    I know for a fact that both the Doves and Badly Drawn Boy go to most games as they all sit opposite me in Colin Bell stand Lvl 2 they sit below the big screen on the front row, the lad from Kid British sits near us too.

    Elbow: We're just like Manchester City
    Elbow's drummer Richard Jupp believes the band's slow rise to success is just like that experienced by his football team Manchester City.


    The Bury rock band formed in 1991 but didn't hit the big time until their fourth album, The Seldom Seen Kid, went double platinum in 2008.

    They further cemented their position at the top when their next album, Build A Rocket Boys, went to number two in the charts in March this year.

    Jupp is now hoping City can follow suit by building on last season's FA Cup victory and confirming their place among the Premier League's biggest clubs.

    'You could mirror Elbow with City. It has been a bit of a slow burner for the band - we've been together for 20 years now and it's amazing,' he told the Sun.

    'A couple of tracks, Grounds For Divorce and One Day Like This, were the big players and they did us a load of favours.

    'That's what makes our path so similar to City. We've been under the radar for so long.'

    Elbow this week saw Build A Rocket Boys nominated for the Mercury Prize, giving them a chance to become the first act to win it twice, following their success in 2008.

    Don't know about their football teams, but they are real ale drinkers and are about to launch their own cask beer called Build a rocket boys produced by Robinsons Brewery, launching it at the Manchester food and drink festival in October!

    I sing in a band called Elbowroom and I'm a massive blue.

    We get mistaken for Elbow (even though we sing at weddings and corporate functions)

    I shall take the praise for being the Blue in Elbow........ room
