Monday morning I was invited onto on the radio along with a Chelsea fan who was Ok and a Liverpool fan who was a bit misguided!
I made some points to the Liverpool fan re how I was asked to speak to Liverpool fans a few years ago re fan involvement when they were over the moon as Dubai looked like they were coming in. Also I recalled Pool fans’ euphoria in the pub (in Warrington) when Gillette and Hicks came in and the money they were going to spend.
Now, apparently they don’t need a Sheikh. Well they certainly did ten years ago, and how are they going to pay for redeveloping Anfield?
His final point was that because of their worldwide support (City’s record att: 84,000. Chelsea’s 82,000, Liverpool’s about 66,000!) they deserved to win the title over us! I happen to think that the football they’ve played this season is the reason they deserve to win the title. But c’mon Chelsea!!!
(Does that make me a clown)
Amazingly it was a nice fine dry night on Wednesday. Macca’s first for a pre match snack, then had a change of pitch, taking up missing Frank’s spot at the top of Joe Mercer way, as it was the third home game for selling KK214.
So a chance to meet fellow Blues I hadn’t seen for years. And you get the bonus of being serenaded by the rock group in City square. Great voice BTW of the lady vocalist
Big queues to get in so naturally we missed the goal. No Silva, assume he was injured, if not big mistake by Pellers.
And that was the good bit. It was then sideways, backwards, tedious football and inevitably, though we should have had a pen, 2-1 down before the end, then we scraped an equaliser, but couldn’t clinch the win.
On a day when it was announced that our players were the highest paid in world sport it was devastating to see that we won’t be ‘fighting to the end’.
There was a couple of good callers on Radio Manc who questioned the mentality of the team. Pellers reckoned the poor dears were mentally shot after Sunday’s game. I didn’t want to hear that.
Anyway got KK215 off to all the outlets yesterday so all geared up for subs/contributors postage and should hit the ground running on Monday night when we’d better be up for it on the pitch.
