this myself. I get all the stuff about it being good business, we have to sell to progress, good move for Lloyd and so on. But from a personal perspective, and as a City fan, one of the highlights of this season has been seeing Lloyd progress and watching his early Chamionship development. Just like Bobby Reid before him. Local lads who've come up through the academy proper, not (much as I enjoy them too) players we've borrowed from another club's academy. I'd far rather we made our money from buying and selling the Kodjia's, and could look forward to a team of Bobby Reid's and Lloyd Kelly's taking us to the Premiership.
  7. They may be odd, but they're the parameters; stick to the question. Just because you don't want to spend 24 hours trawling the internet.......
  8. To put it in perspective (although I'm not sure that word and football finances should go in the same sentence) Chelsea paid over £5m for a 16 year old with one first team appearance to his name. Tomas Kalas.
  9. If, by 'money made' you mean transfer fees, yes, we made a lot. £23m on the three sales last summer. But money spent had left us with a new deficit in that years accounts of, guess what, £23m. That makes 100% spent in my book?
  10. Memorial Ground when Steve Philips saved a pen and sent them down. Crawley, the day the gas went non league. And I can remember us singing ‘the gas are down’ constantly for almost 90 minutes at, I think, Wigan? That must have been when they went from 3rd to 4th div. Seriously though, the big games were the league cup semis, Liverpool, Arsenal, Coventry,and that play off semi at Palace was a great one too. But for sheer emotion Mansfield, and Chester when we went up from the 4th division.
  11. One evidently not quality enough for Boro......
  12. Did I read somewhere also that we're currently the only club in the league with four or more consecutive improvements in our league position?
  13. If Kalas leaves, Lloyd Kelly. If he doesn’t, does Kalas signing count?!
