  1. I hope you trust me when I say this, but I have been the archetypal happy clapper around our club since LJ was at the helm. Only the 5-0 at Preston during ‘that’ run came close to me thinking his time may be cut short by powers beyond me. I actually revel in the fact that we are a solid run club who gives managers chances. If nothing else, this alone will stand us in fertile ground when we need a new manager. I started following City when we had Benny there, and I can only stand and appreciate just how good we have become since. Right now though I just can’t get my head around how bad a footballing side we have become. We are dire right now, and have been most of the season. Remember the silk that beat United, the away performance at City, the pundits giving it, ‘Little Bristol, great brand of footy though’... where’s it gone this season? My Leeds fans at the match yesterday - “City were dead as dogs”, “worst opposition we’ve had up here all season” “ you set up to play in our hands”... Remember Wigan home this season, THE worst City performance I have probably ever seen down the Gate. I’ll support us always, never boo, never leave early but shishting hell are we a non event right now. Part of the reason the mainstream media have zero to say about us across the board. Would actually respect one of the pundits if they came out and said we were awful. Which we have been for so long. I dream that this is a LJ masterplan, subtext building and conserving our efforts to peak at the right time (no doubt a dream influenced by the fact we only ever seem to play for 45 min a game, ((zero at Leeds)). Without a doubt the first time in 4 years I have actually doubted the man, and starting to doubt big. Never thought I would say that in the position we are in. Someone tell me I’m mid-life crisis-ing...
  2. Come on you reds is about as predictably flat and tiresome as it gets. COYR.
  3. Funny you should allude to that scenario - I was vaguely watching a sky sports programme about the Man Utd Arsenal rivalry of yesteryear. The one thing that struck me was as how nuts the away fan supporters erupted when scoring a goal.Probably what the modern day football interpretation of the term “scenes” was born from. I wasn’t at the United cup game but that seemed to touch on the old days - Hartlepool play offs was the last I felt it at AG. Love our club and where it is going but there is definitely a bit of ‘sting’ gone from the stands.
  4. Had that as my social media profile pic for a long time. Surprised it never really caught on like it deserved to.
  5. Due to working in Japan at the time, I bagged top corporate tickets for England Argentina in 2002 at Sapporo Dome. When we took our seats,in a very neutral zone of the ground,, I was amazed to see that we were sat next to 2 Gash lads. After a brief introduction, we then proceeded to ignore each other all game, even being the only 4 people losing the plot when Becks scored and when final whistle went. Had a lovely clear conscience when I finally went to sleep that night.
  6. After being aware of him for the last 30 odd years of following City, I had no idea! I suddenly really like him. Thanks for sharing
  7. Perhaps wait until the lad really makes a lasting impact? End of season promotion party for example. Lovely gesture, but jumping the gun a wee bit. Maybe the focus could be the AG crowd spin-bouncing next home game after collecting another 2 wins. He is pretty special mind!
