REPORT: Villa 2 City 2

Eating my way through some sugar mice on the way down to the raintown that is Birmingham I pondered if City could maintain their incredible run of form and keep the promotion dream alive and kicking or would they melt like a chocolate girl and, in terms of the playoffs, kiss this thing goodbye. Hoping […]

Things We Think We Think #322

1. Our minds continue to boggle at what’s happening. A season that seemed certain to feature a grim battle against relegation, whose ultimate outcome was unguessable, has transformed in the space of a few bewildering weeks to a play-off push that looks increasingly plausible. It may be the most stunning turnaround to a season…well, ever. […]

REPORT: City 3 Sheffield W 0

I had a right shock on Saturday lunchtime. Sinking pints with abandon, the assembled group’s conversation turned to football. Ehab’s statement, the recent run of gleaming form, the unlikely ascent of the league table. ‘It won’t last’ we growled, ‘foundations built on the shifting sands of Allam malevolence’. But one of our number was already […]

Things We Think We Think #321

1. City couldn’t quite carry their incredible league form into the FA Cup, with defeat at Millwall condemning us to an instant exit from the tournament.

Things We Think We Think #320

1. It wasn’t pretty to watch, and a -5 windchill rendered it a physically uncomfortable afternoon for the hardy souls in attendance, but there was a soul satisfyingly warm glow deep inside those fans filing away from the Circle after seeing City record a routine (for City anyway) victory that stretched the unbeaten run to […]
