Honours even at the Reebok on Saturday, a disappointing game but a point earned that sees us slip slightly to ninth place.

A brief issue this Easter Monday with requests and league results.

Next Game: Saturday 29 March 2008, 3pm, Birmingham City (away)

OPINION: THE NAME IS BOND

Not sure if mention has been made of this in MCIVTA or not. Courtesy of an email from Donny Schreier at MCFC Supporters NYC, the following is a link to an amazing Granada TV documentary covering the fall of Allison / rise of John Bond in 80-81.

The documentary is split into 6 parts on Youtube and is fascinating viewing for any football fans, not just City fans. Some other great City moments on there too!

REQUEST: BLUES VIEWING IN NEW YORK

Is there anyone out there who will be watching the City/Chelsea game in a New York bar (assuming it will be broadcast)?

If so, I’d be grateful if you could let me know where it might be shown.
