I didn't go to Wembley and paid £115 for a ticket at Blackburn and got chucked out before kick off for singing.

16 and foolish. Wouldn't mind I didn't even drink then really.

There are 2 games I regret missing. 1-6 at the swamp and Napoli away in CL. I was in Abu Dhabi for 3 months. Obviously the 1-6 won't be beaten for god knows how many years. You win some, you lose some lol!

Other than the 6-1, the 4-2 victory away at Stamford Bridge a couple of seasons ago. Watched it on the TV and could not believe what I was seeing, was quite unbelievable. Of course there was also the Bridge and Terry handshake saga as well.

4-3 against Spurs would be another big contender, another one was the 3-2 win at Blackpool last season, not just because of the game, but because it would have been a great trip.

The 10-1 Huddersfield

I was at Sheffield Poly at the time and my mates were over for the weekend. Only home match I missed all season

Was watching the results coming in on the Telly and it came up

City 10 (ten) Hudd 1

In case anyone thought it was a typing mistake!

home - the 4-1 over the rags in 2003-04 - the only home game i missed that season. i was on a business trip to the states and flying back that day. i didn't know the result until after i landed the following morning when my cab driver, who was a big blue still on a high, took great delight in telling me. (i think he was secretly wishing i was a rag to rub it in though).



IS IT REALLY YOU!!!!?!?! Hows Devon mate?


apparently not. i have no connections with devon. sorry!


He thinks it's Webby

Blackburn away winning promotion. I got a ticket in the Blackburn end. Had a hangover and thought fxck it. I am not watching it in their end rather be in the pub. Went to a ton of away games that season as well. Gutted when I saw us all over the stadium and on the pitch. Pub was fun though.

I missed the Derby win on the Munich 50th anniversary. Been to the Swamop a ton of times and never seen a win yet. Bxstard.

The 5-1. I went to every home game that season, but didn't have a season ticket then. I worked for the Company that went on to own Birmingham FC and the owners were into football. They knew I was a City fan and had promised me tickets in the Main Stand so I didn't bother getting tickets. Inevitably let me down on the day.

Exactly the same with me mate. Only game I missed that season and was due to flu. Those 90 minutes would have cured me.
