    If you want to do The Shard for free, go to the bar, it’s on about the 36th floor but the views are amazing, have a pee whilst up there, quite surreal. Drinks are hotel prices, but worth having one just for the view.

    Thanks for the heads up 🙂

    Well I’m going, get to London Bridge, lots of good pubs/ restaurants, then one stop to South Bermondsey and your own walkway in to the away end. What’s not to like 👍. The police even give you an escort out 😇

    Take the day off, do the Bermondsey beer mile before the match.

    Lets hope you don't read the poem John Betjeman wrote about Slough.. and they made him a knight of the realm, overrated

    Come, friendly bombs, and fall on Slough 
    It isn't fit for humans now, 
    There isn't grass to graze a cow 
    Swarm over, Death! 

    Come, bombs, and blow to smithereens 
    Those air-conditioned, bright canteens, 
    Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans 
    Tinned minds, tinned breath. 

    Mess up the mess they call a town - 
    A house for ninety-seven down 
    And once a week for half-a-crown 
    For twenty years, 

    And get that man with double chin 
    Who'll always cheat and always win, 
    Who washes his repulsive skin 
    In women's tears, 

    And they made him a Knight of the Realm...

  5. Hes our best player isn't he? Barely lost the ball, was creative, won 6 or 7 free kicks when most players would have lost the ball. 

    Interception then the run and cross for our first goal summed him up.

  6. I don't understand having a second team. My dad made sure I had no choice but to support City when all my mates supported United in the 90s. I'm glad he did, the highs of supporting City have given me some of the best moments in my life. 

    Not sure you really get that unless it's your local team who you've watched every weekend struggling to win a game in the lower leagues. 

    For Man City fans it must great to see, I see Guardiola's comments as basically a rallying call to get more fans behind the team. For me the supports club guy is a bit of a moron for trying to taking a moral high ground that misses the point. 


  7. We're a little inconsistent and not hugely entertaining to watch but we aren't losing that many games at the moment. Making us harder to beat and a mid table finish would be a great achievement this season and we are very much on track for that.

    Home form is dire, the entertainment isn't the best but its still a whole lot better than last season and there's clear signs of progress. A bit more patience is required than 7 games I think...

    Echo’d. Appreciate times are always changing yet Jon Parkin carved out a decent career - not to long ago either. 

    We should get Britton going full Parkin...

    He is renowned for his large stature (quadruple XL size shirt) and an unusual unathletic lifestyle which includes never going to the gym and not having a diet, eating large portions instead (for example: for lunch; tuna crunch sandwich, a bag of crisps, a pepperoni pizza, a steak bake and either a bacon and cheese turnover or a sausage bean and cheese melt; having a full English breakfast before training).
