    Really nice gesture by the club yesterday to celebrate Vera Cohen and her sister Olga Halon being City fans since the 1930's. Vera aged 102 has been a season ticket holder since 1930 and Olga a few years later. Really good touch by the club, and I wish them good health and hope they both see us win the champions league.

    Season ticket holder since 1930 is mind blowing, surely no City fan can beat that, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the longest in the entire country? 88 years **** me !!!

    Great gesture by the club. What an incredible story they’ve both witnessed btw.

    Vera is possibly the oldest continuous (excluding WW2) SC holder in the country ? They both look sprightly for their age. It was good to be their and applaud their support of our club.
    Heartwarming.

    Absolutely, I think Pep thought the same as quite rightly he had a quick word with them as they went down the tunnel.

    The 1930’s are arguably our second most successful decade. You might have something there.
