We all know that some who support City’s rivals (both fans and those who write professionally in a negative manner about City) try to downplay our history. So today is a day we should highlight over and over again. I’m not someone who believes we should focus on activities for decades ago but I do believe we should challenge those that try to ridicule us or say we have no history.

So on this day in 1934 it was claimed City had a million fans on the streets welcoming the club back with the FA Cup. Full story and film here (The latest free article on my website):


I‘m sure it may surprise those who believe football history is all about certain clubs, who were successful during a period when we endured our worst ever period.

Made up story I’m afraid, as City didn’t win anything before 2008, as you well know…………..

There's a difference between history & success & the glory hunters on social media are thus
Raggies don't mention pre '1992, dippers don't mention pre 1970 & Chelsea fans have no recollection of having 8k at Stamford Bridge before Mathew Harding bankrolled them
