  1. Good luck to you, they are out there - if football is not their passion when you meet then 'Miss Right' will not only accept your passion for City, but show a genuine interest in the game too. I'm fortunate to have got together with my wife on a City away trip - the younger sister of a friend, who took the spare place which appeared on a minibus at the last minute. She's supported City ever since, sometimes with a ST, sometimes from home, but only regularly attends when the club is generally a happy place and doing reasonably well. Whereas some of us take the rough with the smooth sh
  2. No doubt we will next season - let's hope he proves as ineffectual against City as you seem to believe he will.
  3. Very disappointing, but as you say we have to get behind NP and his decisions - although I doubt this outcome was what he wanted. Very interested to see how Walsh gets on at his next club, especially when playing against us next season.
  4. The first name I'll be looking for is Walsh - the only one on the list I'm really bothered about keeping. It's clear Nige rates him and would prefer him to stay or negotiations would not have been continuing yesterday. Hopefully they managed to come to an agreement.
  5. Don't agree with a few of your choices, but good to have your considered thoughts Dan.
  6. His daughter, Gaby Logan was there as well as a 12 year old.
  7. Good idea, would be interesting probably but have to be quick. Where's arch pollster Prinny when you need him?
  8. Ideally of course you'd have several leader types in the team, but we have all seen that is not always the case, particularly with modern players. Even then a leader of the leaders is required, who is also the managers' voice on the pitch who has the RESPONSIBILITY to cajole the players to ensure the managers' plans are put into action and that there is total commitment from his team mates. It's much more than 'wearing a bit of cloth and dishing out tickets' - again this is belittling the importance and positive influence of a well chosen and widely respected Captain imo.
  9. We'll see - but unless NP can somehow instil more aggression and aerial competitiveness in Taylor - characteristics that apparently do not come naturally to him - I suspect he will not be NP's type of player. As I say, he'll go for hard men, and pleasant chaps under contract will be loaned out if they can't be sold imo. Flint was an outstanding player for us, but the task now is to find the next Aden Flint now, not bring back the old one!
  10. Moore must be one of our longest serving players now (5 years by the start of the new season) and really hasn't noticeably improved. The days of the nice- but not very good - guys are over at NP's Bristol City, I hope. I can see us signing at least 1, maybe 2, huge, ultra competitive, hard as nails, and - on field at least - thoroughly unpleasant CB's this close season.
  11. A very modern take on things, and one I don't agree with. Having a proper, respected Captain makes a big positive difference imo. Are you saying Crouch was ever a Captain? Makes a mockery of the position if so.
  12. Can't read NP's mind, but if it were me making the decision Baker - Free transfer Mariappa- Keep. Offer 1 year deal as experienced cover, with take it or leave it wages to reflect that Rowe- Free transfer Hunt- Free transfer Watkins- Free transfer Walsh- Do our utmost to keep, within reason Simpson- Keep. Offer 1 year deal as experienced cover, with take it or leave it wages to reflect that Gilmartin- Leave the club Lansbury- Leave the club Diedhiou- Free transfer Weinmann- Keep Paterson- Free transfer Adelakun - F
  13. Not sure about that - I wouldn't be surprised if Moore is moved on if possible.
  14. Stead was a trier and a popular figure, but hardly a prolific scorer, and certainly not at Championship level. 20 goals in 3 seasons for City. Britton appears to have Stead's assets - enthusiasm, determination, and a battling style that makes him a crowd pleaser - but the big plus he has on Stead is he's a natural goal scorer. Let's hope he has the opportunity next season to show whether he can score regularly for City in the Championship.
