You have to say its typical City.
England lost their last match at the old Wembley.
Lost their last game at Selhurst Park 2-4 to. Dave Whelan's leg as well.
Speaking of Dave the leg, Wigan's last match at Springfield Road was that 99 division 2 playoff against us, when Dickov equalised to make it 1-1, and the Goat settled the game at Maine Road. Not sure what happened in the final...
What's all this about Whelan's leg? Did I miss something?
Someone was telling me he broke his leg the other day, have to say it was the first I'd heard of it, so I'm a bit skeptical as to the veracity of the info.
Dave the leg why what happened to his leg not heard about that!!!
"Typical City" isn't just about negatives, even though they cemented the saying. Take the 3-2 Aguero winner for example.
If someone had the time to compile the list of typical City moments you wouldn't hesitate in taking back the "lol".
The biggest one is that we were the only club ever to be relegated from England's top division as champions, and we scored the most goals that season (obviously conceded the most too). No one will ever beat that.
We have it better than most yeah but it's also context. We have that lot as rivals and underachieved for the size of the club for 4 decades. When we went down to the 3rd tier in the late 90's, we were the biggest club to ever do so and we then won back to back promotions on the last day each time. One of which we scored twice in injury time to take to penalties.
There's been more drama over the years at City than any club in terms of last day of season survival/promotion/title winnings/relegations.
There's been several times when we've been leading the race for promotion, only to appear to fuck it up and then scrape through and similarly with title wins.
Typical City is having a shite season and fighting relegation, playing an inform Spurs side who are in the top 6, in the cup, being down to 10 men and 3-0 down at half time and winning 3-4 in added time.
Typical City is keeping the ball in the corner thinking 2-2 will keep you up, like we did in 1996, then realising with 90 seconds left the bloke in the crowd with the radio who the manager had trusted with his job, was incorrect and we neeeded to win. Ensuring relegation. And yes that paragraph is true. A random fan with a radio shouted to the bench that we needed to hold on for a draw, which we did, only to be wrong.
We've won the league 4 times in our history and the last 3 from 1968 onwards have all been down to last day wins, two of which we pipped Utd marginally.
When we say "typical City", it's because we never do anything easy and never will, rather than overall lack of success. It's losing when winning seemed inevitable and it's winning when losing seemed inevitable.
There's bucket loads of examples but I'm going to sleep.
And then draw the team down the road in the next round, the bastards!
