Things We Think We Think #297

1. Just when you think City are turning the corner, they actually execute a startling U-turn and head back towards the shitheap they’d deftly extricated themselves from with back to back wins. Gah! 2. As a season unfolds, individual games become part of the wider, campaign long context. What to make of the Norwich and Ipswich wins after […]

REPORT: Birmingham 3 City 0

In the last week we had shown the bottle to come back from two down against Norwich and the maturity to go to Ipswich and dominate the game in a n easy win. So why did a trip to Birmingham, stuck in the bottom three on the back of seven successive defeats – fill us […]

REPORT: Ipswich 0 City 3

And so it continues, this blossoming of our team of majesty, drawn upwards towards glory by the coming of the Spring. Shrewd tactician Nigel Adkins smooths a path to the manager of the month award for March. Hull City, limber yet pacy, teak-tough yet elegant, swagger past yet another bunch of East Anglian losers, and […]

Things We Think We Think #296

1. The four successive home games that events conspired to produce, four games that were always going to have a significant bearing on our survival prospects, are concluded. And the verdict is in: we might, just might, be okay. 2. It didn’t seem that way at 10pm on Tuesday, in the aftermath of the 2-1 […]

REPORT: City 4 Norwich 3

Simply put, this was the best match of the season.. Our bipolar squad has been pummelled this season. They’ve let their guard slip time an again and have spent a lot of time on the canvas. None more so than on Tuesday when Millwall delivered a near-knockout blow (imagine that?) When Norwich took an unassailable […]

REPORT: City 1 Millwall 2

It’s always a struggle when penning these match notes to come up with original new introductions which easily convey the rank awfulness of a Hull City performance, and I’ll admit I’m in trouble here so I won’t bother. Simply to say that last night’s performance was one of the worst seen in an Allam-induced wretched […]

Things We Think We Think #295

1. Tuesday night’s draw with Barnsley illustrated perfectly why City are in serious relegation trouble, and why there’s no guarantee we’ll survive. Just as we followed up an impressive win at Nottingham Forest with a dismal no-show at Middlesbrough, so the encouraging victory over Sheffield United was conspicuously not built upon with a decidedly crummy […]

Things We Think We Think #294

1. Friday was quite the night — on and off the field. Which is rather how things have gone at City for quite some time, with talking points split roughly between that which occurs on the greensward and that which does not. Whether off-pitch activities were positive or not depends upon your point of view, […]
