No history? A story lurking behind every name. Yes, even you, Laurent Charvet.

To these the task of writing a clear new page in the 120 year annals of MCFC

Write it bold in letters a hundred feet high, for all to read. Manchester City: Together and proud and a little bit giddy.

    The great, very good, good, average, mediocre, awful, and downright awful all on the same page....but, I think, we love them all.

    Please write the next chapter on Sunday, City.

      True....on another City blog following the victory at Newcastle, I wrote that it was an epoch making day for City and all our fans everywhere....

      I think I was 100% wrong...Sunday,13th May 2012, due to the manner of the victory, was THE ONE that will go down in our non-history.

      Sergio Aguero, what a finish, a steal at the price...Atletico have an eye for a foward, haven't they?

Victim of great Winona Ryder trouser theft; bitter, confused and maladjusted. Watching City since 1974 with fluctuating amounts of disbelief.
