    Rumblings of discontent..

    [quote user="nutty nigel"]

    You think it''s a waste Winky? Last season''s or this?




    Your tendency to give posters diminutive nicknames is extremely irritating. You like to think it makes you seem like "friendly old Nigel", when in reality it''s a completely transparent and rather childish way of trying to belittle others and, therein, their point of view.

    Jeff on canary call

    Wants Hughton sacked. After putting three past the most expensively assembled team on the planet, in their back yard.

    Absolute bellend.

    Hughton opinions now?

    Are you on drugs, Webbo? You''re posting utter bilge mate. Literally, complete nonsense.

    Howson's goal...

    It was certainly up there. If you look at great City goals over the years many have been about sheer power or the element of surprise. This was pure, top class technique. With the neat 1-2 beforehand and the finish, it brought to mind some of Thierry Henry''s most famous goals for Arsenal. It was that good.

    Hughton opinions now?

    We''re only a point off last year''s "heroic" season under Lambert with a game to go. QPR and Reading aside, there''s been much less to separate the bottom 6 or 7 teams this year.Hughton has bought well so far so I''ve confidence in him this Summer. With RVW already wrapped up (impressive in its own right) I hope we''ll sign some players - a central passer/creator somewhere between Fox and Hoolahan, and a winger or two with pace - to deliberately get the best out of him.That all said, if we''re 6-10 games into next season with Tettey and Johnson both still deployed deep, Hoolahan/a new CM not starting regularly, and RVW isolated up front on his own, it''s time we move on to a more adventurous manager.Pochettino''s early success seems to have faded but I understand Southampton''s rationale. Get a homegrown manager to build a solid foundation, then turn to the continent to add a more technical attacking approach. There''s no doubt he''ll be signing players Adkins wouldn''t have a hope of finding, and you''ll likely see some unknown Spanish talents next year and Saints will be an extremely strong, continental-style attacking outfit. I wouldn''t mind a future like that for NCFC.
  7. Agreed. Have a soft spot for Spurs too, and the opposite for Wenger.

    This is bonkers. Had to double check the date on your first post. Even now I feel like some trickery has been involved!
  9. Does that sound like hyperbole?

    Is this the biggest game in our recent history, and possibly ever?

    When we look back in years to come I just have the feeling that we''ll see it exactly like that, whether our mission proves successful or not.

    Even compared to the obscene wealth of this league just 5 years ago, the financial benefits of being part of it will be absolutely unprecedented. Wth the new TV deal, this is the moment. Right now. Stay up and we really could set our club up for the next 10 years and even far beyond. No second chances.

    Does anyone miss the Championship?

    Good post. Maybe its a win/win. We all want all the benefits of the Prem, but being a bigger fish in the Championship and challenging for things week in, week out isn''t all that bad, either.
  11. The difference between us and established Premier League sides is they have pace in their sides, and we don''t.

    Tactical Nous

    It''s not even about tactical nous. Hughton has just bled the confidence out of the team, drip by drip, like a leaking radiator.

    He's gone....

    The forum''s oldest and heaviest contributor and still talking absolute rubbish. It''s unprecedented.
  14. He simply doesn''t have confidence in our attacking midfield and forwards. The plan is to scrape enough draws with everyone playing within themselves.

    As I said yesterday this is total folly - even if we *do* stay up our attacking players go into next season a shadow of their former selves, knowing full well they''re not rated or trusted. Unless the plan is to replace our entire attacking unit next year, it''s a unbelievably myopic strategy.

    Hughton out - my reasons

    Fantastic post, OP. Can''t wait to hear the ''painfully moderate'' happy clappers'' response to this.
