  1. I'm gonna do it. I'm going to be the callous bastard. How many of these are there going to be? There was one at Wolves for a fan who'd died. Has it become the default thing now that we have a minute's applause for anyone whose family put their head above the parapet and ask for one? It's totally diluting the minute's applause to something where people sit and clap their hands when they have no idea what's going on, merely joining in with the crowd.

  4. 1. The vote to Leave in March was also delayed by about 100 Tory MPs who wanted a Harder Brexit or No Deal. The delay wasn't just caused by "Remainers". 2. The democratic vote to Leave has not been blocked, only delayed due to disagreements about its terms. It is still the default position. 3. Most of those "Remainers" who delayed Brexit were prepared to compromise on Soft Brexit terms of various kinds. There is no mandate for any specific form of Brexit, only for Brexit - blame Cameron for that. 4. Those who wanted a second referendum hoped that it would re

  5. How do you honestly think this helps anything? You said exactly this in different words earlier this week and when I questioned it you've been radio silence since, apparently other than posting another boring wind-up merchant post designed to get negative attention that's adding nothing to the discourse. It really doesn't matter whether you're Remain or Leave, I'd like to see the more sensible and moderate posters on here who've had rather constructive debate over the last couple of dates actively oppose this kind of attention-seeking because its ultimately poisoning an

  6. These are quotes from the 2017 Tory and Labour manifestos: Tories: "As we leave the European Union, we want to negotiate a new, deep and special partnership with the EU, which will allow free trade between the UK and the EU's member states. As part of the agreement we strike, we want to make sure that there are as few barriers to trade and investment as possible". Labour: "We will scrap the Conservatives’ Brexit White Paper and replace it with fresh negotiating priorities that have a strong emphasis on retaining the benefits of the Single Market and the Customs Union –

  7. The contents of the debates, which are non existant, wont have changed peoples minds. But the contents of reality, which has been subtly shifted numerous times by the leave side surely should have done. The turning point for most people really had to have been when people started saying they EXPECTED job losses, financial and other disruption, and this was backed by impact studies and documents like Yellowhammer, describing how our lives were going to get worse. These were coming from the civil service for a government telling us we had to leave because it w

  9. condolences to OP and family. Whilst I think there should be a way to celebrate the life of those city faithful who have died over the year, I don’t think a minutes applause is the way to do it. There’s one every week these days and not only does it dilute the minutes applause we have for former foxes who’ve had an impact on all of our lives but it dilutes every minutes applause for fans too. They’ll end up meaningless. For those who who share this opinion, or want to know where my opinion stems from this post is worth a read: https://www.vice.com/am

  10. Some kind of annual memorial day might be a nice idea for City fans who have died over the past year. The problem with these in-game gestures is that some get going, whereas others don't. What do the families of the applauses that don't get going take from that? That their loved ones weren't worth as much as others in the eyes of 30,000 people in a stadium? Like I say, the whole phenomenon makes me feel uncomfortable and it seems to be almost every home game where there's an appeal for people to get involved in one now.

The Brexiteers and super rich and hedge funds will take the UK for all it can. This goes beyond borders. The time to argue is over and realise that we've all been played and we should unite to stop Brexit. If you still want Brexit do a little research into how Hitler came into power and then into Cambridge Analytica and Domminic Cummins. Look into the election fraud, w

  15. Condolences to OP and Darren's family. However, I'm with those who think a minutes applause isn't entirely suitable. For me, it's something that should only be reserved for those very special circumstances - such as when someone close/integral to the club passes (i.e. Vichai, an esteemed club legend, or even in rare cases notable fans like Bradley Lowery), or potentially if a fan tragically dies at the match, as has happened before. I'd rather see us turn the last home game of each season into a 'remembrance' fixture, with a minute or two of applause whilst the n

  17. Having a super busy morning at work yet the manager who started 2h after me finds time for a couple of smoke breaks - each about 10 mins - instead of helping to catch up. Then after fag break number 3 (so 30 mins of break time by now) and before I've even had my actual break (which is only 20 mins btw), she starts talking about needing her break. Anybody who doesn't count smokes into their allotted break time is a huge cvnt.

  23. personally can't see what solace or relevance 30,000 people clapping (if everyone joins in) provides when losing a loved one. if someone I went to the football with passed away the last thing I'd really be concerned with is asking a stadium of random, unconnected people to clap in their 'remembrance'. I also think it's a bit weird having to make everyone think about death when they're at a leisure activity like watching the football. a glass raised on the park in the sun would be more personal and fitting before heading to the match, imo. every

  24. I suppose the big problem is that a city fan under the age of 93 probably dies before each game, so we could conceivably be doing a few rounds of applause every week, as harsh as it sounds. maybe a picture on the big board with a condolences message instead?

  31. There was so much good with that team that finished last season. Outside Man City we probably had the best CM in the league with Maddison & Tielemans working in tandem and Ndidi filling in behind. The best full backs in the league outside Liverpool. Vardy is up there with the best strikers. For me the positions we really lacked behind the top clubs was the two wingers/inside forwards. I thought Barnes had every chance to progress to being one of those. Not a lot needed fixing in that team so I'm baffled why BR has messed around with it. In Brendan we trust

  32. Sorry but I find this comment hard to take. There are lots of us who have followed the city for more years than many on here have even been on the planet, and for various reasons find it difficult, or even impossible, to get to games. What about those of us who work away from home, unsociable hours/weekends etc. Not to mention those more unfortunate fans who are elderly, disabled or simply cannot afford the price of a ticket, never mind the travel costs etc and their only way to actually watch their team is on TV? I get that moving fixtures for TV can be a right royal pain, espec

  33. Here we go then...Bournemouth up next. It'd be ideal to pick up three points against a team we've struggled to get results against in the past. Five points in total against Wolves, Chelsea & Sheff Utd is good, just hoping for an attacking performance and a win ahead of the international break. We'd have made a strong start on that basis. I expect Bournemouth to leave themselves open at times with their attacking tendancies so we should be able to find holes in their defence, if we play with proper wingers anyway. We'd be able to push YT/JM further up the pitc

  42. I’ve played the game thank you. For far to long and far too much according to my legs. The ball is hiding the gap between Chodurys foot and the ball, that’s not the point of contact, now assuming you’ve played the game specifically as a defender you’ll know when you launch a slide challenge That’s the kind of position your in about half a second before you do make contact, his right leg should be extended With his left leg tucked up. now to put this to bed the actual point of contact is above, both with Ritchie making contact with the ball and hamser making contact w

Urban.Spaceman returns to work after his holiday and shows how much contempt he has for his job by streaming the football instead. People still complain we should have signed Ake for £75m and Fraser for £50m despite Ake scoring an own goal, Perez scoring and Fraser injuring himself in Hamza's tackle. Ian Stringer tells the boys and girls what Piper's had for lunch at least twice.
