  1. An item of clothing has never forced me to the resist the urge to throw up until now. Bet Nakhi Wells must've had second thoughts about wearing that monstrosity for the shoot. Was it designed by Doctor Frankenstein of the kit world?
  2. On OTIB, whenever City lose, the usual threads appear clamouring for Lee to be sacked and claiming that he's clueless, etc, So, after a good home win, full of excitement and nerve-jangling apprehension, I'd like to offer some gratitude for Lee. And no, this is not point scoring against his haters, so no arguments necessary, but just want to say well done to Lee and everyone at City for taking us into contention for the top two. Quality work, keep it up! Here's looking forward to a strong finish to the season. COME ON YOU REDSSSSSS!!!!
  3. Who on earth is Ray Tolhurst? Is the name meant to be an anagram of something possibly funny? Is he a former City player, may have to google it ...

    His touch to bring the ball down and drop it into the exact space to then hammer it into the roof of the net was sensational. I've watched it this morning on Quest about 25 times, and it gets better every time. Diedhiou is in my list of favourite City players because of his work ethic, goals scored, and apparent passion for the club. You would think he was a Bristolian with the way he celebrates scoring for us. Fammy is a Robin for life. If I had to value him in the current market, he must be worth at least £8million.
  5. What's he ever done to City to warrant booing? All-time England highest goal scorer, will be a privilege to see him at Ashton Gate.
  6. Just seen this game listed for tonight, anyone on here taking a trip over? Will be interesting to see what team is picked. Is there still a sense of a fierce rivalry in these games?
  7. Love this post! And yes, Liverpool have created an oxymoron by doing the impossible; of course this makes it possible, but it really shouldn't be.
  8. RW, you really hate Lee with a passion, don't you? He is currently the manager of a Championship team consistently challenging for the play offs, despite the fact there are at least 15 clubs that would like to be doing the same thing. Do you truly believe it must be easy to be 7th in a league of 24 very good, competitive teams? Even the teams in the bottom 3 this year can still give anyone a game on their day.
  9. I know a lot of people don't care for Liverpool or their recent level of success, but I'm not in that boat. Neither a fan or a hater, just amazed by their performance level over the last 2 years. Liverpool respect aside, the 22 point gap they have accumulated is insane and should be impossible in the Premier League. How on earth has this happened? Clearly the chasing pack and a poor Man City have been unable to live with the league leader's unbelievable pace, but still, has this ever happened before? By how many points will they win the league? It could even be plus 30 come the end. Surely has to be the most successful performance from any English team in the top tier.
  10. Derby are on a good run of form with England's all time goal scorer pulling the strings, so that will be tough, especially coupled with our poor home form. Still, there is the potential for City to win. So I'm going to be optimistic and say 2-1 to City. I expect Leeds to raise their game again soon, and it will probably start against us. Leeds to win 3-1. WBA at home, I would hope for at least a point. I'm going for 4 points. Whatever happens, we'll still be fighting for the top six come the end of the season. For me, not a realistic chance of top two though.
  11. It is a tricky block of games coming up, just looking through I'd guess about 12 or 13. We'll still be hunting for the top six.
  12. How can a league table show a false position in February? Absolute nonsense.
  13. Whilst I certainly don't want Lee sacked and feel he is doing a good job, this really pisses me off today. I'd like to hear a journalist ask him why he didn't start Wells this evening. I sometimes wish he could be over-ruled when he makes a stupid decision with his team selection. Would love it if SL could have said to him before the match, "Lee, just had a little butchers at the team sheet, and um, we can all see Weiman has been crap for a few months, and we've just bought you one of the league's most dangerous strikers, so, um, do you think you could put him in the bloody team please ... now?" "Ok, yes boss, no worries, boss," says Lee, tail between his legs. End result? Nakhi Wells, still brimming with confidence, wants to impress his new fans and tears into Birmingham from the off, scoring a couple of goals in the process. Oh well, guess we'll never know.
  14. I don't think many teams are picking us off at will in the league - you're being melodramatic there!
  15. Serious question then - why are the home attendances increasing, even though the ticket prices are more expensive than ever? The price of football and the food and drink are too high for me, so I only get to see about 1 home game every 5 weeks; I always wish tickets could be cheaper, but see that the attendances are going up so this will never happen. What is attracting all the fans if the games are generally so poor?
  16. But if we won tonight we'd be third in the table, just let that sink in for a moment, how can you sack a manager who has City in such a strong position? We have a strong chance of making the play offs, yes we will lose games for sure and it's going to piss us all off royally, but LJ is still doing a fine job. No need to call for his head.
  17. I'll put a simple response: Lee Johnson doesn't need to be sacked after every defeat! City will lose a lot of games in the Championship - it's a damn near crazy league.
  18. 100% agree, Wells had to start tonight. When I saw the team sheet with AW instead, I was very surprised and disappointed. Lee simply had to play Wells instead of AW - a mistake made - and shows that Lee is too nice to his players. I bet he didn't want to upset AW.

    I've read your additional comments and can see where you're coming from, your first post did seem a bit of a shock to the system! For me tonight, Famara should have scored his volley, and then it's 2-0, and Weiman's own goal was one hell of a mistake. Hopefully AW will be replaced by Wells from now on, as he doesn't offer much as far as I can tell. I would genuinely be gutted if Lee left because I feel he is going to take City up, and it could still happen this season. Birmingham are on a bloody good run of form at the moment.

    It's hard to speculate what Steve and the board would do, we simply don't know. There does come a time though when the board need to decide 100% if promotion is the sole aim, and then set a mandate to push for this at all costs. At the present moment, although promotion is occasionally mentioned, it doesn't seem to be an all-consuming goal for City. Lee's job would be on the line if promotion was the serious goal, and we looked far off it. At this stage, I'm sure the City hierarchy are content with competing well in the Championship whilst gradually getting stronger every season.

    Joe Aman, what the f? Unlike you to post such crap, you're usually such a good contributor on here. I take it then you won't be back at the Gate for a few years, because LJ is going nowhere - year on year improvement and continually increasing attendances can not be ignored.
  22. Just thank your stars it's not the Dunder stand. I can't bloody wait until we ditch Dunder from our shirts.
  23. As someone who has wanted LJ sacked on at least two occasions (haven't we all?), I agree that he's doing a fantastic job as City manager, and is far exceeding my expectations. He is well on course to getting City into the Premier League, which I once thought was highly unlikely under his tenure. Long may Lee remain as manager and long may he keep on pushing City up and up.
  24. This pre-season for me, I was shocked we signed Tommy Rowe; he's one of the only players I've ripped apart before he's even put on a City shirt. Turns out he was right at home in the Championship and did a top job filling in for JD. Sorry, Tommy!
