BringBackSwales said:My memory may be playing tricks, it usually does, but I thought that Peter Reid took over a team battling relegation, got us to successive 6th placed finishes, then about half way up the league the year after, and then got bulleted by my namesake about 3 games into the season after that?city 'til i cry said:First and foremost Peter Reid is a good guy and is great to listen to when he's a on as a pundit.
However his time at City is looked back on through rose tinted glasses. He inherited a team that under Kendall was on the brink of achievement and progresively it got worse each season the more it became his team. Baffling sales and even more baffling buys plus the over reliance on Niall Quinns head made for some of the worst style football over the last 20 years. McMahon was over the hill and Ricky Holden was too slow to get to the hill in the first place. Plus he sold Steve Redmond my hero at the time and Neil Pointon to get Holden, and treated Clive Allen like shit in favour of Adrian fucking Heath.
I'm sorry but Peter Reid was far better as a player than a mangager for us.
Your memory is playing tricks Kendall turn the team battling relegation to a top team
