December (Not many presents for City fans and “She said no” is official.)
City started the month 6 points behind automatic promotion and ten points above the drop zone. Middlesbrough arrived at The Rioch with a poor goal scoring record but they won a penalty but it was a terrible attempt by Lita Westwood saving easily and some how forcing the same player to miss from close range. The second half saw McSheffrey win a penalty but King took the spot kick and accurately beating the keeper for his first goal for City. City hung on but some home fans were not happy about the amount of time wasting by the City players whilst most were happy with the 3 points. Boothroyd had now been in charge for 20 games in the league comparing his start with all other managers in our history Boothroyd stood 4th just behind John Sillett, Eric Black and Harry Storer. With the transfer window only a month away rumours started to circulate again linking Westwood with Celtic. The next day the manager came out and claimed that Westwood and Gunnarsson are not going anywhere. Bad news for Marlon King in court as three judges upheld his convictions of sexual assault. We returned to Reading where we received a pasting the previous season but the defence and keeper stood firm and City returned with a 0-0 draw. This was City’s fourth clean sheet in a row only achieved 11 previous times in our league history. With the country in the grip of the coldest December for 120 years and heavy snow falling on a Saturday many were surprised and some angry that City did not postpone the home game against Norwich. The pitch was playable but the approach roads were difficult. Unfortunately the efforts to get the game on were all in vain as Norwich with some considerable help from the referee won 2-1 but King did score for the first time from open play in fact he would end December as the only City player to score. Then it was rumoured that City had turned down a bid of 2.5 million for Westwood. The next two games would be a real benchmark for the City as we faced the top two first off it was Cardiff away. City were outplayed as according to the manager were “looking for autographs” and Cardiff won 2-0 with the old enemy Bellamy being the main culprit but if it wasn’t for Westwood it could have easily been 6! Final game of the season saw City loose to the top team and mega rich QPR 2-0. The defeat left City in 7th but only on goal difference.

So another year over and apart from the last months of the Coleman ear it has been a good year our third best since relegation. We started the year in 17th and ended 10 places higher. Many people are waiting for the wheels to come off this season but maybe City are made of sterner stuff under Boothroyd? Certainly it’s been a while since fans can look forward so much to a new year. What will 2011 hold in store for us? As normal with City anything can happen hopefully it will be good news but only time will tell but despite a poor December there is a mood of quiet optimism around. 2011 just could be the turning point.

November (The bandwagons draws up at The Rioch and King the firework fails to go off)
We started the month a mere 6 points off automatic promotion. With reports that Leeds had sold out the away end and City’s good form the bang wagons could be seen pulling up at the Rioch as the biggest home gate ever turned up to see City play the team everyone seems to hate. Boothroyd named an unchanged side for the 5th game in a row despite Jutkiewicz finally scoring from open play and yet another Turner goal City lost an entertaining game 3-2. With Turner and Platt injured City travelled to Forest and lost 2-1 and Clingan picked up an injury and City dropped out the top 6. City travelled to another ground we do not seem to do well at Selhurst Park but with Palace struggling City ripped into the home side and King and Jutkiewicz had plenty of chances without taking any until McSheffrey attempting to clear from the half way line knocked the ball back to Westwood he picked it up and the referee deemed it a back pass and Palace scored. Then a challenge that looked a yard outside the area was given as a penalty and City lost 2-0. That was three defeats in a row where the wheels coming off? The answer was no as Wood switched to left back and a Doyle rocket won the home game against Burnley 1-0. By the time we were to play Scunthorpe away a big freeze had hit the country the game was on but it was very cold. Scunthorpe is yet another bad ground for us, most of them seem to be in fact we have never won there another hoodoo was about to be laid to rest. King had yet to score for City but that day he came very close a first half shot was saved and knocked in by McSheffrey and a second half shot bounced of the post hit keeper Joe Murphy on the head and went in for an own goal. Adie Boothroyd was so desperate for a King goal he credited to him but it was defiantly a goal by the keeper that would be most likely to replace Westwood if he left. What couldn’t be disputed that City won 2-0 and re-entered the top six.

Some Players are worth bottling

Tim Cahill, has arranged for an auction on EBay to fly the winners of his Auction, to England business class from
anywhere in the world, tickets to a match at Goodison park, Signed shirt, signed boots and a day at the training
camp to watch Everton. So far its up to $67,000 dollars all going to the flood relief .... obviously his family lives
in Qld and he is very much affected by this....

Kevin Peitersen (the Cricketer) has also arranged for and EBay thing to help out and his team mates have donated
their matchpayments from their next game to go to the flood relief

Lance Armstrong is organising a bike ride with famous tour riders to ride where ever it needs to be and all funds

October (Halloween horror as the City bullies make the top six)
City started the month in 9th place three points off the top two a point behind the 6th placed team and six points clear of a relegation place. A trip to Hull was next up and if City scored it would be only the 4th time in our history we had scored in the first ten league games. The main team news as an “injury” to King, Hull was the place he committed the crime that put him down and the Hull fans turned up to berate their former forward so it was not surprise when we heard he was still out with a “dead leg” for the last couple of weeks. The game ended scoreless with the fit again Danny Ward looking poor but the more games he played the less we had to pay his club. At this time The Belgrade Theatre were putting on a play called “We love you City” concerning the events around the Cup Final of 87. The play received great acclaim by just about everyone who saw it. After ten games we were on 15 points the exact number of points we had earned at the same time in the two previous seasons. Another trip to a bogy ground next as the vastly over priced Portman Road awaited us as we took on “Roy Keane’s Ipswich Town”. Another hoodoo broken as City returned with a 2-1 win with a Platt header and a Jutkiewicz penalty in a 2-1 win. Cardiff were the next visitors to the Ricoh and Westwood became one of only 17 keepers to play 100 league goals for City. Most fans seemed to turn up just to boo one player as Craig Bellamy finally played against City. Early in the year Cardiff won a late controversial penalty this time the controversial penalty was early as Cardiff won 2-1 thanks to a late goal from another boo-boy Jay Bothroyd. Later the forward on Twitter complained he hated playing against Coventry because they are bullies. For the first time in years teams seem not like playing against The City. By the time Barnsley turned up to be bullied at the Rioch King had another mysterious injury. The Tykes hadn’t won in Coventry since 1923 and they hardly play us and escape lightly and this would be no exception. City lead deep into the game with a McSheffrey goal putting him in the top 17 all time goal scores then in the dieing minutes two subs scored both for the first time first there were Carl Baker followed by Jordan Clarke. History was made that day, as it was the first time since becoming a league side two Coventry born players had scored at home for City. It was only the second time in our league history with an away victory against Palace being the other time Marcus Hall and McSheffrey scored in that one. Jordan became only the 17th Coventry born player to score for the City. More importantly the victory lifted City to 6th place. For the 2nd time in the year we visited Sheffield United. The previous season arguments broke out about how bad the manager was this time everyone was singing the praise of Boothroyd as a McSheffrey goal won the game and City moved up to 4th. It was our first victory there for nine seasons. October also saw the launch of an autobiography of Bobby Gould called “24 carat Gould” other autobiographies were from Cyrille Regis and another one from Kevin Drinkell the last two not so complementary about the Sky Blues.

September (Month of atonement? No atoning for King)
City started the month in 8th place, goals difference from the top six, three points of the top two and five points clear of relegation. City dipped into the loan market for the first time for an outfield player when Bolton’s lightening quick winger Danny Ward arrived. Next up was the so-called M69 derby as struggling Leicester was in town. Westwood and Boothroyd seemed to have patched things up and the manager made his 7th goalkeeping change of the season and Danny Ward made his debut. Platt scored his first goal and was a surprise package at this time of the season but Leicester scored late and we settled for a draw. Only 182 City fans braved the midweek trip to Wales to face Swansea and to see the rare feat of a goalkeeper playing in consecutive games. Ward who wasn’t playing well was injured and returned to his club the second loan player to be sent home injured. City lost 2-1 with many fans complaining about the poor quality of the side and the long ball tactics. More King rumours emerged as he had been seed at Forest and expected to sign for them the next day. City next travelled to Bristol City a ground we have a terrible record at but The Robbins at that time had been five months without a league victory at home despite the fact they had signed England’s worst ever keeper David James in the summer. With the away fans singing about following City away and giving stick to James the Sky Blues won a rare victory at Ashton Gate with Platt and the outstanding Ben Turner scoring in fact the defender was now top scorer. Finally Marlon King signed for City. Some people ignored the stats and thought he was a Premiership class player many thinking the player would score goals for fun despite the fact he only scored 15+ goals in a season once in his career, some fans were not happy would but wait and see, some would still support the team but not cheer if King scored, some even refused to turn up one of them was lifelong City fan and Councillor Ann Lucas. Meanwhile King refused to accept his guilt and vowed to clear his name. King made his debut in the home match against bottom placed Hull he came on as a sub when City were trailing and had a shot blocked on the line. Earlier on a rejuvenated Gunnarsson had scored his first ever goal at home but City lost 2-1. Doncaster next at a sparsely populated Rioch, Gunnarsson scored again but King was forced off with an injury and with the game level in the dieing minutes McSheffrey scored his first goal since his returned and City won 2-1.

August (the month of honour, We are top of the league again!)
The month kicked off with a forum with Adie Boothroyd. One main topic was would he sign Marlon King? King previously played under Boothroyd at Watford but was still in prison serving time for sexual assault and his signing would be controversial. A straw poll in the audiences suggested most would want King to sign. Generally most fans were impressed by the straight talking of the new manager. The season kicked off with a home game against Portsmouth. There was some considerable doubt whether Portsmouth would even still be in business when the season started but they survived and arrived with a small squad happy just to be playing. Boothroyd surprised everyone with his team selection out went reliable defenders McPake and Wood and in came unreliable Turner he also picked a player making his full debut Nathan Cameron. Also playing for the first time that year was Richard Keogh, former players Gary McSheffrey and Lee Carsley and Michael Doyle who had returned after a successful year’s loan with Leeds and many expected them to sign him. Up front for his first game was Lucas Jutkiewicz. Clive Platt made his debut as a sub as Eastwood bagged two the first the quickest goal of the opening game for City for over forty years. So City were off to a flyer and Boothroyd’s gamble on his defence worked. Next game City were involved in cup action and for the first time ever we were the first completive visitors to a new ground and for the first time ever we opened our away campaign in the cup. We played Morecambe but the new boss shocked the travelling fans by making 10 changes and had a bench full of youth players. Players playing for the first time that year were on loan keeper Colin Doyle and forward Roy O’Donovan. Later Coventry born Cyrus Christie made his debut from the bench and even later on Johnson Clarke-Harris made his debut and became the youngest ever City player he became one of only 31 eighteen year olds to play for the City. City subsequently lost 2-0 much to the anger of the fans that travelled all that way to see a so-called 1st team game. Next game was a trip to Watford and more surprising team selection as there was no Westwood. Rumours that he had been sold were dismissed when we heard one of his relatives had been shot dead and the keeper was on compassionate leave. With Colin Doyle being recalled City played their third keeper of the season in the third game as Everton’s Ian Turner was loaned out to play. Not long into the game the keeper picked up an injury saving a shot and had to go off. On came Michael Quirk for his debut goalkeeper number four. Despite the impressive Cameron City soon trailed by 2 goals and comments like “it is just like it was under Coleman” could be heard when the boss made a surprise substitution off went forwards Eastwood and McSheffrey and on came Platt and Gunnarsson. The changes worked a treat as City scored twice in the last two minutes a cracking Bell goal followed by a last minute penalty by Jutkiewicz. The Rioch celebrated five years of business when Sky cameras turned up to televise the home game with Derby and it was goal keeper change number five as Westwood returned. City won 2-1 with Turner scoring his first goal for the club and playing really well. This meant that City topped the league something we always do in August. Rumours continued about the signing of King as City seemed perpetually on the verge of signing him some fans could not understand why he wasn’t all ready at the club. One fan rang the phone in claiming that if King signed he would guarantee us 15 goals before Christmas. Not all fans where in favour of the singing and many didn’t want a player with 14+ convictions at the club. Next up was Millwall as City strived to be only the 14th time in our history we remained unbeaten in our first four league games. A few days before a Coventry woman was caught on camera throwing a cat into a bin “we put cats in bins” became one of the more amusing songs with City away fans. More serious matters on the pitch as Westwood was missing again this time more rumours about him being sold but Boothroyd had dropped him because the keeper refused to sign a new contract looked like a rift had opened up between the manager and his best player. Iain Turner played goalkeeping change number six! City’s run ended as we lost 3-1 and Carl Baker was harshly sent off. Transfer deadline day passed with no moves in or out Westwood was still a City player. The loan window was still open and clubs could sign players not connected with other clubs.

Got to be happy with the cup draw if we loose as long as it isn't a hammering no one will be suprised. It wouldn't be a shock if we got a result there and it is no far away with St Andrews just being off the Coventry Road. Can almost cycle it or even go by bus £1.70 I wonder how much the club will demand on thier coaches headball

The Closed season
Finally City fans could forget their woes and look forward to supporting a team with a real chance of glory as England were one of the favourites in the World Cup. Playing in South Africa in their wintertime meaning it will not be too hot but sadly there would be no joy there either. Back on the domestic front the first day of June saw the release of Wright, Konstantopolous and Morrison as Boothroyd started his rebuilding work. The World Cup started and England were off with a flyer thanks to an early goal missed by many as ITV HD decided to go for a commercial break during the goal. A Rob Green howler meant England could only draw with the USA. Then England was held comfortably by Algeria 0-0. During the World Cup Boothroyd made his first signing but in truth any manager in charge would of signed the same player since it was one to pleased the fans as Gary McSheffrey returned home he stood 18th on our all time goal scoring list for league goals but had a injury prone few seasons so City gave him a year’s contract. A few days later the tricky left back position seemed to be solved as we signed Stephen O’Halloran from Villa he did come with an injury prone reputation. On the same day England squeezed passed Slovenia 1-0 to qualify for the knock out stage of the World Cup. Then another return to his former club as former youth player Roy O’Donovan was signed he previously left after not getting on with the coaches. England finally exited the World Cup being outplayed by Germany 4-1 but did have a goal not given when the ball clearly crossed the line. More Irish arrived as right back Richard Keogh was signed from Carlisle. The English born defender was a popular player with Carlisle fans and was very attack minded. Spain beat The Netherlands in a pretty boring World Cup Final capping a very boring World Cup. City kicked off the pre-season campaign with a 0-0 away draw with Nuneaton Town. City followed this up with another scoreless draw this time away to Hinckley. Fans were started to get worried about the lack of goals. Finally a goal as McPake scored in a 1-0 away victory against Northampton still, City looked solid at the back. City kept another clean sheet with a 2-0 away win against Walsall. Another “old boy” had returned and another Irishman as Lee Carsley was signed. More players came to the club and this time they were not Irish as Southampton born player with a Polish name arrived from Everton for £500,000 his name Lukas Jutkiewicz. He came with a great reparation as City fans struggled to pronounce his surname. The signing of Lukas created a good bit of excitement the next forward in just left City fans scratching their heads. Clive Platt came in from Colchester after scoring a mere 7 goals for the League 1 club last season. He only cost £50,000 and was nicked named “The Tree” because of his size and speed of movement he seemed destined to be a squad player. City ended the month with a 1-1 draw at home to WBA in a friendly despite conceding a goal it was an encouraging performance.

Hi Carole B fish

Before the Palace game my wish was to scrape through and then hammer them in the league encounter for a while I thought it would be the other way around. Still we made it.

May (The month of new hope? As Coleman is given the sack.)
Last game of the season was a home tie against Watford the same team that ended our home fixtures the previous season. Most fans had turned up to see Marcus Hall’s 313th and final game for the Sky Blues after many years of service. Only 13 players had played more but Hall was only on the bench. Early in the 2nd half and disquiet as City trailed 2-0 Coleman then brought on a sub but to considerable anger it wasn’t Hall and the boss had used all three subs so no farewell for Marcus! Watford made it 4 and it should have been more against it was Watford’s first away win in 6 attempts. Most of the crowd were very angry with Coleman and booed the team off before departing. City ended 19th it would have been 20th if Palace did not have their points deducted. Many fans thought it was time for Coleman to go! It was another boom and bust season for City and things hardly looked like they would change unless something drastic happened. Top scorer was Morrison with a mere 11 goals Best was the only other player to hit double figures with ten in all competitions. Two days later Chris Coleman was sacked after only winning just under a third of the matches we played under him and three times we suffered an end of season collapse. So who would replace him? Four names emerged early on the newspapers’ favourite was Steve Cotterill whilst some newspapers who knew nothing about our past tipped a manager with a poorer record than Coleman to take over a certain Gary McAllister. The City fans held a poll and the top two names were Tony Mowbrary and predictably Eric Black. As always some surprising names came forward none more then Lazio Boloni a manager that had managed both Standard Liege and Romania he was considered a serious contender. Another name in the frame was apparently Dennis Wise. A week from the sacking and according to the newspapers Paul Hart was hot favourite for the manager’s job with Dion Dublin 2nd favourite! Things then went quiet on the manager front as the papers got board trying to remember any former City players that could be looking to go into management. Then on the 20th the new manager was announced and it was a bolt out of the blue a name no one had suspected as Colchester’s Adie Boothroyd became our 41st manager including caretakers since we became a league club. Not everyone was happy at the appointment but Colchester fans seem to be. They posted stories about route one hoof ball and how Boothroyd had treated them to some real boring football. City fans were also worried about the long ball game coming to the Rioch.

Vicky: Have to admit I was pleased for Best when I read he scored a hat trick he always looked like a player that would be more suited to the Premier League then the Championship.

A big game today we need a win PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not draw headbanger headbanger talktohand

April (The month of the fool “The Crawl to naff all”.)
April started with City 9 points from the play offs and 13 points ahead of a relegation place with six games to go a mid table finish looked likely. With the play off push seemingly over “The March to the Arch” was re-christened it “The crawl to naff all” by a text the Friday Night Phone in and. April’s first game was at home to Derby. It was another poor performance as City lost. Gunnarsson looked clueless on the wing and the team lacked fight things were not helped when the referee ruled out a perfectly good goal by Hussey in the dieing minutes. For the third year in a row it looked like City would collapse near the end of the season and serious questions were being asked about Coleman’s ability. Next up was a tricky trip to Reading on Easter Monday. City were totally outplayed with Stephen Wright being taken apart with ever attack. At half time City trailed by 3 goals and Coleman shocked everyone by taking off Hussey and leaving Wright on the pitch. City failed to score again meaning the goal scoring record under Coleman was one of the worst in our history. With the season entering it’s final run in the team travelled to Sheffield United to see if City could end six games without a win. Alas in another dull game City fell behind to a poor Sheffield United side and there were the first real loud “Coleman out” chants. Baker had lost his early promise as City were beaten 1-0. Jordan Clarke played his first game of the year. A Shareholders meeting was called in the middle of the month and there was a lot of anger about the lack of progress on the field this season. Quizzed about Coleman’s future at the club chairman Ray Ransom gave him a vote of confidence and stated he expected a push for the top 10 or a play off place next season but with consistency. After the meeting City entertained Preston. City took the lead but not for long with the game all level Coleman switched to 4-5-1 and City held out for a point. Michael McIndoe had taken over from Best as the new “boo boy” and Shaun Jeffers played for the first time this year. This point combined with Palace being deducted 10 point now meant City were safe from relegation when a month ago a play off place was within reach. A trip to Middlesbrough rounded off the away campaign and it was another dull game with a very subdued atmosphere in the away end. The second half was better with City coming from behind to earn a good point Gunnarsson scoring his 2nd league goal for City his first was also in the last away game of last season. The Middlesbrough fans stayed behind after to protest about their manager Gordon Strachan. Following City away is an expensive business and the final cost of the season were £560.50 on tickets per person, £143 on petrol per person and £54 on car parking in total, that is based on five people sharing a car. With the season nearly over the rumours started. Was Coleman being appointed manager of Swansea and Stuart Pearce coming to City as the new manager?

March (The month of the god of war. War is declared on referees as City battle in vain)
City started the month only 3 points off the play offs but we had played more games. We were 12 points off relegation but all the talk was could City gatecrash the top six? Next up was a trip to bottom placed Peterborough. We had won our last two visits to bottom placed teams so optimism was high. A combination of a nearby ground, City’s good form and a chance to stand on terracing meant a large following was taken to London Road. With the terracing packed out a great atmosphere was produced. Marcus Hall made his first appearance of the year in defence. Jon Stead scored again, showing great strength as we won 1-0. Later the board would state the Peterborough game as the highlight of the season thanks to the tremendous atmosphere. City moved to 8th still 3 points away from the play off zone little did we know it would be 6 months before our next win. Next up was a home tie against second from bottom Plymouth but it was not as easy as many predicted with City only drawing, McIndoe scoring his first goal for the club. That point was vital as the gap to 6th place was now 2 points. Then came the big one! Sixth placed Cardiff was in town. A win and we could be in the top six! Thirty-one minutes into the game and Morrison scored for City this meant City had provisionally moved into the play off places. The lead lasted nine minutes before a Burke scored for Cardiff. City looked like they had earned a point when Cardiff was given a later controversial penalty, which they converted. The Bluebird’s manager Dave Jones admitted later the penalty was harsh but City’s play off push seemed to have been destroyed. With play offs now an outside chance City travelled to Leicester on a Sunday for televised game. Strangely City had never lost against Leicester under Coleman but history was against us as this was out 6th trip to The Walkers with six different managers up to now all defeats and some dire performances as well. Not a great start as Andy King fired the Foxes in front early on he added another in the first half which television later proved that the ball never crossed the line but all decisions seemed to be going against City this month. It looked like another hammering at The Walkers but what happen next was remarkable instead off giving up City stormed back with a first goal by McPake and one from the steadily improving Deegan, City had deserved a point. Coleman and the players received a standing ovation oh how fickle fans can be as we were to find out a few weeks later. Maybe a play off place was out of our reach but many fans would settle for mid table as a sign of improvement. A spirited 1-0 away defeat to 2nd placed West Brom ended our good run. Chris Hussey came on as sub for his first game of the year. Last game of the month was at home to relegation threatened Sheffield Wednesday. City that day wore a special white kit to publicise England’s bid to host the World Cup well that worked didn’t it! City did not play too well and were booed off at half time Freddie Sears looked awful and Stead just looked average. It took an equaliser from former Wednesday player Wood to earn a point.

I would of played Jutkiewicz and not Platt up front yesterday. Playing The Tree makes it too tempting to whack the long ball up and it doesn't allways work. We need Clingan back despartly Carsley and Doyle are too similar and are too defensive. I would prefer to see Gunnarsson in the centre and someonesle out wide, Baker, Bell or Jutkiewicz. Still we couldn't go on winning at Oakwell maybe this season it's loose at the grounds we nornally do well at and win at the ground we do not do well at in that case it should still be a good season

Hi guys...seems the lads had a bad day at the office...not to many decent crosses put in from good positions by the sound of it...now if the other teams win there games in hand we could be around 17th...2 pts from 18 is relagation form...so they need to turn it around quite soon methinks.

Heard from Gus, he has had trouble getting in but hope I have solved that for him...so maybe the flamin Gala will turn up soon...

You do forget what had happened from week to week over the season.....great reading Choccy P.

Liked the match report......

I wasn't listening to the game.....I was listening to Talksport and knew that they'd say how we were playing every so often and when/if we scored a goal they'd say.....Durham said "Oh a sending off at the Ricoh" then the guy who was watching our game said King had been sent off.....Durham then mentioned "Bad boy off the pitch as well as on it" I could then switch over and listen to the match.....Eakin seemed to think the ref had no choice but to send him off.....even Linnel of all people seemed to think it was the right decision.

February (Month of purification, City are purified of bad form in the “March to the Arch”)
We started the month 7 points behind the play offs and 8 points above relegation. The transfer window closed on the first day of the month and most fans were prepared to see Westwood and Gunnarsson go but neither did with City turning down an alleged offer from Spurs for Westwood. A surprise move was the league leaders Newcastle coming in with a two million pound bid for Best. Even the fans that rated Best thought this was a good deal. Best scored just under a goal in every five games for City he went on to play 13 times for Newcastle that season without scoring. Meanwhile Coleman had rounded on fans complaining about only playing one forward labelling them as “Neanderthals”. First game at the month was at the unhappy hunting ground of Aston Gate where City fans sang, “We are Neanderthals” throughout the game. Coventry returned with a rare point. City were looking for a forward to come in on loan as we entertained 3rd placed Forest. History was made as referee Mr Bates was injury and replaced by a female referee Ms Amy Fearn she became the first woman to referee a match at this level and she did a good job. City won 1-0 and the form of James McPake was catching the eye. City then finally landed an attacking player on loan as West Ham’s Freddie Sears came to town he was reportedly a speedy winger. City then started to get into a roll with a 1-0 home victory against QPR Sears made his debut and Westwood pulled off a world class save as City rose to 10th. City then finally landed a target man as Ipswich’s John Stead was loaned to the club he was looking for a permanent deal. Next was a tough trip away to Newcastle. City took the lead but lost 4-1 and ended with ten players after Barnett was sent off and Jon Stead made his debut. Despite the heavy defeat the majority of away fans came away happy with the work rate and commitment against a team far too good for the Championship and at least Best didn’t score against his former team. Another long trip for City fans next as we journeyed to Selhurst Park to face relegation threaten Palace. With many City fans hoping to knock a nail into the Palace coffin we won by a goal to nil with substitute Bell scoring a great goal with a delicate chip from the edge of the box. Baker looked unstoppable whilst Stead had a promising full debut. Optimism was up as City were on a good run as Chris Coleman’s 2nd anniversary of taking over the club came around. He was only the 12th manager in our history to make it past two years. Next up was Scunthorpe at home and City won again despite Barnett being sent off in his second consecutive game. A first goal from Stead and a free kick from Clingan saw City win 2-1 and move only 3 points behind the play off places. Local Radio Personality Malcolm Boydon coined the phrase “The March to the Arch” as City seemed determined to be the type of side that put a good run to win a late play off place.

Hi all just finished my 2010 review so here is the first month

Oh no, not another Year’s review

As John Lennon sang “another year’s over a new one’s just begun.” In 2010 most fans dreamt of a push to the play offs only to see a collapse, a new manager and for the first time in many years genuine optimism. We said goodbye to the last decade that was comparable to the “Stormy Period” of the 1920’s. In many ways the last ten years had been worse but after the “Stormy Period” we had “The Old Five era” could history be repeating itself? In 2010 we have used 41 different players only 1 more than in 2009 and the second highest since relegation, the most players used in a year was 42 in 2005 since relegation. Six of those players that played this year came on loan one fewer than last year. This year we have earned 60 points compared with years 2002 63 points, 2003 42 points, 2004 54 points, 2005 51 points, 2006 68 points, 2007 54 points, 2008 54 points, 2009 49 points.

January (Nothing changes on New Years Day)
City started the year in no-mans’ land 17th two lower than the pervious season, 9 points from a play off place but 7 points from relegation only a few points different from the pervious season. First game of the year was a FA Cup game away to The Premiership crisis side Portsmouth. City had not lost on the South Coast in the Cup for 50 years and many were predicting the Championship side to progress. The first team of the year was Keiren Westwood the back four were Stephen Wright, James McPake, Richard Wood and Martin Cranie, with Sammy Clingan, Aron Gunnarsson, Michael McIndoe and David Bell in midfield leaving Freddy Eastwood and Clinton Morrison up front. Westwood being in goal meant we had not sold him yet despite the normal rumours concerning the keeper around this time of the year. City fans packed the away end whilst the home sections were sparsely populated. Bell fired City into the lead sparking an unashamedly biased Talk Sport reporter Bobby Gould to announce the goal on the radio with a chorus of the Sky Blue Song. Pompey levelled before half time. The second half saw Dimi Konstantopolous come on also playing for the first time that year were Leon Best another played expected to be sold by now. The game ended level but there was a chance Portsmouth could go into liquidation before the replay. During an icy blast that hit Britain Chelsea refused City request to extend the loan of Jack Cork a player that will never break into the Chelsea first team. With the country in a grip of winter only 7 games survived on the year’s first Saturday of league football one of them was at the Rioch. The visitors were about the only team that considers us as a “bogy side” as Barnsley were in town. Leon Barnett made his first appearance of the year and Carl Baker and Gary Deegan both made their debuts coming off the bench. City as normal beat Barnsley this time 3-1 with Best, Morrison and a brilliant scissor volley by Clingan with the goals. Portsmouth were still in business by the time of the replay but so much for cup fever as only 7,000+ turned up for the game our lowest FA Cup gate since becoming a league side. Best scored a great goal on the turn and it looked like City were heading to the 4th Round until 30 seconds from the end Stephen Wright rose and headed the ball past his own keeper to send the game into extra time. Chris Coleman confused everyone when he sent on defender Jermaine Grandison to play up front. City lost all shape and Portsmouth scored in injury time at the end of the second half of extra time and City crashed out of the FA Cup. With City trying to extend a loan deal for Barnett Sheffield United attempted unsuccessfully to hijack the deal whilst Southampton pulled out of buying Elliott Ward. City’s next game was at Ipswich a ground where we never seem to win. More strange substations by Coleman as City seemed to be heading for defeat. Then three minutes into injury time Wood made it 2-2 but joy was short lived as Ipswich scored again within seconds of the kick off. With City fans feeling low Burnley allegedly came in for Gunnarsson for a fee of £950,000 the man from Iceland was not the player he was and some fans thought it would be a good deal. With City in the habit of conceding late goals Coleman went to his favourite club Swansea and “put the shutters up” to try to sneak out with at least a point. Only 150 City fans made the trip to see Coleman’s plan work well as City came back with a point in an extremely boring scoreless draw. Spurs joined the growing list of teams supposedly interested in Westwood. Last game of the month saw City take on the surprise team of the season, Blackpool. The fans were not happy to hear that City would play only one up front again. Most fans did not mind the playing of a loan striker away from home but not at home. City trailed to a ten-man Blackpool team before the formation was switched to 4-4-2 then in the last ten minutes a shot from Deegan took a lucky couple of deflections and City escaped with a point. So far Deegan had not lived up to his hype whilst Baker was looking like a good buy.

Thanks for the warning Choccy P.....I made sure I wasn't having a mug or else it would have been all over the screen. affraid ...."They gave him second?" Good report though.

I expect Rob watched the QPR on the tv Choccy P.......he's not sent a text to tell us what he thought yet.

Thanks for the match report as well Choccy.....it's good to read what you thought even if I've listened to it....well we all know how Eakin/Foster/ etc etc have their slant.

Certain players I could never clap for even if he was wearing our shirt.....Nicky Summerbee is another one and we almost signed him. headbanger ......but that's my way. Smile

Oh well were never going to win automatic promotion anyway. The Ipswich game is now massive if we lose that we could start to slide.

King has now been the regualr forward for 9 games in which we have scored 6 goals the previous 9 games we scored 12. I don't think King and Platt can play together. The big fella needs someone near him so he can flick on for and some one to take the attention away from him.

Still no complaints coming into the new year we are well placed and still any finish above half way will signal an improvement

Hi Choccy...HI Vicky...a very merry xmas to you both and anyone else who happens to pop in for a quick read... ... CCFC

Thanks for the report Choccy...should have seen my car after the 11 hr trip up last w/end...

With R/R saying the club is still making massive losses so no new blood comming in...but could he still sanction loanee's if thier club pay most of the wages...with ccfcok still in the top 6 (maybe not after Tuesday... )...we could still look attractive enough for a young un trying to show HIS boss he will be good enough or an old un fed up with sitting on the bench maybe ? After all Carsley is an old un and has to be one of the most consistant players we have this season...well it seems to me he has...but maybe you disagree Choccy... surrender ...

Have to report back to work tomorrow so will not be able to listen to the match...but maybe some union biz will pop up which I would have to see to STRAIGHT away of course...it might take me a couple of hrs to sort out...

Hi Vicky...see your favourate player (not)... ...had a good game...I look at him as just a player when he wears our colours and if he helps the team that is good...now if I saw him on the street and not on club biz...I would let him know just what I thought of him personaly, in a calm clear voice, but I would not include any footy talk...as I would keep them seperate agendas...but thats just me and everyone is different...and once again I would clap if he scored...but I would be clapping for the team not for him...and I don't care what he is thinking because I know what I am clapping for...and now everyone on here knows to...so you are my wittnesses...so to speak... soapbox ... ...wow, how did I get up there... ... surrender ... ... ... ... ... lol! ...

OK...QPR next and after thier good win yesterday, they will be up for it...I think THIS is the game that will show us just where we are...we saw or heard what happened to us yesterday...only a quick free kick and a diflected shot from... NO KNECK...was the differance in the end...I know they had more chances and Westy kept us in the game on at least 4 occasions...but they kept fighting ...something they will have to do a lot at QPR...it will be no good going there just to defend...they would wipe the floor with us I think...we will have to take the game to them and keep them busy, on what I have seen, QPR are a bit week at the back so we need to put pressure on them and see what happens...wish I could get to the game...it could be a good un...PLAY UP SKYBLUES... CCFC

Oh well being hammered by Cardiff is no disgrace and if it wasn't for Westwood it could of been 6.

I drove to the game and we reached the ground, Kev showed his disabled badge and I drove in passed another steward who we supossed to stop at and pay £6 to park my car in the ground's car park, I didn't know that so we got in free

My car was clean when I left home but was filthy when I reached Cardiff at least it shows teh roads had been gritted.

Match report warning, King named as 2nd place in man of the match

QPR tomorrow another tough game lets hope we can enter the new year in the top six.

Hi guys...

Sorry did not get to see you Choccy...our 3 hr drive up ended up an 11 hr trek and we did not get to our hotel in Cov until 9.30pm...so I was a bit late to get to the game... lol!

I did get to see my good friend Paul (Braddy)...he has told me before that King is a class above most of our players...said he has a footballers brain, with the control to go with it...I was stuck on the M25 when I heard who had just scored for us...I thought of Vicky straight away... headbanger ...

So we will finish in the top 6 for xmas...could do with a good result against Cardiff and QPR...then we would be in a very strong position for the new year...we play QPR again at the end of Jan I think ?

OK...have a GREAT xmas you 2 and anybody else who just pops in to read Choccy's match reports... ... CCFC

So it is Linell in love with King then. Ignoring his crimes King is a good player in some respects he has a great first touch can control the ball well but he is not head and shoulders above anyone else his work rate is OK he is not particully fast his heading is ok he is not a premiership player. A decent championship one yes but I would perfer to see Eastwood play up front.

Not sure if Paul jumped up when he scored as he is in the posh seat.

Two games to go in the year so we may not end the year in the top 6 after all but at worse we will be pretty close.

I have to hand it to AB how he never ciritices the referee any see that excahnge between Warnock and the ref? Warnock said "I spotted 3 or 4 errors in the game from you ref" he replied "I spotted 3 or 4 bad passes from your side!" lol!

I think there should be a rule that if more than two players from a side question a decison from the ref he is allowed to book them.

Hi Choccy P......great match report once again.

Did Paul jump up and cheer?

Stuart Linnel really got on my nerves the way he slobbers over "The Thug" ......at one point he said "He's a different player than anyone on that pitch" and I said to David "He means none of the others beat up women etc and get sent to jail" .......you can imagine Linnell shaking his hand and slobbering all over him when they meet up.

I wonder if Jon Gaunt still goes to watch the team.....he always said he'd hate to have a jailbird like Hughes playing for us, wonder what he thinks about Cowardly Thug.

Terrible condition going to the game so much slush on my bike I could only use one gear Shocked Still the game wasn't bad and I satyed steaded when King scored. I think the CWR comonatator is sleeping with the forward the goal was well taken and in no well superb.

Shame the referee spoiled the game still we are well placed
