City Late Show Starts Moyes Whinging

That was a little bit special yesterday not only because we won, because we also saw a more attacking line up, early changes, a player who actually gave the whole crowd a buzz  finally because the players took upon themselves to get the victory.   Hughton admitted it was difficult, should he be satisfied with a point or go for al [...]

Chris Martin To Derby on Loan

It looks likely that Chris Martin will be going out on loan again, this time to Derby County,   reports suggest that he will start off with an initial one month deal which will be reviewed.  After an absolutely uninspiring time at Swindon I am a little surprised that a championship club are interested.

On The Edge

In a small article Harry, is forecasting a 37 point safety mark, he said if he was offered that now he would take it.   He needs his team to claw 20 points from their remaining games.   they have taken 26 games to get 17 points, they have 12 games to get the 20. We sit on 29 points  needing another 11pts to get to the 4 [...]

Uninspiring, Clueless

Another uninspiring clueless game, we had to endure in the hope Hughton would finally wake up as a manager and do something positive.   Some will say that is another point towards safety,  but we should be talking here of being 3 points towards safety. We were the home side, although anyone not knowing the teams could easily have [...]

It Was a Save..Not a Miss You Muppets !

I said yesterday that all the talk and headlines will be how Taarabt missed the penalty. and I wasn't proved wrong, MotD was no exception ,but then do we expect compliments from that shower isn't;  about time the BBC went back to just having the games screened and stop paying inflated wages to these over opinionated old has beens .

Sticky Bunn .. As Keeper earns Top Mark

What a shame that that Taarbt's penalty will steal the headlines going down as a miss,  But Mark Bunn deserves all the credit for a top save, he gave the kick away with a sort of body check trip with the knee, which I think was a little soft. but he read Taarbt perfectly dining low to his left.  A day when both keepers stole the l [...]

Norwich City Chief Executive David McNally says the club did not make a £9.2 million bid for Celtic striker Gary Hooper. In a tweet issued today McNally says "I really don't know anything about a £9.2m bid for any player because we didn't make it." I can't say many actually believed that City did, when the ne [...]

More A Peep Hole

The following was taken from our forum.... I think it sums up how a lot of City Fans are feeling this morning. What a massive let down that all was in the end. It has been glaringly obvious from very early in the season that we were short of genuine Premiership talent in the striking department. Only Holt and Morison (a bit) approached the r [...]
