  1. I'm getting very worried now - I've been watching city for 1/2 a centuary on and off (much more on than off) but was starting to get really fed up with the entertainment value this year so went to a couple of rugby games as well. Now I find I'm missing the entertainment provided by a positive winning rugby team a bit more than the football - if/when this season starts again I think it's going to need a real effort from lee and the boys to get me back to feeling the 'good times' again.
  2. Gaining a point at home and climbing back up to 7th doesn't make my original post untrue.
  3. .....should the results go against us today we could be mathematically closer to relegation than promotion
  4. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere recently but in an attempt to lift myself from the gloom caused by many of our recent performances, I had a quick look through the Championship tables since 2004 and found a couple of Stats that I'm sure many of you already now - but if not ...... The lowest number of points needed to reach the play-offs was 71 (Leicester in 2013) They did OK in the following couple of years. The lowest goal difference for a top 6 finish was Huddersfield (ironically -2) in 2017. They went on to win the play-offs without scoring a goal (1 own goal and two pen shoot outs) At first this cheered me up a bit, then I realised that if Lee knows this then maybe he doesn't think its necessarily worth creating goal scoring chances anymore if you can get by without them.
  5. Absolutely cracking 3 mins of post match drivel about identity , inspiring each other and 'n' players needing to step up. I will sleep well tonight knowing Lee's got a handle on what to do for Milwall.
  6. LJ won't go until we do - when attendances drop Steve will get rid - but not before then I'm afraid. And be careful what you wish for - Jamie Mac is a shocking prospect.
  7. It would surprise me if I'm honest - unless we can play the bottom 3 every week. On current (particularly home) performances I would be surprised if we finish within 7 points of 6th. We might get a shot on target though ........
  8. I think we will have done well if it comes down to goal difference
  9. 7 from 12 would mean having to win at least one at home - looks unlikely to me. I doubt if the Preston game will be relevant I'm afraid.
  10. Lee says he will not chastise the players but they made bad decisions and lots of errors. They need to inspire each other and inspire the staff!
  11. Sorry - I want a performance at home - and at least a shot on target ......win or lose
  12. I don't really care what he'll say - I'll only laugh at him anyway
  13. At the end of the season I would prefer 12th over 7th. If we make the playoffs then great - we can give it a go and who knows where it will lead - even if we don't make it to the prem we might just stop Leeds (Ha!) The problem with 7th is it ticks the 'year on year'improvement box and for me the y/y improvement needs to include some measure of Home performance, entertainment, value, pride etc ...........
  14. I've started to fear the playoffs. This is almost a lose/lose situation for me. IF we get to the play-offs and get promoted, then unless we spend big I fear the worse. Regular beatings, fewer proper time kick-offs, higher prices and oodles more Sky pundit bellox. The only upside would be future parachute payments. If we make it to the top six and don't go up, then the 'year on year' improvement and the achievement of making the play-offs means we will have to endure another year (or maybe more) of really dull football at home because it will have been proven to be a successful formula. If we have to play the way we do at home in order to get into the play-offs I'm not sure I wan't us to get there.
  15. Though Rooney was very god at times but still chuckling at the Parry love in - "cleverly won throw in" on 92 mins when Rowe cut out his pass.
