    Bus parking for beginners

    The quiet triumphalism of Pep signing what is in effect (given that we’re only 8 games into this campaign) a 3 year deal on Thursday, lasted about 48 hours. As long as it took for Jose Mourinho to become the latest manager to exploit an Achilles Heel so large it would probably require a boot...

    Toots Hibbert RIP

    One for those of us of a certain age. Last saw Toots &the Maytals at the Barbican a couple of years ago. Quality to the end. RIP https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-54129388

    Top towns for Boozers

    At this moment I’m out on the ale in Brighton, and I actually think it might be Britain’s greatest town in terms of the sheer number of small, top quality, boozers on offer. Rye’s terrific if sloping floors and Tudor timbers are your thing, and the pubs in the Holborn/Fleet Street area of London...

    Once a Blue

    https://www.mancity.com/news/first-team/first-team-news/2018/april/kolarov-and-dzeko-celebrate-citys-title-win Apologies if there's already a thread on this, but great to see how much Kola and Bosnian Bob still love the club (despite the stick they got from some quarters). All 'we' and 'us'...

    Mental fatigue

    Simple (ish) question. Is the season starting to catch up with us mentally as much as physically? We’ve had a long run of injuries that has meant several key players (KDB, Ferna, Sané, Sterling, El General) playing in virtually every game, and that has exacted an inevitable toll physically, but...

    Presenters and pundits who should be “retired” immediately

    Oh my God, I’ve just died and gone to hell. Talkshite this morning not only has the appalling Jim White on, but Mercury has finally aligned with Jupiter in the long search for the wearer of the other half of the “world’s most boring cnut” amulet, in the form of Bob Wilson as special guest...

    Watford (A)

    I believe they sold out at 16000 points this morning, so should be safe to start a thread...... I need 2 for this, but will happily take singles. Grateful if anyone who winds up with a spare could drop me a message

    Important musical moments......

    With the possible exception of The Beatles touching down in the USA for the first time and virtually single-handedly lifting America out of its post JFK assassination induced despair, it's hard to think of a more significant moment in musical history than that which happened 40 years ago...

    Great axe men - Scotty Moore

    All hail Scotty Moore. RIP to a true legend.....

    Taking fans for granted

    It wouldn't be unreasonable, all things considered, to suggest that we have the best owners in world football. They've invested huge sums of money in the squad, bought out the club's debt, regenerated the local area, built a fabulous academy, and despite the best efforts of the rag and dipper...

    Clown car defending

    There's admittedly probably a tendency for it not to register when opposition defenders fuck up, but is there any other team, not just in the Premier League but in Europe, whose back 4 attempts to commit ritual suicide with such astonishing regularity as ours? I'm not talking about being exposed...

    The Beatles sessions tour 2016

    http://www.thesessionslive.com/the-show/ I went to see this in Brighton last night and it will be touring the UK and Europe as an event for the next 6 weeks or so. If you're in any way, shape or form a Beatles fan, I would heartily recommend you go and see it (Manchester Arena is on May 8th)...

    An Englishman abroad........

    I should just preface what is an habitual lament, by stating that taking over a foreign town with hundreds and hundreds of singing, drinking, City supporting mates (plus a bit of culture if you feel so inclined) always makes for a good day out. The Champions League match day 'experience' abroad...

    Great moments in musical history captured on film.......

    The only existing film of the Beatles before they'd released any records, playing 'Some Other Guy' in the Cavern Club in August 1962. Granada TV returned a month later to film them again doing 'Kansas City', but the footage wasn't clear enough for general release. Even here it lurches from...

    Counterattacking, tempo and pace (Champions League)

    We've been in the Champions League for 4 seasons now, and yet last night looked every bit as naïve and vulnerable as we did on our debut against Napoli in 2011. Despite having been the best side in England over the course of those 4 seasons in terms of points accumulated and trophies won, our...

    Home grown players (merged)

    On the day that we've signed Fernando and Bruno Zuculini, the rags have signed Luke Shaw, and Adam Lallana's having a medical at Candlepool. I think the World Cup constituted fair proof that most English players are overpriced and/or shite, but as an avenue for post FFP attack, are we leaving...

    Etihad Player of the Year

    Apologies if there's already a thread on this, but voting is now open on mcfc.co.uk via Facebook. I suspect that a certain someone, who should have won by a landslide, pissed over his own chips so thoroughly last week that he may well now finish a distant and unloved second to Spanish Dave.......

    Real Fair Play

    No great surprise that as well as getting stitched up in the Financial Fair Play stakes, we fared no better at the disciplinary version. <a class="postlink" href="http://www.espnfc.com/stats/fairplay/_/league/eng.1/barclays-premier-league?cc=5739" onclick="window.open(this.href);return...

    Adam Lallana

    Can't believe this guy doesn't have a thread of his own. Outstanding yesterday, and outstanding down at theirs. If we were to buy Mangala, Fernando and Lallana in the summer, I'd be one happy camper.
