    Age 55, fan since my first match in 1961.

    Passion even greater because the glory days I remember so well are (almost) here again.

    What else counts?

    First started watching the Blues when George Poyser was manager. Lost my passion for the club when John Bond was appointed manager. Loathed the spiv. Hughes had to go but the manner in which that twat Cooke went about it is sickening.

    Living in Australia,I have become a little removed.
    The faith never wavers though,and thank god my son will never have to see the likes of Mike Walsh,Micky Horswill,Peter Bodak pulling on the shirt as I had to.
    Moving from Maine rd.,affected the atmosphere more than anything.
    Seen us win the league cup in 76,but it's a long time between drinks.

    If youve already watched this, watch it again....
    nothing pleases me more than to see these types of lads coming through at the club, they are like us fans out on the pitch- but miles better at footy.
    Also like already mentioned theres Superman, SWP, Ned etc. Keep the faith - the futures still well and truly blue ;)

    Im 52 ,season ticket holder since I was 11 years old, was at wembley for the 1969 cup final and every final since then,was priviledged to be a fan when we dominated U*D including best,Law ,Charlton etc for years.
    Seen everything regarding managers,coming and going,but really dissappointed with the way MH has been treated.
    Who the F**k thinks Brian Marwood is the footballing guru who can guide us to be where we want to be?Is he or Cooke as passionate as us?Obviously the answer is no and when the next payday comes along away they go.Whereas no matter what happens we will still be here.
    But in answer to the OP i'm stll passionate about City and like alot of others go to extreme lengths to watch City home and away.
    But at the moment think when will we learn?

    City of course
    Football has changed not just City and IMHO for the better, we see the some of the world's greatest players now and as a supporter of nearly 50 years then I can say I've never been so excited about City due to the media and especially the internet I'm into football every day firstly City and then football in general use to be just the Pink and Shoot

    Th only draw back is that the former players association will die out soon but when you look at players like Rosler and Goater we will still have players in the future who become blues when their playing career ends

    Reminds me of Reid's sacking.

    That was the last one were I knew it was a terrible mistake.

    SWALES OUT!

    51 years old and saw my first game in 1967. I feel just as passionate and connected to City as I ever did. Yes the club has changed, but so has the whole game of football. Lets face it, with the introduction of the Premiership it's become as much as business as a sport. Can't say I'm overly enamoured with that situation, but times have changed, and so must the club if we want to compete at the highest level in the modern game.

    Whatever your views on the whole Hughes situation one fact remains. My club still has a better chance of winning silverware over the next few years than at any time since the 70's. I look forward to what's still to come.
