I attended the programme fair at Bowden on Sunday, and chatted to a few fellow Blues. Picked up the February 1937 Charlton v City programme, where City were in 8th place with 31 points, 6 behind leaders Charlton, but finished up winning the title for the first time. Rags were relegated.
I watched Sunday Supplement on catch up. Always good when Martin Samuel’s on. Ally Rudd is now in love with Charlie Adam, must’ve gone off Clattenburg?
Hardly a mention of City, all rags, Chelsea and Arsenal, whose performance of the season at Olympiakos was drooled over, but not a peep on ours at Sevilla.
M6 a bit busy to start with but eased up later, then over the A50 and M1 down to Leicester.
Bought a programme, though getting more and more disillusioned with modern programmes. However this one is a cracker with pages 25 to 47 dedicated to City. Well done Leicester. Spotted a Chinese couple wearing masks going into the away seats.
Kasper Schmeichel got a good reception from City fans, though he’s not always been too complimentary about our club.
0-0 then, should’ve murdered em, could’ve had a pen, but we couldn’t score again. First clean sheet without Vinny for ages.
So, that makes Watford a real pressure game, but if we play like we did at Leicester in the first half you never know.
Ps re 1878, Cityblue, Gary James reckons there were games played pre 1880, but the whole thing is a grey area, though most other clubs use a bit of licence - Everton, Stoke etc. Oh, and the badge was changed because City didn't have the patent - Eddie Phillips owned it!.
No place for points scoring on the KK blog.
If we'd had a vote on staying at Maine Road, i wonder how that one would've gone!?
