  1. It`s not often you and me agree on anything, but i think you`re absolutely spot on, i couldn`t have put it better myself.
  2. Thats it in a nutshell. The players they would want to give us as part of a swap, are players they are desperate to get rid of, and players that we don`t want. It shows what a sorry state they are in, that apart from the obvious ones, they don`t really have many players we would want.
  3. The next time i hope to see City playing at Wembley is an FA Cup final. I couldn`t even give a shite about the League Cup, been there done that. The FA Cup completes the set domestically in terms of major trophies, plus i`ve been waiting for City to win the FA Cup all my life, and i`m hoping to god to see it before i`m turned to ashes!
  4. Chris Sutton called Brendan Rodgers a judas! Ally McCoist puts him straight!
  5. Right, first of all there is no doubt that with his trusted sidekicks Shaky and Walsh, he done alot for our football club, and we owe him and them alot. I still believe that fantastic as it turned out, in the great escape season, we should never have been in that position in the first place. Pearsons insistance on staying in games rather than going into games with the attacking intent of the previous season, in my opinion, was what led us to be bottom of the league for three quarters of the season. It was only when it got to shit or bust time and we had to win games to stay up, that he let the players off the leash, helped by a change of system too. It was interesting that he chose the 5-3 game against Man Utd that he wanted showing on Goals on Sunday today, because it was while i was walking to that game, that they had a pre match interview with Shaky on Radio Leicester, where he said that the players had gone to see the management in the lead up to the game, and asked if they could really give it a go against United, against the managements initial intentions. As for his appointment at Derby, their fans were excited when he took over, and had high hopes, but basically he was hopeless there, and i believe alot of that was because he didn`t have Shaky and Walsh along side him. In Belgium he has been found wanting again, and i have seen from their fans on here how frustrated they were with him, and he quite rightly was sacked from their club. In regards to signings, Pearson had Steve Walsh along side him to deal with that side,and Pearson trusted his judgement completely, he wasn`t the one scouting those players, thats what he had Walsh for . You talk about the players that were brought in that have gone onto great things, but Harry Kane was played on the wing at times, Jesse Lingard hardly got onto the pitch to prove himself, and even Vardy was mainly used out wide by Pearson. Of course we have all seen the picture of the Play off defeat at Watford haven`t we, with Vardy, Kane and Drinkwater sat on the bench, seems crazy doesn`t it.. I honestly believe that if Pearson gets another job in the championship or league one, and he is able to get Shaky and possibly Walsh back with him, then he can still have a sucessfull career in management, without them, if i was the owner of a club, i wouldnt go near him.
  6. A really good and interesting documentary about ex Leicester manager Frank O`Farrell. Worth a watch, especially if you`re an old git like me!
  7. City fans were always fighting amongst themselves. Was on a train to Luton, when they kicked off with each other one time, also at Southend when it cracked off in our end, and back in the 70s, the different estates sometimes used to fight each other in the Kop.
  8. Another game i was at. Neil Warnock was their manager at the time, he was an arse then too.
  9. I was at that Millwal FA Cup game too, at the Old Den. It wasn`t a replay though, the game had been postponed, on numerous occasions if i remember rightly. As you say though, despite them beating us, their fans ran onto the pitch at the end, and ran over to our end, with less than friendly intentions shall we say.
  10. Yes it is, but don`t get me started on her or politics !!!
  11. Yep, i was there too. The BS arrived late as i remember, then it all cracked off big time in the car park after the game.
  12. I was there, kept us in for ages after the game, while the Boro fans decided to show the local coppers how pissed off they were!!
  13. Thanks for that. Well that explanation was what i was thinking too, but for some reason they keep saying on Radio Leicester that we need Arsenal not to win the Europa League too, as well as Man City to win the FA Cup, and yet they don`t mention anything about if Chelsea winning the Europa League having any kind of affect on it.
  14. My brother passed away, a week before christmas, and he had an over 50s funeral plan with the post office, which was only nine pound something. and the plan yielded just under £3,500, which was enough for a decent send off. £125 a month sounds massively excessive to me.
