Re: New tactic for City away next season

I was thinking about his too. Not sure if it just applies in the football league. Perhaps we could say we can’t put a squad out. Taking a 3-0 defeat and resting a few would certainly be a better outcome for us nearly every time which is a bit pathetic. Most of us would realistically expect us to los...

Re: Does anyone actually enjoy watching us play?

Its not great at the moment. Didn’t bother watching yesterday and bet on on 3-0 4-0 and 5-0. The set up is just so predictable. Don’t watch that many games of other teams but just watched Chelsea 0 Spurs 0. Any ten minutes of that game was better than anything we have produced all season.

Re: Mcneil - have we seen enough?

Didn’t see today’s game but ideally he wouldn’ t have played so many games and would be rested. We have no other options though and that’s the Chairman’s fault not McNeil’s. He’s a young lad making his way and should be encouraged. There are far weaker areas of the team to focus on.

Re: ALK Capital or Farnell/Elkashashy takeover

I think most fans would be happier if we could just afford a young right back and a good right winger which we needed prior to this season really. By putting things off every transfer window we now have a very ageing squad and a potentially bigger problem.
