Saturday night we met up in a Manchester hotel with City old boy Bill Leivers and his son Glen who’d come up from Truro for the game against Arsenal. We had an enjoyable evening chewing the fat on all things City, old and new.
Sunday dawned bright and breezy, and for a change it was pretty hot at Eastlands, before the ‘must win’ game against the Arse. Great atmosphere went even better after Sergio’s goal, and then…….did that really happen – a simple defensive header under no pressure two minutes later nearly went into our net but to our great relief went out for a corner. Over it came and Giroud who always scores against us but hasn’t scored for weeks, headed in unchallenged. Do we ever learn?
Kelechi cocked one up and Bony hit the bar I thought we put in a decent shift and a draw would’ve been a decent result some weeks ago but not today.
We left earlyish to flog a few zines which was a big mistake as we just got grief for the front cover, one Blue throwing a punch at Sue’s fanzines. Well perhaps we should’ve been a bit cleverer with the front cover and despite Pellers’ legacy of probs the Europa league, it would’ve seen churlish not to thank him for the 3 trophies in 3 years.
So we’re relying on West Ham to get at least a draw v the rags then a point at Swansea, who’ve just hit top form will do.
