    City Matters thread

    I think there is an element of truth in your post, when people criticise City Matters and say what have they achieved, they should really be criticising the club and saying what have they implemented, not blaming City matters for the clubs lack of action. With City matters they can only bring...

    City Matters thread

    Could it be more a geopolitical factor and the owners of our club, never wanted to criticise Turkeys hosting of the final based on relations between the two countries have only recently started to improve and Turkeys president is notoriously sensitive to any perceived slight?

    Worst away days

    Yes strange old trip that one. Walking to the ground a single fan had got split up from his mates, and got attacked in the subway. Ironically, from memory, he was not a blue but went along with his blue mates for the trip. Once in the ground, hooch was getting passed across to City fans from...

    Running thread

    Where is the fun in not completely destroying yourself?? Go fast, get yourself in the pain cave as soon as possible and then suffer for the remaining 40 minutes. Then let yourself go and celebrate with a couple of celery and carrot sticks.

    Dorking Trail (Surrey hills) Half Marathon tomorrow, hoping the weather ‘improves’ as it is far too hot at the minute. All week my running has been off, so not expecting a good race. Legs felt like lead weights at run club on Tuesday so day off Wednesday and then on Thursday had to stop on a...

    Alvarez leaving?

    Yes I agree about the AM roles the likelihood is they would all be superior but not sure how realistic getting one of those players is (except Olmo) and the cost could be prohibitive impacting on other transfer plans. Furthermore we have a number of options in those areas, but with Haaland if he...

    Alvarez leaving?

    Alvarez is by no means the perfect player but not many sides have a squad player as good as him and who can perform in a number of positions. If we can bring someone in better than him who is happy to play second fiddle to Haaland fair enough but at the moment I think we’re fortunate having a...

    Worst away days

    Losing 4-0 at West Brom under Keegan when it appeared we had no chance of getting promoted. Hard to believe, that day, we would go on to have such an incredible season and go up as champions.

    Worst away days

    Yes that was some disappointment. Massive following, great atmosphere and the more chances we missed (or the more times we hit the woodwork) the more inevitable the defeat became. Digging out the keeper Steve Cherry?? for his weight certainly came back to bite us and Tommy Johnson was electric...

    Worst away days

    Yes went to that as well and then headed over to Blackburn afterwards who were facing Leeds. The gulf in standard felt enormous. The only thing I remember about the match was the bloke on the tannoy announcing a Blackpool sub and he called him the ‘wonderboy, cue ironic cheering from the City...

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    Be interesting to see how he develops and where he is this time next year. I did not know that much about him until our trip to Selhurst Park and he really stood out that day. Seeing him live, his positioning, desire for the ball, control etc was really impressive.

    Dani Olmo

    Think he is more polished than Dembele ever was but Sane is a fair comparison as I thought he had the world at his feet and his ceiling was also ridiculously high. Either way we spent 55 million euros on Nunes last summer and so it hardly seems a gamble in comparison. Worst case scenario we...

    Dani Olmo

    Yes unpredictable I agree but I reckon, and this is only a hunch, when we look back in 10 years Neco Williams career will have outstripped those as players. Not often you get the chance to pick someone up like him at a decent fee, should snap their hand off.

    Dani Olmo

    Fair question and I am only really judging him on these euros but he just looks like he has it all as a player and at the price, and the ceiling he has as a player, I think you just have to make it work. Danny Olmo for me is a very good player but Neco Williams looks like potentially he could...

    Dani Olmo

    As a kid I remember Phil Babb having a great World Cup. I’m in the undecided camp on this one. Clearly a very talented player but If we had a chance of the two I would be spending the money on Neco Williams personally. Of course if KDB or Bernardo decided to move on prioritise might change...

    Running thread

    Yes I think it is. Also not watching the kilometres being ticked off every 4/5/6 minutes I reckon is tough mentally because tiredness will still kick in early, so facing another say 10 hours must be hard to get your head around. Such great training though, just tough to commit the time. I will...

    Yes tremendous. We could all learn a few life lessons from Ryley.

    Happy Birthday Kinky

    At 48 years of age a lot of games blur into the memory but quite a few, because of Kinky, from that era I can remember like it was yesterday. Great memories, thanks Georgiou.

    Running thread

    Well done mate, great effort especially with the hills involved although I appreciate that was not the primary motive. Very true about the walking, no idea why but a 10k run seems much easier than a 10k walk. I keep saying I need to get out walking long distances more, for time on feet, but...
