It was the build up to the Chimps league semi-final, and City cocked up the ticket sales.
On the night there was a lot of anticipation, and it was good to hear that the show pony wasn’t fit.
Some razamatazz before the kick off, and yes, I did wave the flag! Bet Ged didn’t!
And I did boo the anthem. As for the game I thought it was enthralling. Modric outstanding, strange that Spurs have been better since he left. Good saves from Joe and if Sterling ever decides to become a professional footballer we could’ve won it.
We then heard the news of the Justice for the 96, which is tremendous, but should’ve been sorted 27 years ago.
On the Wednesday the Youth team lost out to Chelsea 3-1, very unfortunately.
Last night we saw Dennis Suarez playing for Villarreal in the 1-0 win over Liverpool, which I fear will not be enough. Seville drew the other semi at Shakhtar 2-2, and there was much talk of Spanish teams not being knocked out of Europe by English teams. Funny, I thought we knocked em out of the Chimps League this season.
Finally, it’s April 29TH, the manumirror does a feature called ‘on this day’. Would’ve been good to reflect on City’s 2-1 win in the Euro Cup Winners’ Cup over Gornik, as we’re in the semi’s of the Chimps League.
HOWEVER they chose to feature the 1970 Cup final replay at the swamp between Chelsea and Leeds “the preliminary round of the Cup Winners’ Cup competition” Joe Mercer said at the time.
The 1933 Cup Final was mentioned though.
