2006/07 season review December-February


The month began with a 0-0 home draw against Watford on Sky - the only positive memory of that evening being the German market in town prior to the game.

Ahead of the AGM, the board announced that they were in talks with potential new investors. The first derby of the season saw us crash 3-1 at Old Trafford, followed by defeat on my birthday at home to Tottenham.

Bitter and Blue ran its 'half-term report', before City delivered a less than welcome Christmas present with a 2-0 home defeat by Bolton - with Nicolas Anelka delivering the blow.

The year ended more positively though with a Boxing Day victory at Bramhall Lane.


Back to back wins signalled the start of 2007 as we took maximum points against West Ham and Everton, before a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough forced a replay in which we triumphed.

A 0-0 draw at Bolton followed, and we took Francesco Coco on trial - which ended all too abruptly and subsequently saw us sign Michael Ball.

A woeful 3-0 home defeat by Blackburn then saw Stuart Pearce linked with the England under-21 job, but we rebounded by beating Southampton in round 4 of the FA Cup.


Another home defeat - this time to Reading then saw Pedro Mendes again in the wars against City.
To solve the goalscoring woes, Stuart Pearce turned to Emile Mpenza - the Belgian striker exiled out in Qatar.
A win at Deepdale saw the Wembley banners being dusted off, but there was a blow as Tim Flowers and Frankie Bunn joined Coventry as part of Ian Dowies regime, and the club announced a £7 million loss.
