    Whenever we win the coin toss.

    More at the link:

    Should the Blues win the coin toss from now on, Pep Guardiola’s men will opt to attack towards the South Stand in the second half.

    Working together with our Official Supporters Clubs and the 1894 Group, City will introduce the change in a bid to reinforce home advantage at the Etihad Stadium.

    It is hoped that by kicking towards the Blues’ vocal singing section, while the opposition shoot away from their travelling supporters, Guardiola’s side will have an edge.

    Kevin Parker, General Secretary of the Supporters Club, explained: “It has been a combination of an idea from both the fans and the Club.

    “Kicking towards our singing section in the second half might give us an advantage over the opposition.

    “If you look at some of the stadiums around the country, they seem to have a preference of kicking towards the Kop, the Stretford End, the Holte End or the Clock End, for example.

    “The younger fans in the Family Stand are always very vocal but the plus point with this idea is that the opposition will no longer be kicking towards their fans in the second half, while we will be kicking towards our singing section.

    Kicking into the North stand in the second half is far better for my eyesight, as I sit in EL304. Bastards!
