'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hopes fading for next City win

Once again, demonstrating our low expectations of the club ( isn't that just typical City !), not many of you believe we're going to win some, or any of our remaining games before the end of the season.

With home fixtures against Fulham and Arsenal and tricky away trips to Villa and Blackburn, it's not surprising that so many of you are pessimistic about our chances, especially given the wretched run of straight defeats we're suffering.

The last couple of performances have been more promising, even though we were still beaten. A combination of bad luck and dodgy decisions seem to be following us from game to game at the moment, but fortunes must surely change soon.

It's not like Pearce to shirk a challenge, so why not use the last four games to blood the youngsters in preparation for next season. At this stage, apart from missing out on prize money for finishing up the table, it doesn't really matter if we get beaten and the time should be used wisely to give more fringe players experience of playing in the 1st team.

I really can't see point of continuing with the likes of Reyna, Sibierski, Thatcher, Mills, maybe even Barton if he's going to be off. They all seems to be going through the motions for various reasons and are just holding the development of younger players up. Come on Stuart, enough's enough !

Seems to me there's something seriously wrong behind the scenes which needs sorting out quick - perhaps backroom needs a refresh along with the squad

Can't be much wrong behind the scenes judging by the way the Youth team have performed this season. Our good run earleir in the season coincided with a settled injury free team. Once we get everyone fit and one or two new faces brought in I think the team will be back on track and can look forward to a successful new season.

Yes but the academy is totally separated from the 1st team with different coaches and structures. Many of the 1st team backroom staff are from the KK era, which is probably the root of the problem
bluetone
...the reserves have not done too badly either...
alphieblues
I hope Pearce is given another season to establish himself, with his players. I think he'll become a good manager.

Time to forget the above woeful statistics. The players need every encouragement from us in the remaining four matches.
