We would like to wish Manchester City FC, their staff and supporters a very happy 34th anniversary today.
Considering they are such a massive club, with a massive council house ground, with massive curly stairways up the outside, a massive fan base with massive corner flags on their massive pitch, massive numbers of celebrity fans like Curly Watts and that singer Peter Kaye called a knobhead on the Brits, it really is an achievement to go 34 years without winning a trophy.
Then of course there is that famous boast that "Ciddee fans are all Mancunians, Trafford United fans are all Cockneys", so following, from the MCFC supporters' club website, are just some of their Manchester based supporters' clubs. Or are they?
Bath & Wiltshire
Blackpool And Fylde
Carlisle & District
Gloucester & Cheltenham
Isle Of Man
New York City
Spanish Blue Moon
Stretford & Urmston (Trafford)
My word, Manchester has expanded faster than Germany under Adolf Hitler. Wonder if there is now incessant drizzle in Dubai? And is there a Metrolink that runs to Thailand from St Peter's Square?
Anyway happy 34th anniversary MCFC and here's to the next 34 years. Hope you all enjoy this:
