You do all realise that City lost 7-2 at Wolves in our first away match of the 1955-56 season? (But we did go on to win the Cup)
So if/when we lose tonight it's an omen for our winning the CL next summer.
I can remember when the terraces (as opposed to the stands) were always referred to as the "popular side". Never heard that for years. There was also the "paddock", a standing area below the main stand seats.
"Midfield general" was also used for someone like Merlin (only not as good)
