Novenber 75, hmmmm Month and Year I was born, 25th to be exact.
First Game I can't possibly recall as have a poor memory but I knew I was a City fan from an early age, I'm what you could call an odd one
Late Dad was both a City and United fan in his youth, a Mancunian of course, but defected to United like other Mancunians back in the day, my Mum a Scouser and Liverpool fan but recently gained a fundness for Portsmouth FC seeing as she chaperones two patients to home games. Yes I'm in Portsmouth although were raised here and Longsight, Manchester. You could say City chose me, in School I never watched football until I was about 16, partly down to the fact we were rarely ever on TV anyway. Bed early anyway and Dad had control of the doofa. Oh the days of listening too the footy on my little Radio and that guy on TV reading the final scores out, oh and Teletext.. I played Footy in School and after School of course but, it wasn't until a friend introduced me to Subbutteo at aged 13 that I got thinking. Had to wait a month until I had enough cash for my own team, so I used my friends Luton Town in black and white until I could buy my own.
Got to my local news agents after School one day and looked through the team he had in stock, all the usual teams sigh aka the Rags, Liverpool, Spurs, Newcastle, Arsenal and even Portsmouth, "What team you after son" he said, then it hit me out of nowhere, "Manchester City" I said. He said give me two weeks and I'll have it in for you, so another two weeks of Luton Town it was lol. Why Pompey? Because my Dad was in the Royal Navy and Pompey was once Britain's biggest Naval Base, not no more though, now it's Student City. Manchester has always been my home, my Aunt and cousins are Season Card holders. So ever since the age of 13 I've supported City and only City.
Fave players were White, Quinn, Rosler, Goater, Kinkladze, Wanchope, Dickov, Horlock
I'm a Manchester City Blogger and have been for 16 years.
