I have a ‘Why Blue’ that is quite boring, since it has nothing to do with cup finals or anything like that, but it’s still the real reason. When I was growing up in Sweden, most of my friends rooted for teams like Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, and a few for Aston Villa, Tottenham and Chelsea. The exceptions were (and are) rare. I felt that I didn’t want to be like everybody else, so I had to pick myself some other team. The reason it became City is that I thought they had the coolest name (I was nine and hardly knew any English). Since then I become more and more interested in City every year, and now I check the homepage pretty much every day. All that’s left now, is to actually go to Maine Road (If anyone wonders why Swedish kids get interested in English football, it’s because every Saturday we can watch one Premiership game on TV).
Opinion: If Curcic really is on the transfer list, buy him!! He’s a good replacement if Kinkladze decides to go.
