  1. Steve Allen interview - injuries

    Great bloke, very clear in his explanations and loves his job. Showed his impressive knowledge without getting too technical and he obviously really cares about our players. Touching to see that he feels it's partly his responsibility when they get injured and equally shares in their joy when they recover and play well. Very reassuring to know that he is with us and rates our Club.
  2. International Recognition of a Kind

    'The postillion has been struck by lightning". That phrase, plus pairs of nylons and cadbury's chocolate will get you anything you desire when travelling on the Continent.
  3. International Recognition of a Kind

    Coup de grace (lawn mower)
  4. Now a believer

  5. Magnússon Tackle

    Honestly. You boys are so rude!
  6. Magnússon Tackle

    Hörður put in a tremendous tackle last night when a Fulham player was about to shoot in a dangerous position. If it's a confidence thing with him then that alone must have given him a tremendous boost.
  7. Macca and Holden

    Said on here several times that I was sick about what happened to Pembo and especially with MA's bullshit smarmy explanation BUT Take my hat of to the Club for having put together a great management team. Developing young players is the true sign of good coaching. O'Dowda especially has truly come out of his shell. I've always been envious of other Clubs having bags of nippy, skilful, quick-thinking players. Well now we've got that, plus a defence that can see out a game without doing the usual "City thing" in injury time IF WE BEAT THE SHEEP SHAGGERS AT ASHTON GATE I WILL TRULY START TO BELIEVE!
  8. Bobby Reid

    Back to Bobby. On the highlights it looks like an impossible angle for the header. Brilliant leap and header from Bobby, now back to equal top scorer in the League but did the wind/someone help it in?
  9. Biggest City sick note

    Classic. Tripped over his dog lead. Imagine even a schoolboy staying off and giving that as an explanation? Got to say that the Club has definitely ditched the idea that an ex-international, ex-Premiership player who has been out for a substantial time can magically reinvent their heyday playing for City.
  10. Biggest City sick note

    With all due respect mate I think you have to take a look at your definitions. 'Sicknote", some one in the office who is always off sick, footballer who hardly ever plays? So I have to disagree about Brooker, unfair to put him in the sicknote category and I'd argue his career was short because of failures by our medical team to which you refer .A 'Sicknote" to me that means a player "of an inexplicably delicate disposition" eg like Malcolm Graham going back to the Peter Doherty era. The last thing that Brooker was was delicate or vulnerable to minor injury . He wasn't "too often injured" with us. Later yes when he was struggling to resurrect his career, especially with other clubs, following his major knee injury. It has to be admitted he had a short career which wasn't helped by his build, not especially tall but 14 stone of meat and gristle, so when he hit somebody they stayed hit. On the other side one suspected that he would one day take a leg injury because of his weight and point of balance. Imagine going over on an ankle with that lot above it? He was more like a rugby player. He wasn't one to have niggley injuries like Matthews. Ribeiro was again a player I thought had the wrong build for football - top heavy? And like a few others mentioned above seriously injured within minutes of starting a game. We had 3 very good years out of Brooker which I will always treasure. City messed up Brooker's operation and recovery from his only major injury to the knee at Port Vale (ironically) which effectively was the start of the end of his career with a succession of other injuries. Other than that he wasn't out that much. Made 93 appearances in his peak period for us between 2004 and 2007, scoring 34 goals. Very good ratio. Will never forget his "comeback" goal against Norwich at the Gate that took us top of the Championship.
  11. City / Leeds memories and connections

    Apologies all round. Who was the other bloke, contemporary with Hunter, who came form Leeds?
  12. City / Leeds memories and connections

    Jon Stead scoring a consolation goal at Elland Road where we lost 3- 1 to a Becchio hatrick 13 November 2010. You could see how much it meant to a Huddersfield boy putting one past the arrogant Leeds. Sorry to say this but (aside from Cooper, Hunter and Cormack) I hate the Club. fans, stadium, coppers and the city. Up itself in a big way. By contrast Sheffield is a warm friendly place. Went to the game with my wife, son and daughter. When Steady scored and we were celebrating, the coppers didn't like it and pushed past my missus to try and pull my son out of the ground. I said "Leave him alone he's done nothing, I'm not letting go of him" Horrible ****ers. Looking forward to us doing them.
  13. Disallowed Goal - Highlights Judge For Yourself

    Josh played the ball and in so doing ran into the man who should get an Oscar for the acting. We had the impetus going forward, if there was any doubt the advantage should have gone our way. What a **it ref/linesman.

    Could have been a lot worse in terms of it being like the old City on the big occasion
