City Will Have To Be United For Once

Reading Time: 2 minutes Let us leave the murky  politics and dubious finances out of this, and concentrate on what really matters – you, the Manchester City supporter. It is you who pays on a weekly basis, to watch and support players who earn more in a week that you will earn in a lifetime. We can take it […]

City Past And Present – Hello Or Hola?

city

Reading Time: 3 minutes This may be a controversial post for some, an unreadable one for others. Insults may fly out of Facebook.
