  1. It was shocking pass by Rowe especially as we appeared to have a potential way back into the game we scarcely deserved. Pretty sure NP said in a recent interview he really liked working with TR so will be interesting to see what happens. Always seems to be an honest hardworking squad member who is probably a good influence on the many youngsters we have. I wouldn’t throw him under the proverbial bus on the basis of that shocking pass today.
  2. It’s a depressing read in many ways. Credit to PS for trying to be open and professional in response to the questions and he is accurately summing up where we are as a club. The problem with being so honest is managers like Warnock will get hold of what he’s said and use it as best he can to exploit every weakness he can.
  3. Anyone that saw Max at Villa in 2019 knows that he’s got it. Of course he needs to prove that week in week out but I see no reason why he can’t do that given a run of games. Having DB and MO on board is a fantastic position to be in.
  4. Not sure how. Only shot on target came rom a wicked deflection. If you don't hit the target you will not pick up points.
  5. Remember our own Louis Carey had the same injury after a clash with Joe Garner? Always felt there was a nasty side to Garner after that and never liked him since. Certainly looked accidental yesterday. Hopefully, like Carey, Jiminez makes a full recovery.
  6. You couldn’t make it up could you. This government is full of mixed messages. An open air 27,000 capacity stadium is not safe with say a 20% crowd but a pub after being open for 10hrs with no obvious ventilation is?? I get the travel thing and crowd control before and after but there are ways of managing that in a controlled way to minimise transmission.
  7. Fair enough. Disguised his London accent well then!
  8. I like the way he also mentions “those of you travelling with us on the away days”. He’s said previously that he spent all the money he had and some that he didn’t have following Man City as a teenager. Does feel like he gets what it’s like to be a fan which I’m not sure you can say about all managers.
  9. Anyone at Birmingham away last season could tell he’s got something pretty special. Unfortunately he hasn't shown it consistently but tonight his performance reminded me of what he can do. So much energy, made himself available all over the pitch and played with an intelligence that gave confidence. Let’s hope that’s the bar set, if so he could be a key player this season.
  10. A few of us were chatting after the game saying it looks like Holden is not only stepping into LJ’s shoes but it looks like he's wearing his trousers as well!
  11. Spot on Dave. I was probably one of the more forgiving supporters of LJ but I don’t recall such clarity of message as he invariably seemed to mix what he wanted to say with some strange and irrelevant metaphor. DH seems to have the ability to get across a simple and clear idea which hopefully the players will get.
  12. This interview is everything you want to hear from a manager/head coach. Whether or not he was initially in with a chance of the job (and I don’t think he ever was near the top of the list) he comes across as totally convincing. Honesty and integrity are great qualities and Dean seems to have these in abundance. He deserves our support.
  13. Remember it well. Rumours that the game was close to being called off due to the weather. That would have been a first - game postponed in August due to a waterlogged pitch!!

    Persuaded my French speaking daughter to look at this and she picked up the following: He is living his dream to play in England and is grateful to city for giving him the opportunity. He really enjoyed last season and felt LJ trusted him but accepts that the team had difficulties after the restart of the season. He really likes living in England with his family and it is his aim to stay but it is important to take time to make the right decision. He talks to the other Senegalese players based in England a lot and they support each other and give each other advice. He has appreciated all

    Where the hell did you find this Rob?!! Just asked my daughter to take a look as she’s In her last year of studying French at university. She said the female presenter was trying to wind Fam up by saying he could be doing better than being at city and as you said one of the blokes was also suggesting the same thing. They were talking about the fact that at championship level Fam could expect to play more minutes even though the wages might be less than moving to a higher profile club. Fam agreed with this and said that city is an ambitious club but have just missed out in the la
