  1. Thing is though, don't think City really have a DNA apart from bringing young players through from the academy. So how are we gonna know what manager is best suited to our needs except for what Ive just mentioned. If you look at Brentford, they have a set way of playing football which passes from one manager to the next.
  2. Exactly, so judging by some other comments, the club should be doing it discreetly or outsourcing it to a consultancy.
  3. After reading an article the other day about how in-depth scouting/researching/analysing players has now become, it got me thinking, are City doing this with potential new managers for when the time comes that either Lee is poached/sacked/resigns. In particular, if the club are doing this, are they employing someone (In-House or Consultant) on a full time basis to go as in-depth as possible, looking at all leagues across the UK, Europe, South America and beyond? Obviously the club would ideally have a playing identity set in stone akin to a side like Brentford, so as to make sense of relating in-depth analysis to a goal. Personally I think the club should be doing this 100%, in terms of due diligence and preparation. Do people think the manager should be aware of this, or not? Hearing how Ashton is always claiming to be ahead of the curve and progressive, cant imagine why he wouldn't be. Interested to hear how people think this would affect the inner dynamic of the club?
  4. Scholes ain’t no mug. Any hint of interference from outside and he walks, no ifs no buts, fair play to him. One of the reasons he was one of the best midfielders England has ever produced, his decision making was almost always spot on.
  5. All your points are spot on except for 4. Cant really compare the game then to what is now, its totally different. Plus that was when we were in L1 (3rd division) where defending was of a much poorer quality to what it is these days in the championship.
  6. This is very strange comment indeed. Remember back when we had the Atyeo as our home end and people moaned that the acoustics were very poor!!
  7. Are you for real, was mild compared to past winters.
  8. Id give em all a week off tbh, midfield especially. Cant get much worse from the games we've witnessed lately and most of the season at home. Must be obvious to Johnson there is something glaringly wrong with our home form this season in terms of creating chances. Like someone said above, needs to look at the changing the formation for me.
  9. Is a tractor even allowed on a motorway? That sounds pretty dangerous.
  10. And we golden wonder why football is going mad, here's your answer! Noodles for brains those people in charge. Must have been smoking pot, can't think of any other explanation
  11. Need to change the pen law for handball, especially with var coming in now. I'm sorry but if you don't allow a defender any natural movement at all, then something is very wrong
  12. SU win please. Don't think we've got any chance of catching top two now, so denying points to anyone below us is a must!
  13. Ha haa yeah. Was good mates with a Hull supporter I worked with back at the last play-off final. God I took some grief for that game. I thought typical, we've got Hull last game of the season, sods law there will be something riding on it. He then texted me on Jan transfer deadline day to say they'd signed Windy Asses son!! Thankfully a wind-up, but had me sweating for a moment
  14. Like Allwaysred says, if you've only attended home games this season, the football has been far from lovely and we've seen attritional tight matches pretty much every game!!
