Very happy with Hoolahan…now who’s next?

by Thomas Rooney First things first – I am very pleased that we have finally captured the signature of Wes Hoolahan from Blackpool. We have been linked with him all summer and it feels good to actually get someone that we are constantly rumoured to be after – good work Glenn. The best thing about […]

Who’s a naughty club then? Blackpool report QPR to the FA for alleged illegal approach for Gorkss

Blackpool have reported QPR to the Football Association for an alleged illegal approach for supposed City target Kaspars Gorkss. A club statement said: On 11 June, Blackpool Football Club can confirm that it reported Queens Park Rangers to the FA for what it deems to be an illegal approach for defender Kaspars Gorkss. This matter […]

It was only a matter of time – QPR to offer £375k for Blackpool’s Hoolahan

QPR are set to launch a bid for Blackpool’s Wes Hoolahan with their shiny new money, according to the EDP website. The news won’t come as a major surprise to many as the R’s have certainly been one of the most active players in the transfer market this summer, but I was hoping my updated […]

2007/08 Review: March – featuring Blackpool, Watford, Coventry, Stoke, Sheffield United, Colchester and Bristol City

March wasn’t one of the best months in City’s season. It started with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Blackpool at Carrow Road. Two goals from Stephen McPhee gave the Seasiders a 2-0 lead going into the break, and although Jamie Cureton’s penalty halved the deficit with twenty five minute to play there would be no […]

2007/08 Review: November – featuring Ipswich Town, Watford, Plymouth Argyle, Coventry City and Blackpool

November kicked off with a new manager in the form of Glenn Roeder. A lot of people, including me, were rather uninspired by the board’s choice of new manager, and had been holding out for Paul Jewell. If only we knew then what we knew now. The first act of the Roeder regime was to […]

Poll Results: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

67% of voters agree with me and think the Foxes are for the drop. City’s weekend opponents Sheffield Wednesday only picked up 2% of the vote, so people are either extremely confident that Leicester are doomed or they don’t fancy our chances at Hillsborough on Sunday – probably both. Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or […]

Poll: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

It’s the final poll of the season (until I think of another one anyway). Southampton’s point at West Brom last night means there is still a real battle on for the third and final relegation place in the Championship, with the Saints, Leicester City, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City and Blackpool still not safe. I’ve had […]

Championship Predictions: 28th April 2008

Oh, the sweet feeling of being able to take a look at the Championship table without coming over a little peculiar. Here’s how I think the final league table will look: West Brom (81pts) Stoke City (81pts) Hull City (78pts) Bristol City (74pts) Crystal Palace (71pts) Watford (70pts) Wolves (70pts) Sheff Utd (67pts) Ipswich Town […]

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]

Poll Results: Who’s going down?

The results are in, and the people who have stumbled across this blog have spoken. The results are: Leicester – 47%. Norwich – 13%. Sheff Wed – 10%. Blackpool – 9%. Coventry – 8%. Southampton – 8%. Barnsley – 5%. Looks like the Foxes are favourites to claim the third relegation place, but own up […]

This weekend in the Championship

City could very well be safe after this weekend’s games – or we could just as easily find ourselves back within a couple of points of the drop zone with only two games left. The Happy Days Scenario The dream scenario for us would results something along the lines of Barnsley to beat Leicester, Blackpool […]

Championship Predictions: 31st March 2008

It’s getting harder and harder to predict how the Championship will finish, so for this week I’ve abandoned the BBC predictor and have taken a leaf out of Luke Skywalker’s book by trusting my instincts. I’m not interested in the play-off picture or automatic promotion at the moment. The only thing that concerns me are […]

Just when you thought it was safe…

I think I may have made a bit of a whoopsy. Like many City fans I’d all but put the 2007/2008 season to bed and was looking forward to a summer of lazing around the park and (hopefully) enjoying some sunshine. A tad premature it would seem. After a tremendous thirteen game unbeaten run which […]
