I didn't know Robins was pro Sisu,   though as you said we'll start playing football now.

Good about Savage....you've saved Paul's legs. Smile

Carpet has grown on me.....I might start liking it soon

My thoughts on Slade he was a manager I wanted in for his League One experience but like all before him he didn't have the backing of the board, he wanted to bring in Ajose but didn't have the funds he was also on a hiding to nothing but it has got worse under him, his playing style is awful but I thought at Shrewsbury he was learning by brining back Bigi then I learnt it was only because Foley pulled out late Gael got in. Still the only reason to get rid of him if we started to build for next season so brining back Robins is a good move he is pro Sisu but will leg it when it gets tough again, at least we will start playing football again.

Well it's a new sofa but that's not what all this is about.....we also had a new carpet which I hated, it's growing on me "Like a wart" my husband said funnytvprog  when it was layed it just didn't look how I imagined it would look AND Benjie's paw prints show up confused2  of course we were talking about it on the site, as you do. so various photos have been put on the site....this is the latest one.  (close up of sofa & carpet)   it's a good job we only talk about football on here .....such excitement. Smile

BTW I got Paul Robbie Savage's autograph ....you mean he's lost it?    tell him "Smack legs from Vicky" it should be framed and hanging over the fireplace. Smile

morning morning morning morning easychair tired tired
Another game another defeat. Sleep

About five of six years ago we played Derby and one of Paul's workmates or friends was there because his young son was in their academy, years later he was at last night's game and he is Kwame Thomas' dad, small world.

His dad said Kwame wasn't been given the right passes because he is quite quick.

We want a team of Thomas's......

A brilliant win.....though the first caller Ian is still "That was a tough name for us" and he's being told what is he on about? So Choccy P what's your view?

I was "Ahhhh get it away" when I was listening....though it was a good game....once the whistle had gone. Smile

Sometimes it is a bit easier to watch defeats if the team put in the effort and they did we were unlucky and I will never understand how the ref missed the foul on Reece-Cook.

Also was interviewed by Martin Winch for CWR before the game

December (You know its Christmas when Slade turns up)
City started the month in 21st place a point from safety. The month started with more court defeats for Sisu as they were refused permission to appeal against the ruling that the Council didn’t give state funded aid to A.C.L. Sisu didn’t appeal on this ruling but still had an outstanding court case against Wasps. City were in action and many fans were dreaming of who we could get in the Third Round as we travelled to League Two Cambridge for a Second Round Tie. United had just about sneaked past Dover away in a replay. No trouble for the home side in this game as it was a case of square pegs in round holes for City as we crumbled to an embarrassing four goal defeat, all goals coming from Luke Berry. Fans anger turned on temporary manager Mark Venus who was also in charge of selling off Ryton for houses. This is not the first time City had lost by four goals or more in the F.A Cup; in fact it has happened ten times before but never to a lower division team. The next day a City XI lost at Stratford in the Birmingham Senior Cup. Yet another cup was up next as City took on Crawley in the Checktrade Trophy at the Ricoh. An attendance of 1,333 was the smallest ever crowd to watch a 1st team game at the ground. City squeezed through with the only goal and drew Brighton’s U23 in the next round to be played next year. A tough trip next to see if City could stop the run of defeats as we played Southend but no chance as they scored early, Venus failed to make the changes early enough and City lost 3-1. It was now clear Mark Venus didn’t want the manager’s job as rumours emerged that Jimmy-Floyd Hasslebaink was to be lined up. The Dutchman turned the job down not happy about the size of the budget. John Hartson then was quoted in some sauces as the next manger but our former forward deigned any contact had been made. Another former player, Gary Caldwell was also mentioned. The 14th of December saw an anniversary no one wanted as nine years previous Sisu took control of a mid table Championship team who pulled in crowds of 14,000-20,000. Next home game was one many had been looking forward to, it wasn’t the opposition, Sheffield United but the fact it was on Sky. It was picked out as a big protest game as before the game fans were surreptitiously handed whistles which they blew when the game started and continued throughout the game. Fans tried to get on the pitch but were stopped apart from one fan that held up the game. Fans in white t-shirts spelling “Sisu out” were in the main stand above the directors box. City conceded first but levelled just after the break and were well in the game but then Mark Venus made some surprising substitutions taking off two big forward and throwing on two smaller ones suddenly City lost their way but it was then that fans started to assemble in the closed North Stand and made it onto the pitch. The game was held up for a while as the protest continued until the fans left peacefully. United then took the lead and went on to win the game. Chairman, Tim Fisher appeared on Talk Sport and C.W.R for a phone-in, claiming he saw ball boys cry at the Sheffield game and stating any season ticket boycott would result in a poorer team, in fact he seemed to be blaming the fans for everything. One thing he said that came true was a new manager as Russell Slade, no stranger to working this dodgy boards, became Sisu’s 10th manager. Slade signed a contract until the end of the season with a task of avoiding relegation. His first game in charge was no fairytale as City lost 4-1 to Bristol Rovers with Lewis Page yet again looking extremely poor. Transfer rumours started to circulate that Stevenson was off to Brentford meanwhile the same club seemed interested in loaning in Agyei. Rumours on the last day of the year, City renew interest in the Butts, Sordell off to Burton in a swap for Stuart Bevan and the Bradford defender Nathan Clarke reported to be coming in. For only the 6th time in our history City were away on New Years Eve a short trip to Peterborough and came very close to the first ever away win on this day but were deigned by a very late equaliser.

It could be argued that the current side is the worst in our league history and relegation looks almost certain unless Russell Slade can work miracles. If he does it will be an even tougher the following season and nothing will change until Sisu leave or the club is folded lets hope 2017 will bring some much needed cheer after all it will be the 30th anniversary of the F.A Cup win.

Hi Vicky,

No didn't go to the Checkatrade game my boycott of U23 teams is still on I think paying £10 to watch reserve team football is a massive rip off. The draw is today hopefully we can avoid Swansea reserves.

Harries is back I just hope he doesn't turn out to be the next Connor Thomas, he was never the same after his Liverpool experience.
