  1. Vards didn't take his chance but he shot hard and low......sometimesthey go in, sometimes they don't. But l don't think l have seen a ball4 as perfect as that which set up Harvey's chance. The timing, weight and direction of pass were exquisite. He's a complete forward.
  2. Forgotten? I don't think so. All those 1-0 wins.....
  3. I would opt for it, and you are spot on when you say that Hamza is better on the ball than he is given credit for. His passing is sound (and he passes sideways and backwards less than some) and he doesn't often lose possession. Our chastening experience against Liverpool and Man City shows that the very top sides dominate possession. To have a chance you have to win the ball and against top sides we cannot just rely on Wilf in midfield. Hamza can win the ball when he's not expected to, and that can often wrong-foot defending teams - e.g. last night against Villa. He's worth a place in the starting XI for definite. Let the boy start!
  4. Martin O'Neill liked him.Peter Taylor did not. He must have been good!
  5. Maybe Harvey might score more by switching to the right, bringing Albrighton in on the left......just a thought.
  6. When l first watched City l got into the Popular Side for 9d which is less than 4p. Adults got in for 1s 3d which is 6.25p.
  7. Exactly. One contributor to Foxestalk compared our team to the great side of the early sixties (two cup finals and one fourth place finish). We had really good players: Banks, the brilliant Davie Gibson, McLintock, Stringfellow and the excellent lan King at centre half. We played some great football: l remember in particular a 3-1 win in 1963 against the evental champions, Everton, when City were the "Ice Age Champions". Nevertheless to take one example the full backs then, Chopper Chalmers and Ritchie Norman, could not have lived with Chilly and Ricardo, and good player that Ken Keyworth was, he was no Jamie Vardy. Not for that matter was Howard Riley a Harvey Barnes. We are indeed living in a Golden Age and a hundred years from now our fans will have access to videos etc and marvel at our fabulous players.
  8. I remember pre-season the esteemed Peter Taylor prophesying a top six finish and his immortal words, etched on my brain: "The lads are on fire in training".
  9. Anybody out there had my good fortune? As a boy of eight I saw City thrash Lincoln 9-2 in 1953. It has been a long time since then but l was at St Mary's to witness the 0-9 triumph. Anybody else witness both? And a question for a budding statto.......two City players got hat-tricks on Friday. Has that ever happened before in a City League game?In that 9-2 thrashing of Lincoln Derek Hines got five but Arthur Rowley only two.
  10. I recall that in the early part of the Great Season we got quite a few goals by Mark A cutting back on to his right foot, and swinging in a diagonal cross for Mahrez bearing down on goal from an inside right position. Those goals dried up later in the season - presumably other teams got wise to the ploy. I would like to see it tried again with Ricardo playing the Riyad role.
  11. Ben when you smile Ben you smile at me ("When" by The Kalin Twins - August 1957)
  12. He is an utter bloody gem - we have so much to thank him for.
  13. A fascinating summary. Your reference to Gnabry reminded me that our signings of defenders and mid-fielders have been very shrewd; our forwards not so good (not including Vardy and Mahrez of course!).
  14. As a matter of interest do you think it was a coincidence that Tielemans had his best game of this season when Maddison was absent? One other point: we are equal with Liverpool in having the best defence in the League which fact alone demonstrates how good Soyuncu and Evans have been. Let's hope it survives our impending visit to Anfield.
  15. I agree although I would like to see Amartey being given a chance on the right side of a back three
