  1. So do you believe we are overachieving and that our ambition each year should be top 12-14?
  2. No, I’m saying we spend that sort of money for promotion, not mid table mediocrity. All you hear about with Johnson is year on year progression, which is true, but people seem to forget that has come with Lansdown backing him by spending more money than ever before. As others have pointed out, the football has been awful for a while now, not helped by having some terrible injuries. So anything less than the play offs this year is unsuccessful and people are rightly concerned about this given back to back home defeats to Millwall and Blackburn in which performances have been well below acceptable.
  3. That wasn’t what I said though. He was allowed £8m to spend on a centre back! Do you think that we paid that in order to avoid relegation?
  4. You missed the part about giving him more money to spend than probably everyone else before him combined!
  5. BBC saying their approach for him has been refused
  6. There is a mix, some premier league clubs, some championship and the odd league 1. One funnily enough is a Fulham fan who would love to have Johnson in charge! They couldn’t believe they lost to little old city last week
  7. When I have my usual football chats with non-city supporting mates and I have little rants (mainly out of frustration) about city and Johnson, they never understand where I am coming from. They all see city as this little club who are punching above their weight and think I should be grateful for where the club are currently. They say about the year on year progression and our (lack) of history. I try to tell them we aren’t a little club anymore. We have a modern stadium, we spend more on transfer fees and wages nowadays than ever before. We didn’t spend £8m on Kalas in order to guarantee a top 12 finish! After the Fulham game they were all saying how fantastic Johnson was and that we were lucky to have him. After the last two games they then say that’s the level we should expect to be at. Anyone else have similar conversations with non-city supporting friends? Are they right? Do some of us city fans have too high expectations?
  8. Has there been any update anywhere on when we can expect Kalas and Dasilva back? Can’t help but feel these two will be pivotal in the remainder of the season. Afobe as we know is out long term. No Korey on the bench tonight. Was this tactical or injury enforced?
  9. There are only two teams showing any consistency at the moment and that’s Leeds and WBA who are running away with it. Fulham have now lost two on the bounce, Notts Forest haven’t won for three games yet remain in 4th. Its a crazy league. 6 points from the last 9 wouldn’t have seemed so bad if someone said two weeks ago we would beat Huddersfield and Millwall but lose to Fulham. We just got the Millwall and Fulham results back to front.
  10. Gary Rowett has always been a good manager. No surprise to see them playing decent football
  11. I know someone in an under 10 academy and their life is dictated by football. They train and play a lot! Also very expensive as you are expected to pay to go on the tours when they are arranged. As well as this, they are not allowed to play any other football with local clubs with their mates. Once in an academy they are committed to it. Then there is the chance of being told by the academy they are not good enough and get released which can be devastating for a child. At the end of the day it’s up to you and your son but if he just enjoys playing football I believe playing at a local club with friends is best at that age. Playing football should be about enjoying it without any added pressure. Plenty of time in the future for academies if that’s the route you eventually want to go down.
  12. Personally speaking I’ve enjoyed the last couple of nights watching on Prime, maybe more so as we are in our 30 free trial. Having the option to watch any game is a good addition.
  13. Cheers. Very strange seeing premier league games kicking off at 19:30!
  14. Fairs. I was surprised to see the same people as on the beeb. So is it a choice of all games tomorrow?
