  1. This post has got my paranoia going.

    maybe Webber is ‘comfortable’ with Farke’s contract situation because he knows when he moves he can just take Farke with him!!

    sure the board won’t be that stupid but I really wish we had Farke all signed up so worst case scenario we get some decent compensation to fund a new manager!

    Agreed but icing on the top for me is went with my brother who is a Man City fan 😂

    3-2 win at the Etihad.  Last game of the season, nothing to play for. Holt's last goal? Howson' solo goal and the Man C. players doing a lap of appreciation in an empty Stadium because their plastics had all left early once they realized they weren't going to win. Priceless. 


  3. Good point about Nelson and Warkins in that clip. Just as significant the reference to Thompson who lives 2 doors a way from Nelson but made it in.

    That very short clip tells you a hell of a lot about those players and Farke.

    It’s one of the reasons I’m prepared to give Farke time and stick with him. And also why I wouldn’t have Nelson anywhere near the first team again.

  4. I don’t think we’ve been that bad. Decent start and we’ve had a few chances.

    We just have sone big weaknesses....Krul and Pinto are looking real liabilities and seriously think we need to look at loan replacements.

    I’m also at a bit of a loss with Leitner just don’t know what he is contributing.

    But still have hope we could get something out of this game

  5. The one thing I don’t understand is why we are persisting with McGovern on the bench. Given it is highly unlikely we will ever use a sub goalkeeper I’d give that position to a home grown keeper. Surely it’s a risk worth taking to have the best possible outfield players on the bench?

  6. For me it’s a squad with a lot of unknowns but some real potential.

    If, and I accept it may be a big if at this stage, 2 or 3 of: Marshall, Leitner, Rhodes, Hernandez and Pukki really fulfill their potential they could be inspirational.

    Couple of them really on fire and could easily be in play offs.

    For some reason I’m more excited about this squad and the season than I was last year. Apart from Maddison, and none of us really knew how brilliant he’d end up being, there wasn’t much to be excited about.

    This year I think we could have a few players who can excite the crowd and motivate the team.

    I’m going to stay in the glass half full camp until at least 10 games in!

  7. What I am unclear on is the returned back to training late comment.

    I might have missed it but why didn’t he start with everyone else?

    IF it was a case of him just not bothering to turn up then I wouldn’t take him to Germany either as would clearly be a disruptive influence.

    He has the capability to be a good player but there’s hardly a long queue of clubs wanting to buy him or he’d be gone by now.
