Millen Integral For City's Fine Defence

Many City fans will argue that we need a couple of midfielders, and manager Gary Johnson has just brought Stern John in on loan from Southampton as he clearly feels that we need some more assistance in the striker department.   Few people, however, are calling for new defenders. Yes, it would be nice to have a little bit of competition for McAllister at left back (never the same since ....

Jamie Mccombe - The Missing Link

One player has been missed more than any this season. No not Nick bloody Carle, it’s Jamie McCombe. A nasty facial injury at home to Derby earlier this season which caused a broken cheek bone has meant that City have been without 'Boom Boom' since. Now with a metal plate in his face and a few behind closed doors friendlies under his belt, Jamie is hoping to stake a claim for a place against ....

Lee Johnson - The Debate Continues...

There's one subject that is certain to get City fans entered into a debate. A lot of people will just groan and murmur under their breath "oh god not this again" whereas some will leap wholeheartedly into the fray, fighting their side without relenting. The subject is of course Lee Johnson. The way I see, there are three main camps within the City fans. 1. The "drop him" fan. Likely to ....

Does Johnson Deserve His Place?

Lee Johnson. Could there be a player in City’s recent history that has polarised the views of City fans as much as this man?   Lee Johnson can be a really frustrating player to watch. He receives the ball probably more than anyone else on the pitch, but he can be very inconsistent with where he sends it. Often he sends it backwards or sideways. People get very worked up about this, ....

'little John' Introduces Himself In A Big Way

Tuesday night was a special night at Ashton Gate. No I'm not talking about coming back from two goals down, as impressive as it was. Neither am I talking about David Nobles last minute wondergoal.

The Premier League - A World Apart

Amidst a day of talk concerning hundred-million-pound takeovers and player signings, and Arab businessmen deciding which of four clubs to pursue an 'interest' in, it gave one miniscule football fan, in the grand scheme of things, the chance to take stock and look at the wider view of the English game; the general direction of its development, and my club's participation in it. I can't imagine ....

My Battle With 'second Season Syndrome'

I must apologise for a lack of posts in recent weeks, predominantly for two reasons. The first being idiocy on my part, not having a back-up of a post at the ready in case I hit the 'Submit' button and nothing happened... As it did. The second, and much more strenuous, being my suspected battle with 'SSS', or 'Second Season Syndrome'. In mid-June, as the the first odds for the new season were ....
