Following on from my last thread about potentially missing a Christening to watch city I thought there must be some funny stories out there about people missing wedding, funerals job interviews etc. to watch city. So what’s the biggest occasion you’ve missed to watch a city game or biggest consequence good/bad of watching city? Sure there are better ones out there but as a young lad working in a supermarket as a student. I loved it, had loads of friends and good pay at the time. Anyway I called in sick to watch the Utd v City game on Thursday 10th November 1994. That’s right the night they beat us 5-0. To make matters worse my manager a Utd fan saw me in the pub and I ended getting sacked. On the days following 13th May 2012 I remembered this and laughed at the thought that somewhere in the world that bloke is gutted right now.
