Why Blue?

In 1929 my father took me to see my first City game and from that time on I was hooked. Of course in those days they played and beat some pretty good teams like Arsenal, Wolves, Bolton and Villa.

I would think that any father who introduced his kid to City’s brand of football today would be hauled into court and charged with child abuse. I am appalled that City are being beaten by such clubs as Barnsley, Millwall and Oldham, teams that wouldn’t have been able to give the reserves a decent game in the glory days. Come on City, wake up and smell the roses again.
