    Mr Farke

    Agree on the favourite manager ever.

    Mr Farke

    Absolutely. He’s a fantastic coach, he’s got us playing the best football I’ve ever witnessed a City side play in my lifetime, he develops our kids and the older players have all improved at an astounding rate. He’s a genuine guy and comes across as thoughtful, reflective and intelligent, but has a sense of humour. What’s not to like?

    Stat attack

    Thought it would be good to have a centralised place for all the tidbit stats that we get. They normally start off in their own thread but then get lost and forgotten (for example there was one about pukki vs Harry Kane in games against Liverpool but it’s lost in the ether of the forum now). Key here is context though, so when adding to the thread, please make it clear whether the stat refers to a game or the season as a whole, and which game if it’s an individual match. No need to go looking for stats but if you spot one worth sharing, add it here. ill start with this. Mo Leitner completed more passes over the 90 minutes than the entire Newcastle midfield combined (93 to 81). [Newcastle at home]

    Funny that, as I suggested that was probably a major factor in signing him when it happened, and a few choice muppets absolutely rubbished the suggestion as Webber and Farke wouldn't possibly have followed up on anything that happened before they arrived, they ripped literally everything up and started from scratch apparently.

    Not defending Jack at all, he deserves what he's got and more... however, the irony is our PM is a terrorist with far more blood on his hands, someone you have lauded. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/11/johnson-allowed-arms-sales-to-saudis-after-strike-on-food-factory

    Aye it was, bullet header off a Whittaker cross/shot. I ended up sat next to 2 of your lot in the home end who were total tosspots. Aggressive to everyone and stewards/police did FA about it - it was pathetic. Won't hold it against you though, every club has it's fair share of kn0bs and you seem to have far less of them than the perpetual victims across Stanley park - so welcome! Always good to see another perspective on things. He did actually score another goal for us btw - at Rotherham in the cup - A small claim to fame is I'm amongst a very select number who were there to see both his goals live

    James Norwood - No words

    Not even original. “Stone cold” Steve Austin was doing that 20 years ago in WWF.

  10. Have a short layover for a couple of hours on the way back from Shanghai to Heathrow. There's only one choice of t-shirt for this occasion.... be interesting to see how many Finns spot it!

    Flying through Helsinki tomorrow...

    In Helsinki, off the plane 5 mins and already the air hostesses and security guy were big fans of the shirt. We got fast tracked through security... either due to having a 2 year old with us or for the shirt. My money is on the shirt.

    Yep, that's why the USA has such a low homicide rate right?

    Cantwell

    I've said numerous times that I thought this would be a season too early for him and he should be going out on loan. Absolutely delighted to be proven wrong - he was very good against Liverpool and yesterday was his best display in a City shirt - he was absolutely brilliant. Really pleased that he's stepped up to the plate in a big way - think something psychologically about being given Wessi's number has really clicked with him - given what Wes did for this club, it was quite a big show of faith and support from the club to pass that particular torch over to one of our kids stepping up to the big stage. He spoke about how much it meant to him to have that number, and it seems to have had the desired impact. He looks streets ahead of where he was last year in his development. The next challenge for him is to keep this up consistently but he really is coming along at a phenomenal pace - full credit to him, he's obviously working hard off the pitch and reaping the rewards on it.

    So now he's priceless plus £2mill? No amount of money could tempt me to sell him at the moment. Critical to the way we play.

    Thats an unbelievable goal and a good half - totally dominant.

    Haha - I'll be watching this via a dodgy stream from the other side of the world - Shanghai, China where it is now 9:37 PM. Peru is on my travel list - enjoy. Greetings from the future btw.

    Was trying to sort this out but currently in China and couldn’t make it work even with vpn. Could you please inbox me details of how to set it up please? I’m just going to stream tonight on the generic sites but I’m keen to get Optus up and running when I get back to UK next week.

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Indeed. I did pastoral for 4 years in schools before I did my teacher training. One kid who was always in trouble decided one day he was going to push a female teacher over... I called the parent and said you need to pick him up as he was being excluded for 3 days. It took multiple attempts and over an hour trying to call for him to even answer the phone and when he did, I explained the situation and his response was ‘I’m not coming to get him and he’ll be in school tomorrow. When he’s at home, he’s my ****ing problem, when he’s at school he is your ****ing problem’ and hung up. He eventually turned up 3 hours later and didn’t send his kid to school the next day, but he seemed to believe the school was entirely at fault and we should have put up with his kid coming in and assaulting staff for no reason.

    I would add poor parenting to the mix Herman. As a teacher, we see some abysmal ‘parenting’ and then people wonder why the youth are off the rails and knife crime is exponentially growing etc. It starts at home. Cutting Surestart certainly hasn’t helped the issue.

    You can still get radio commentary Cantiaci, although there will be a multitude of streams for every game available elsewhere

    I'm going to make a trip up North for this one.
  25. https://www.skysports.com/efl/championship/video/11782223/southend-1-3-blackpool Jesus Christ - terrible defending and then compounded with an absolute assault. Why on earth we ever signed him is beyond me, he's just not a competent footballer. Glad we're shot of him and never have to see him in a City shirt again - atrocious footballer and an absolute thug by the looks of things - he put Tom Cairney out for 6 months in 2012 after a similar assault.
