  1. Fair to say we got away with one last night. Apart from a few moments, Brentford bossed possession, although City didn’t allow them to create too many clear cut chances, mostly longer range efforts. I think playing at Championship level is too early for Semenyo at present, whilst he has got something about him, I’m not sure he’s a sufficient enough threat at this level currently, certainly not as a starter. The minutes will do him good and he’ll learn. Not sure what’s going on in Fam’s head right now, he looked massively disinterested when he came on, very little movement and offering little. I like him for his endeavour and when he’s in the mood he can be a handful, but last night was really a waste of a substitute, I’d have stuck Watkins on. Still we are getting points and places we’ve traditionally not done well at so that has to be positive, plus I loved Jack Hunt sticking Canos into the stand..
  2. He certainly got a kicking throughout the game, deliberately or otherwise.... More so than any other player I would argue
  3. Not quite sure what LJ could have done differently especially when losing Hunt and Massengo during the game. I think we play better with a back 3, but given that Williams has had no pre-season, it would have been a massive gamble to had played him from the start. Not sure what more our central midfield could have done in the game, they're having to play deep which then causes a massive gap between them and the front 2, and then we wonder why Boro have more possession. O'Dowda is not a wing back, neither is Elliason, and we had little else on the bench that could have dealt with the way that Boro played in the 2nd half. Just have to accept that this was one of those games, thankfully the international break will allow a few to come back and Williams to work on his fitness.
  4. There's some total shite being posted on here. Assombalonga is a handful and Moore handled him reasonably well. Sure there's things the lad need to improve on, but overall he's not looking out of place as a championship defender. It's clear we play better throughout the team as a back 3
  5. How many goals did we concede last season to Pack losing the ball either through a misplaced pass or not being quick enough to distribute and then not having the pace to get back and cover? Nagy did an excellent job on Sat and I think he more than looks the part, he keeps things simple and moving.
  6. He does have his strengths though, he is more than capable against more physical forwards, he handled Jutkiewicz reasonably well on Sat, I would argue that he is probably best in the club in that role. I would agree that his distribution is not great, but with a few playmakers and linking midfielders playing in front of him now, that requirement for him to ping a 40 yd cross field ball is not that important. If we play 3 at the back, then I'd play him based on our current squad, if 4 at the back, then he's cover for Kalas.
  7. I had a mate that always went for the mingers, reckoned that they would be grateful and as such would go like the proverbial barn door all night. Let’s hope the proverbial barn door here manifests itself as 20 goals this season.
  8. Question answered Aug 1978. The internet is a wonderful thing. This made me only just 7, so I guess that I can be forgiven for not remembering the date.
  9. My first ever City game in the Grandstand with the old man, I can still picture that goal. Does anyone know when this was, I'm thinking 1976-77?
  10. If you believe the reports that we put a price of £15m in Jan and we are accepting £13m (plus add-ons I’m sure) now then I’m convinced we could of got a higher price, especially if Kelly performs well in the U21 tournament coming up. As for the best deal for him, then I’m not sure. Bournemouth?they’re hardly going to be challenging for Europe season on season. Just getting to 45 points is an achievement for them, no disrespect but the are the tiddler in a very big and expensive pond. I feel we should have kept our powder dry on this one...
  11. cool, you take the first decent offer you get....
  12. I suspect it's massively easier than a lower league team made of up a few U23s, a few 30+ journey men, and half a dozen free transfers with a 6 figure annual budget. Need a new left back? Do we send the scouts out and find a lower league gem, or just spunk 60 mil on one.
  13. Not to this level though, the sort of cash that has turned Man City into the club they are is frankly obscene. Got to stop w**k**g over Pep, let's see him build a team without cash to spend. I suspect even Darryl could win the league with this team.
  14. The Gabriele Jesus is a smug little *****, c'mon Watford you can't win this now, one of you stick a 2 footed challenge on him
  15. It lost its lustre when it became a TV asset that could be moved about for the "overseas" audience. Always remember the FA cup as a kid, coverage starting from midday, helicopter coverage of the team buses making their way to Wembley etc etc, the whole thing felt special. Not now Might not be quite the TV asset if the final regularly turns into dickings like this.
