Oh no, not another Year’s review

As John Lennon sang, “another year’s over a new one’s just begun.” They say supporting City is like a rollercoaster ride but I do not see any ups. It is more like a helter-skelter ride whizzing in a downwards spiral at ever increasing speed. Sisu have again been the real bugbear of the fans as the protests have stepped up throughout the year as attendances have plummeted. In 2016 we have used 47 players in all competitions only two more than last year this is the joint highest in our league history along with 2014. From those players 14 came in on loan, the third highest in our history but one fewer than last year. This year we have earned 45 points the lowest since 2011, some thirty down on last year. We have scored 48 League goals, nowhere near our worst which was 1995 where we scored only 27 times. We have conceded 60 league goals seven more than last year. The most ever conceded in a year was 1926 where we shipped 103 goals.


January (Sick and tired of you’ve been hanging on me)
City started the year in 4th place, 3 points behind the automatic promotion zone and eight points clear of 7th place. New Year’s Day provided good and bad news for City fans as Armstrong had his loan extended to the end of the season but it looked like we would loose Kent. The second day of the year saw City travel to that not very happy hunting ground of Crewe. A large following went up the M6 to the Railway town so much so some City fans couldn’t get a ticket on the gate and didn’t gain entry. The first team of the year was, in goal Charles Reece-Cook, with Aaron Phillips, Sam Ricketts, Chris Stokes and Ryan Haynes at the back in midfield we had John Fleck, Romain Vincelot, Jacob Murphy, Joe Cole and James Maddison with Adam Armstrong up front. City tore into the side that would be relegated leading 4-0 at half time. City ran out winners by 5-0 with Armstrong scoring a hat trick and missing an open goal, three players came off the bench, Gael Bigirimana, Jim O’Brien and for the very last time Ryan Kent. Kent returned to Liverpool to play in a F.A Cup tie he spent the rest of the season in the Reds reserves before moving to Barnsley on loan this season. City were active as Cole signed to the end of the season and we signed Peter Ramage a defender. He is not the first Peter Ramage to play for City, another one, a forward made his debut in 1927 played 28 games and scored 7 goals. Bizarrely the next day City signed someone else that shared the name of a former player, this time it was Stephen Hunt, the modern midfielder would be a shadow of his namesake. Another signing had everyone scratching their heads as an Australian born midfielder was signed from an American team, his name Andy Rose. A few days later former Chairman Mike McGinity died. His spell in charge spanned 2002-2005, maybe best, or is that worst, remembered for sacking Eric Black after a 5-2 away win at Gillingham. First home game of the year was a big one as 15,000+ fans turned up for a local derby against 3rd placed Walsall. It ended all square with Marc-Antoine Fortune, coming off the bench for his first game of the year. After a very long wait the train station at the Ricoh was finally opened but because of lack of trains it couldn’t be used by anyone watching football, rugby or going to a gig at the Arena. Next up it was the surprise League leaders in the shape of Burton Albion, the biggest crowd since our return to the ground some 17,000 turned up to see the game. Peter Ramage made his debut but City slipped to the first home league defeat of the season and started to loose touch with the top two. Ruben Lameiras and Marcus Tudgay both came off the bench playing for the first time that season. With the transfer deadline not far away rumours started to fly around about City players, in particular James Maddison as Spurs were said to be preparing a five million bid for him. Next up was an away trip to Southend for the first time in nine years. The top two scorers were missing as Stephen Hunt made his debut. Suddenly City looked a bad side and despite former City player Gary Deegan being sent off The Sky Blues lost to the heaviest defeat of the season, 3-0, were the wheels coming off? The last game of the month gave City a chance to end the three league games without a win as we took on Scunthorpe at home. A new defender made his bow in the shape of Martin Lorentzson, a former Swedish international fullback he seemed just the ticket for City, Andy Rose also made his debut coming off the bench but it was a poor performance as City lost again to complete a poor month.

Thanks for the card btw

Well obviously Dimmy Fisher took his Talk Sport script he'd used home with him.  I kept saying "He said that rubbish on Talk Sport" trouble is Dimmy you're talking to fans who have been through it too often and aren't taken in any longer not a bunch of Presenters who know nothing about Cov City FC and what Sisu have done to it & the fans    I was waiting for someone to mention the money paid into the court cases....well done the last caller,   I was fedup of hearing Dim Fisher going on about how he had to "balance the books" (Talk Sport Script) yes well Dim if your MASTERS didn't keep throwing it away on one court case after other we'd have money to balance those books and buy players....do you really think we're that stupid?   He even said "The club do not pay the legal fees"  don't try that one Dimmy, did Joy tell you to come up with that if ever you were asked about money & court cases?   nono  tut tut that didn't work did it?       We've been screwed over too often Dimmy  don't try it.

Well had the media talking about us.....Dim Fisher was on Talk Sport saying the usual things....Though what the Presenters picked up on was "The Owners Don't Care"  we know that but the Media have heard it out of Dim Fishers mouth....they said he was too honest   funnytvprog  no he slips up. wait until tonight.

Thanks Choccy P.
