    Your most personally moving moment in sports history (apart from City)

    This obviously excludes anything to do with City. We all know that 99% of posters would choose something from City's history, most probably 93:20. The reason why I'm starting this is that, for the umpteenth time, I've just watched Red Rum win his third at Aintree. Now I'm not even a racing fan...

    Netflix documentary on Pelé

    Ok, I don't want to flog a horse that's probably long dead about who has been the greatest footballer of all time. It's good to debate, but impossible to resolve. Pitches have changed. Radically. Football has changed, radically. There's also a question of perception. Just about every one of...

    Trying to get some distance from VAR

    O.K. As it stands, and as it has been applied this season, it has been a disaster. I'm a balanced enough individual not to have enjoyed it when a rank injustice has been done to another team on the pitch in our favour (there have been precious little of that sort, I know, but there have in fact...

    Who is the most miserable c**t on this entire forum?

    Now come on, don't brag. You're not allowed to nominate yourself.

    Talk show hosts

    Don't know if this really merits its own thread, but we'll see if it touches a nerve. I've been skipping around on Youtube looking at snippets from talk shows. More than usual, for the obvious reason. I don't own a tv and have never in my life owned one (this feels a bit like the formal...

    What's the most you've ever paid for a sports event ticket?

    Seeing the prices of the Club Wembley tickets still available got me to thinking about this. Now I'm very lucky, through a contact I've got a ticket for £70. That of course skews my outlook. I look at that price (i.e. £250) and I think, “Nah, there's no way I'd pay that”. But actually, pushing...

    The full back problem. Are City on it?

    Just wondering, because I've been reading in today's Equipe that there's this lad Sofiane Alakouch (only 18) who's been having a blistering season at right back for Nîmes Olympique. Apparently the bigger clubs in French Ligue 1 are already on to him and looking to prise him away. PSG, Marseille...

    Round-the-world air trips

    OK, here's the thing. I love travelling, and have done an awful lot of it over the last twelve years or so, all over the world. Two years or so off retirement, and I'm now planning The Big One to go out with a bang (because I really won't have the readies to envisage any such thing once I'm no...

    Insomnia

    Anybody else suffer from it? I woke up at five fucking thirty and I most definitely didn't want to. I find as I get older this is happening more and more frequently (a natural tendency, so I'm told) Apart from cranking up the computer and see what's happening on BM (very quiet), I'm curious to...

    The Pep 'Survivor List'

    Watching that performance — or whatever you want to call it — yesterday got me to thinking who, in my opinion, will definitely survive of this squad, once Pep is in. Now I'm not saying the clear-out will be all at one fell swoop, this summer. But I believe that these players, and these only, are...

    The Pep 'Survivor List' (Senior and Junior (loanee) players)

    Watching that performance — or whatever you want to call it — yesterday got me to thinking who, in my opinion, will definitely survive of this squad, once Pep is in. Now I'm not saying the clear-out will be all at one fell swoop, this summer. But I believe that these players, and these only, are...

    This transfer window and the "Yaya problem"

    Now anyone with eyes to see can see that Yaya's legs over the last season or so are not what they were. That's not slagging him off, it's just recognising biology. He's still an immense player for us. Time and again against Watford, I noticed him making first-touch passes to people in better...

    Can this season be compared to the 'hangover' season

    Trying to get a bit of distance after the flak since Saturday. I’m thinking, obviously, of 2012-13. I’d be interested to hear other people’s take on this. Now that my knee has stopped jerking after that abject performance on Saturday, and having thought it over carefully, with all things...

    Jack Bruce. The passing of a legend.

    Eric was a great blues guitarist. Ginger was a terrific drummer. But Jack was the total musician - wonderful singer, killer bassist, brilliant composer. All in all, one of the finest musicians of my generation or any other. I mourn him.

    What's a reasonable time scale for winning the CL?

    Somebody mentioned to me the other day that the Arse had now qualified seventeen seasons for the CL since its reorganisation. They've never yet won it. The rags qualified through most of the nineties, finally won it in 1999. Chelsea had to wait for about a decade. Off the top of my head, I'd say...
