  1. Hopefully I'll be filming similar scenes from the home end at the Etihad next Wednesday !
  2. My order for two tickets in the home end lies in the hands of a city fan. He's currently in Munich so won't find out where we are until he's back. But yeah, two more in the home end somewhere.
  3. Like the insinuation that Barnsley fans can't afford cars
  4. Not at the footy but at Old Trafford cricket ground for a roses Natwest Cup quarter final. Got sat on the top tier of the only two tier stand in the ground at that time and fluked being sat with a load of Yorkshire lads. Midway through lancashires failed run chase, everyone has had a fair few beers, and this bloke looks up at the Natwest 'blimp' and declares ' tha's f u c k e d if that's only cashpoint tha can use' Much laughter ensued from all those within earshot.
  5. The village of Poynton (near me between Stockport and Macclesfield) introduced a 'shared space' village centre last year. Vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians all have an equal right of way. Kerbs have been lowered and formal pedestrian crossings have been replaced by informal crossings marked by contrasting brickwork on the road surface. I would suggest the scheme has made all road users more considerate to the others, although traffic can buid up on the main thouroughfare at busy times as traffic does move at a slower pace along the main pedestrian shopping street. But I do feel that it has introduced a much more pleasant atmosphere to the village centre from a pedestrains perspective.
  6. Was thinking similarly. Transactions like this don't just happen overnight so could have been progressed enough to be a huge consideration when taking the decision to release as many as we did as early as we did. Hopefully potential transfer targets have also been identified early and work is already underway behind the scenes. I don't know if it was the case or not but it seems like we did not pursue Fryatt, leaving him free to sign for Forest. And if we were in a position/made the decision to not go for Fryatt I hope that's an indication that we are looking at players of similar or better calibre. Of course there's always the possibility that even with new investment we may still not have been able to compete with Forest for Fryatt, which would be a disappointment.
  7. Potter is on holiday in Turkey until next Monday. Fact.
  8. Take the %C2%A0 off the end of the URL in your address bar
  9. That means Forest will be in for Fryatt then
  10. My son plays for a team in the East Manchester U8's league. Two of his team mates are in City's U8 elite academy - they've got 113 goals between them this season. That's about 20 games each, 15 mins each way. Could they do a job for us ?
  11. Wycombe at home is up there for me. Mainly because I'm a non sheffielder, only wednesday fan in my family so missed out on many highlights in my fledgling Wednesdayite career by virtue of not being able to get to matches. Wycombe at home I was there with my little one, who was 6 at the time. Sharing that with him, and seeing how much he was buzzing off the atmosphere around Hillsborough before the game, during the match, watching the post match pitch invasion and back in the pub afterwards was brilliant. Another highlight for me wasn't even a Wednesday match. His mum and all her family are Man Utd, we live in Manchester, he goes to school in Manchester, Man Utd are on telly pretty much 24/7. I thought I was running the gauntlet the first time I took him to Old Trafford to see them play when a mate had a couple of spare season tickets going. They beat Stoke 2-0 in a boring midweek game, two penalties. Stoke were still in Europe at the time so didn't bring many. The biggest cheer of the night was when Everton went 1-0 v City (Darron Gibson scored). Walking back to the car afterwards, cheeks clenched, I asked him what he thought...... 'It was alright .......Not as good as going to see Wednesday though dad' came the reply BIG sigh of relief all round ! I've not even had to work hard to make him a Wednesdayite ....... little weirdo
  12. Al Habsi expecting red as he walks to the ref, sees him brandish a yellow and gets the flock out of there sharpish before he changes his mind / realises he's pulled the wrong card out of his pocket !
  13. Whereabouts in Stockport are you ? My lad is playing at Woodley sports til about 1 so I'm driving up there after, then back home to Hazel Grove after the match....
  14. * The tram isn't running next Saturday due to work down the line in Oldham - replacement bus service is on in it's place from Oldham to Rochdale.
  15. I'm in Hazel Grove, bottom end, off Macc Road. Planning on getting train to Macc from Poynton so swerving Stockport for once! Just me and my 8 year old lad so may end up driving yet, having got tickets on the uncovered terrace, and having just checked the weather for Saturday !
  16. Still no news. End of play last Thursday the RMG recruiter had still not had definitive feedback ....... I dropped him a mail on Tuesday seeking clarification on my position in the process as have still not received a definitive NO from them, I've not had a reply yet. I'm assuming its bad news but would really appreciate the confirmation from them. If you are still waiting to hear from them it gives me a little hope that perhaps it is organisational culture to take their time .......
  17. I'm expecting feedback by the end of the week. The waiting is killing me. I felt it went well, my C.V. and experience are a pretty good match to what they are looking for, but they're looking for more than just that in an ideal candidate aren't they. I'd even done reasonably well on the online assessments ! Have you heard back from them re the Service Delivery Manager application ? If you have and want any further info about the interview dm me, we won't bore the masses. WatfordOwl has also been a great help with the process, providing lots of useful info, that I feel (hope) has given me a better chance of making an impresssion. Only downside is I think I may have been clocked by a mobile speed cam in Peak Forest on my way over.
  18. I've just completed the online assessments I'm not fick or anyfink ........but I'm going to go and lay in a darkened room for the rest of the day Jeez
  19. It's just a competency interview on Tuesday. I have some online assessments to complete today. Any info you have would be great - dm me and i can give you contact details. Cheers
  20. Thanks Watford - have I seen posted elsewhere that you work in I.T. recruitment ?
  21. Guess I was hoping somebody would say 'I work for them, and I'm interviewing candidates next Tuesday' Then I'd try and establish an online bond with them to try and steal a march on any other candidates Senwar, loving those wheels. Think I'll be able to pick some of those up in the Adidas Factory outlet near me in Stockport this weekend !
