Porto last night, pleased Roberto put out a strong team. Great start and great finish. East stand third tier folk miffed they were kicked out of their seats and for those fans without mobiles or computers totally baffling not to be informed.
Are Porto really complaining about the “you’re not incredible” chant to the Hulk – good job it didn’t get him mad.
Tonight Stoke went out, Sporting Lisbon went through in a dour match so we’re back to Portugal, very nice.
Ragmedia were poised with their “anything you can do City, we can do better” headlines after the rags went ahead after 5 minutes, but oh dear they lost but just scraped through. Athletic Bilbao next - watch out for the articles on how they beat (Atletico then!) them 3-0 (at
Maine Road) in 1957 – but there won’t be a mention of us beating them also 3-0 in 1969.
Anyway we are pleased to announce that King Of the Kippax fanzine number 195, should hit the outlet at Aleef (Corner of Cross Street/Market Street) on Friday February 24th and the selling points around the Etihad at the Blackburn and subsequent games.
KK195 is a 48 page A4 issue with a colour cover showing City fans enjoying the day in Porto with a caption – CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ? WE’RE HAVIN’ A LAUGH! (so much for the Arsenal and Chelsea taunts eh!
This issue includes a Stuart Brennan interview, stuff on the press and media, Tevez, referees, rich list, racism, Mourinho, Capello, Redknapp, travelling to the match, Us and Them book advert, Twitter, and all the usual regulars – Ged, Burf., Neil, Gene, Uncle Ryan, Paul, Tony, David C ., Sean, Bryan, Tom, Richard, Simon etc…
It sells at just £2.50 (unbeatable value) and can also be purchased for £3.50 (inc P & P) from King Of The Kippax, 25, Holdenbrook Close, Leigh, Lancs, WN 7 2HL.
