All we are singing, is give us a goal

Dave Jones returns to Wolves on Saturday.

Hopefully it will be a happy return and not another crap result to add to the run of crap results we've been unduring since November 11th.

City have not won any of the last 13 games played. They have not scored a goal in the last 5 games and have not scored a goal in 2007.

It's shocking.

There has been a level of tolerance about this run. The take over, the lack of training facilities, injuries, small squad etc etc but when do you stop tolerating? Imagine if Lennie Lawrence was still in charge. There would be effigy's of dear old Leonard hanging from the Sloper Rd lampposts.

What has happened to Michael Chopra? One goal in the last 14 matches and that was a consolation as we we were battered at Hull.

The early season dream of Premiership football could still happen but it's going to take a monumental change in fortune. Incredibly, despite not winning since the 1 - 0 defeat of Burnley way back when, we are still just one point off the play off spots. So all is not lost.

The club and especially the fans need something to cheer. A win at Wolves would be a good start despite there being no City fans there to see it. Jez Moxey, the Wolves Chief Exec has put paid to that. With City fans banned the players are going to have to find it in themselves to go out and get the right result. The result that picks up three points for the Bluebirds and sticks two fingers up to the Wolves board of directors.

Those flying overhead in the blimp will have to subdue their celebrations if we score so they don't upset the balance of the big airship they intend to fly in.

Good luck also to the protesters who are leaving South Wales before it's light to take part in the march through Wolverhampton to demonstrate against the decision to ban City fans. Thank you to all the other football supporters including those from Wolves themselves who are supporting the protest. Have a peaceful and trouble free morning.

On the pitch Neil Alexander could find himself on the bench behind new signing David Forde. The Irishman who signed on January 1st could make his City debut. Peter Whittingham could also start as City look to freshen up the team. New striker Jason Byrne is expected to be on the bench.

The bars at Ninian Park will be open with 1,000 places available for people to watch a beam back of the game. Kick off is at 1pm.

Come on City.
