Well, still trying to come to terms with it. Magnificent in the first half, woeful in the second. Typical City? Bayern won 7-1 at Roma so maybe a glimmer of hope yet.
Watched Liverpool get a trouncing last night “you can hear a pin drop in here” said Gary Neville, so much for the Anfield atmosphere!
Mario in trouble for swapping shirts at half time. What’s the big deal? Ex ‘Pool players up in arms. We’ve suggested it before but we feel he’s borderline autistic, surely Liverpool with their army of Docs should’ve spotted it?
Anyway popped down to the club today to sort out our tickets for Moscow home. Two for us and two for the kids, seems fair enough but it hasn’t gone down well with those on the Cup scheme who feel they’re missing out as they don’t have anyone to pass on free tickets to so could’ve paid for one and got one free if not on the cup scheme. Jon Cantrill’s written to the club so we await answers. Whilst there I spoke to a Blue who went to Moscow, got in the ground but was chucked out by City stewards. Reason was “we couldn’t complain about CSKA breaching the rules, if we let City fans in” Bollocks. Does our club REALLY think UEFA will inflict any sort of punishment on CSKA?
We’ve had a raw deal all round and it looks like some people at our club need a terrace lesson.
Now then, having seethed to read an article by a united fanzine editor about City’s Moscow visit, and having two of my letters to the MEN postbag, on Art Garfunkel and the sensational Sixties show rejected I’m really pissed off to see a letter from Les Holt in last night’s postbag, and fuck me, another one in tonight’s. One a week’s bad enough on some banal subject, but one a night is ludicrous. MEN or MUEN? You decide.
