Maybe a reasoned post & some of you maybe quite content with the circumstances, doesn't take way that performance was a unacceptable shambles.

Only good thing to come out of that game was how average some of our squad are, a wake up call for Bielsa & Orta, I suspect they are just as shocked as many of our fans.

Marcelo can seriously start planning for the future now sifting out the deadwood, there's enough there to start a bonfire on the 5th November :fire:

What I'm saying is don't get wrapped up in the current media love in. We are decent but nowhere as good as is we are being portrayed imo. (The squad as a whole)
That's probably true Mjs.

Performances and results will illustrate how good we are.

A good performance at Anfield doesn't make us World Club Champions.

I'm still positive that we'll do well this season and could even finish as high as third

But if Bielsa puts out a team like that in the FA Cup third round, then I definitely won't be watching it.

I concur once again, don't see us relegated but not quite so confident as 3rd :) :) :)

We do seem to go about our business very slowly, has always been the case, at least we have got it right to a certain degree over the last couple of years

Grayson use to always say we have "irons in the fire", truth was we had none or they had no benefit to us whatsoever!

Makes me shudder reading that 64. Always, always "irons in the fire" which always amounted to absolutely nothing or absolutely unacceptable standard of player

Larry was too occupied dipping his wick elsewhere whilst Uncle Ken was ripping out the heart of our club

I think irons in the fire in those days equalled Ken Bares is gonna flog Becchio, Howson, Snodgrass, etc whether you or I like it or not.

Thank God we got that parasite Bates out of our club.

I still haven't forgiven Lorimer for being Bates puppet then for the prices of a few pints = shameless.

I thought irons in the fire was what Tiger Woods wife did after she's heard he'd been cheating on her
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Its no coincidence that Man City have won this cup 5 out of the last 7 seasons. The reserves cup is pointless. Even the top 10 teams in the Championship tend to give it a miss these days. The whole idea of the cups is the trip to Wembley for the fans and that isn't happening anytime soon, well in the numbers to make a great atmosphere anyway.

I didn't see the game but it sounds like our reserves are no match for Hull never mind City.
