After being warned by the Irish FA to get out and see other Irish players, Giovanni Trapatonni was seen at Carrow Road the other week.   Now  Wes Hoolahan has been called up to fill out the forward options for the upcoming friendly against Greece. It is a step in the right direction for Hoolahan's International career, but we [...]

The Terrific Travelling Yellow Army

Not being able to get to Villa Park on Saturday, I settled myself down on the recliner with an endless stream of coffee in readiness to watch the anticipated match. I was concerned that the marvelous travelling army would give Lambert the verbal roasting that many of us perhaps wanted to, but time has moved on and so have the teams, sadly the n [...]

What Should Been

It won't be that often, that I will feel disappointed to pick up only a point away from home, but I am today, we had more than enough chances to have ran out 3 or 4 to one winners; against a very poor Villa side who look lost and have not that much idea. Hoolahan, and Holt need to sharpen up a little during the week,  other teams not a [...]

Forget Lambertgate and Concentrate on Football

The media is having a field day with today's game, it isn't so much about football as what is going on off the field, I would hazard a guess that's the only reason the Sky camera's are at Villa Park today.  I hope that all the off field  Shenanigans won't be allowed to over shadow the actual game. There has been a [...]

Monday Morning and still Buzzing

Monday morning is here and I still feel like I am floating in some football dream world, to help me keep floating,  I read around the net.  You can be forgiven for thinking that City have all but ended Arsenal's league challenge and put a huge dent into everything else.   It is one game there is still over 3 times as many [...]

It wasn't as Easy as they thought

Perhaps Arsenal thought tonight's work would be all too easy, I know from reading several Arsenal blog the fans certainly thought it was going to be. Just turn up and get the points.   How they got that wrong.  But the headlines will be How Bad Arsenal Were and Not How Good City Were. Had Holt been a little more aware the s [...]

A New Low

After witnessing the scenes from Serbia last night there cannot be many football fans who care about the image of the game who do not want to see the Serbian National Teams banned from all European and World competitions. I went along to the Under 21 game at Carrow Rd last week, I had the feeling that the players were going to be on the end of [...]

Another Heavy Defeat

Another drubbing in London, which is what every expert expected, but going in at half time  we had given a good account of ourselves the scoreline of 3-1 didn't do us justice.  , But in  the second half we just weren't in it, having to resort to an odd break away, and defnding with everything we had. Holt silenced The Bri [...]

Lambert and The Hall of Fame

Ever since the word was leaked about Lambert suing the club, we had been having one or two heated discussions in our forum, over the matter and of course over Paul Lambert. One of the last points made was should a man who is suing the club, have his name proudly displayed in the Hall of Fame, alongside other City greats ? Here are the views o [...]

What Is Accecptable and What Is Not

This was always going to be a tough season, many City followers believe Lambert knew this and decided to jump ship to keep his CV looking pristine,  I can see what they mean but I would not say that Villa was ever going to be easier job than City; as he is finding out. But I wonder if any of us thought that it was going to be quite like th [...]

A Big Three Games

We all must have thought that this season was going to be difficult than last,  but I wonder how many of thought we would be looking at the scenario we are now be facing.    Reproducing a similar feat as last season is out of the question; I am not worried where we finish as long as we simply stay up and I would see that as a mas [...]
