I’m travelling to Paris in August and I’m forcing my GF to make a pit stop with me to Manchester to watch a game at the Etihad. I have no idea how purchasing tickets or anything works down there so I was just doing some searches on Google.

Came across a Quora post (for those of you who don’t know, it’s a website you can ask questions about anything) of a City fan responding to someone asking “why is the Etihad stadium always empty?”

Long story short I created a quora account then and there with the sole purpose of messaging him to get more info as I noticed he lived in England and based on his answer, knew his stuff. To my surprise he answered, and referred me to this forum! And here we are today. Just signed up yesterday. Thanks again @Marklr !

Never thought I’d meet a city fan on Quora. Lol. Didn’t even know that website existed, or that you could even send private messages to users on a website where you just ask people anything.

If you are forcing your girlfriend to make a pit stop at the Etihad she is the wrong girl for you.
Dump her now before things get serious. There are loads of girls out there but there is only one City.

We need photos of your Girlfriend and one of us will look after her for you during your trip if she's half decent.
Our standards are quite low. I agree about dumping her though.

Hahaha. It was actually her idea to see if it’s possible for us to make it there so I could watch a game. after seeing that it’s actually feasible I didn’t give her a choice. She’s as supportive as they get.

She’s definitely good looking, so no problems there for you. I can drop her off somewhere and we can go watch the game together. Never mind staying with her. She’s more excited to watch Mbappe and PSG though so she’s really on thin ice…

Bombs away on Tampa Bay
Went ten pin bowling last Sunday with my daughter. As we got out of the car the bloke in the car next to us wished me a happy father's day. I said thanks and then noticed a long sky blue key chain leading from his belt into his pocket and the City logo on it.
"You a City fan" I enquired and led to a conversation about a teacher at school 15 years ago telling students to watch the Premier League and he fell in love with the game and picked City.
A nice little exchange indeed.
I didn't ask him if he liked The Smiths (in case anyone was wondering....)
