    It's barm so STFU.
    Bloody hilarious that was, it was a wet day at the Baseball Ground, Derby and the spot had disappeared in the mud. The ref paced it out but must have had short strides as it was only about 9 yards from the goal! Cue Big Joe giving him some right stick and getting booked. The groundsman then came on with a measure and some marker paint. We still got hammered though!

    You can't pick a year, just a date.

    Xmas day 1902 was the first time that Manchester City played Manchester United. The game ended 1-1, Billy Meredith scoring for us.
