  1. From the official site Do red button games count as "selected for Sky TV"? I assume they do as there were a number of games last year not broadcast on the red button despite being midweek fixtures - although it would appear the club would have to opt-out if they didn't want the sky coverage (so they're not exactly hand-picked).
  2. Signing a player on that money for a relegation battle would be a huge gamble, when a team in that scenario could go down and are lumbered with a player on decent money (even if he takes a 50% cut for relegation that would still be substantially more than L1 players). I think if a team that was expected to be in a relegation scrap comes out as a mid table finisher they are likely to pick him up for free at the end of the year - he proved on loan that his experience can be worth as much as his ability in some games to a relatively inexperienced team at this level. Don't think anyone h
  3. Indeed quite a feat - and this is weird, I think the answer is Sheffield Wednesday in the 17-18 Season, a 0-0 draw. Something we repeated in the home game which we won 4-0. We also managed to stop Burton having a shot on target at Ashton Gate, we haven't managed it home or away since Sheffield Wednesday at home in March of that season. source:football-data.co.uk. It shows a really good defensive performance by the team - what will be intriguing about watching a Holden side is that they aren't going to be built around winning the numbers games like Johnson's sides were. I expect
  4. Such a strange game; Man City were given tickets for half the away end. Southend won the league and IIRC Gary Johnson made the players watch the presentation, I doubt many would have trudged off given the choice though. Also could have been the season Jamal Campbell-Ryce won promotion with both Southend & Colchester and went on both open top bus parades (after loan spells).
  5. I subscribed at the start of the season, I expected to cancel after the free trial but the variety is quite interesting. I don't think there is anyone specifically covering City but you can pick City as your topic of interest and there's a feed that shows you every article containing a reference to City. As others have said, there's a lot about bigger clubs but you can understand that because the Athetic want to consider themselves a 'player' in football media. I tend to avoid the comments sections, particularly aroud issues that get fans' backs up (imagine the threads about Villa &a
  6. We played Walsall in one of the two years we were in League One last, my mate spotted him in the City end - that game one of the Lino's (or even the ref) went off injured, I'm not even sure there was an announcement but I'm sure he came from the City end to be 4th official.
  7. Testimatanu scored a screamer away at Chesterfield, night game in 1999, for some reason I was really put out I missed that And take your pick from the 3 goal against Leicester in what must have been 2009/10 ish - Sno Skuse & Sproule
  8. Announce the "Bottle it" memes on twitter... I think a lot of City fans enjoy LJ living rent free inside the heads of many other supporters - I can't help but think this will be back to haunt us on various social media channels
  9. This sums up how I felt leaving the game - we know we struggle against teams that will sit back. I did wonder if Johnson would put sentiment to one side and play a team that suited the game Millwall always bring to Ashton Gate (It could have been more physical or more technical), for once I don't think he took enough account of the opposition. Not that I disagreed with the selection, hindsight is a wonderful thing. The tactic of drawing the opposition out seems to bring our defenders into a battle further up the pitch and can leave us exposed, this is the fall back if we don't get an earl
  10. Apologies, this went on a lot longer than expected - a summary of my points is: If a BCFC official posted on here, you would read "a spokesman for bcfc said" before you actually read every post. They can't be on top of everything & I think we're moving to a world (hyper-critical, increased accountability) that doesn't make it possible to cover all bases, unfortunately otib looks like it will be an uncovered base. Otib is no where near as extreme but could you imagine the Royal family or the BBC commenting on the Daily Mail website, regularly, it would add fuel to a fire they have no contro
  11. I know they are rose tinted but in my eyes the first is not one to be disallowed - Moore does go backwards but the goalkeeper has completely failed to take control of the situation. If he stands his ground or jumps and even flaps at the corner, there is no goal as TM probably goes on and fouls him - he didn’t and managed to have the ball land in his arms, which he promptly dropped. The second one I would say is more up for debate. But for me it’s a case of Johnson trying to push a player away from the keeper, you can’t see a push, but the city player’s probably just nudged him and he’s kn
  12. Great report as always - the phsical nature of this game seemed to be the catalyst for the events that followed. We stood up to a team that normally bully us and have so far this season, dominated possesion in some games and strangled the life out of them. We scored 3 times and conceded 1 in open play (penalties were identified as a problem in preseason but these were harsh). It was a good day a the office, we can count ourselves unlucky (whether error or misfortune) that the score was 3-3, on a different day it could have been 5-1 & it wasn't down to the players that it wasnt. From a
  13. All the puns about Barry Corr and John Burns is/was actually in a band and released music c2010 I remember going to see a tribute band in Stratford-upon-Avon a few years ago and saw they were due to play the same place, interesting career change!
  14. I was interested to see Pring was dropped in Walsall's 3-0 defeat to Plymouth Clarke said the below on their OS While it's a sensible approach, it's pleasing to see managers who are effectively caring for our players, looking out for them when he could just be sending him out game after game. Also suggests his fitness is as important to them as the first couple of results suggest. 3-0 was their heaviest of 3 defeats (league & cup), I think he's played as a wing back in a 3-5-2 - a couple of Walsall fans I know have remarked on his hard work. You'd expect them to play
