Closer to Edge of the Dog Fight after Wigan Defeat

A very scrappy game which failed to even get close to making a spark, the one one real shot on target went in, Lee Camp will be feeling a little down about it, he really should have saved that. Keepers should very rarely be beaten on the near post, but in saying that, there was enough time and space for challenges to have been made and fancy flic [...]

Diakite & Van Ginkel

The good old Sun has us beating Liverpool to the signing of Lazio's Modibo Diakite, if you were like me, not knowing too much about him I went to Wiki. To save posting a seemingluy endless amount of blurb, I satisfy myself with. Diakité plays as a central defender and is a good reader of the play as well as having a strong physical p [...]

Wolfswinkel - Not A Done Deal Yet !

Weimann Interesting Hughton

The mail online this morning has an interesting article one I would like very much to see come off.   According to them City are more than interested in signing Andreas Weimann, whose talks about a new deal with Aston Villa have stalled. There is some milage to go before we see this happen, a few things will have to be sorted, if Vill [...]

Bunn Appeal Rejected

City fans need no reminding Bunn's sending off, the club had appealed the decision of referee Chris Foy to show the keeper a straight red, but an independent regulatory commission appointed by the FA upheld the original decision. Bunn, will now miss the Premier League clash with Wigan after the international break.

Grigg and Burke in Hughton's Radar

According to the Mirror, City are joined by Southampton  as  being interested in Walsall striker Will Grigg,  who is out of contract in the summer.  City are also said to have lined up a move for Birmingham's Chris Burke.

Officials Take the Limelight Again

A massive hard earned point, a first class effort. A game that was over shadowed by 3 very dubious decision by the officials, first the Bunn sending off,  the ball clearly hit Bunn in the lower chest and hit the underside of his arm. How any advantage could be attained by that I have no idea, how that can even be classed as deliberate again [...]

Korey To Oldham

Good Luck to Korey Smith who has joined Oldham on a month's loan. He is yet to play for the Canaries this season and will relish the opportunity to get some competitive minutes under his belt. A lad I like as he has some fight and passion about him....Good Luck Korey

Wolfswinkel Crops Up Again

A little early for any serious transfer rumours, but this one continues to circulate around the internet, just how much stock we can put into right now I am unsure. Probably more a case of this latest rumour having more to do with the January interest shown by City. Talksport reported yesterday that City are going to make a £10 mill offer [...]

Another Point ..After More of The Same

While yesterday's game was another one to forget, it was another point towards safety,  I could sit and go on about the players struggled throughout the game,  how 3 efforts at the goal, is a paltry amount,  how Snodgras and Holt should have scored. How the players look almost scared to set foot out of thier own half at times.. [...]

It's Only Man U ...

Does everywhere seems a little quiet today, even the City feed on Newsnow are full of Man Utd sites postings, Lets be honest, were we going to really get anything from this fixture ?   We may have got a little lucky and caught them with more minds on Tuesday and Sir Alex resting over half his team.  We could have been really up f [...]
