    Your Dumbest Match-Day Comment

    I normally confine myself to either shouting loudly at defenders preparing to shoot from too far out - Kompany v Leicester, or Walker v Newcastle for example, or offering set piece advice - "Don't let Flower / Spanish Dave have it" (Ipswich & Newcastle). (In my defence, prior to recently...

    Left Back?

    Been set a task by a fellow blue - name the best City starting 11 that I have ever witnessed playing live Now I started going around 1972, so I've seen a player or two, but call me old fashioned, I'm stumped for a left back Obviously I know the answer isn't Angelino, Brightwell (D), Tarnat or...

    No Go Mo

    Just nipped to little Tesco for milk and the boy wanted some coke (to drink - stop it) Went for Pepsi Max (same horse, different jockey) as was cheaper (not won the Pools) Had to return to the shelf however, having got part-way to the till, when I spotted Mo Salah's ugly mug on the side of...

    Acceptable Scousers?

    Buoyed by escaping reasonably unscathed from starting an Acceptable Rags thread a while ago, and admittedly somewhat bored at present, I wonder if anybody could propose an answer to the above, should such an entity exist? I regret that former Manchester City players or managers cannot be...

    If you could change one thing

    If you could change one thing about football, what would it be? For many years my bug-bear has been the lack of multi-balls in the Premier League Saturday's league game v Spurs, however, has convinced me that if I had the power to change one thing, it would be to make football a summer sport -...

    If City played in the World Cup

    How would we fare? (Just to confirm the rules, our boys all turn out for us as opposed to their countries) Clearly better than England (you don't say) Who would beat us? I'm thinking semi's at least In fact, I'm getting the word Winners

    Worst / Weirdest City Chant

    There I was bored to tears by yet another sodding International break, contemplating that the David Silva chant is not very much to my liking and that a far better opportunity was glaringly obvious in the form of 'Silva is Gold, Silva is Gold, Hello, Hello', to the tune of City Aggro, obs. Got...

    Slowest ever City player

    According to the MUEN, Leroy is the fastest ever, but much more importantly, who is the slowest you have seen? I'll start off with Tommy Hutch, though David Brightwell and Ricky Holden would both give him a good run for their money

    Deadline Day Drama - City Memories

    My favourite has to be the probable urban myth of Mark Bright disappearing into the Peak Forest until the deadline had passed and it was safe to come out, when (a not very good at the time) City were trying to prise him away from Sheff Wednesday! What's yours?

    The Most Unpopular Signing

    In light of Mr Evans' thread going somewhat viral, who do you think would be our most unpopular signing, (but would probably improve our squad), both historically and the present day? I'll start off with two lovely fellas: Roy Keane & Christiano Ronaldo
