Sorry for your lossSo saddened by this.
It's been a month of losses. Getting knocked out of the FA Cup was one, albeit the least of them. A week ago we lost a beloved family member after a long illness, and now I only have two people back in Manchester who are still on this earth. City's decision to join this greedy gang adds to the sorrow. Except for two siblings City has been the longest relationship of my life and it looks like that's going too. I've met Bert Trautmann, seen promotions, relegations, false dawns, F.A. Cup wins & losses, Aguerooo, and recently ten years of near perfect football. I think Guardiola won't take well to this "super league", he's been happy in Manchester precisely because the league is so competitive and he won't want to be involved with a thing that's more about money than glory. I'd imagined local lad Phil Foden in the next ten years holding up trophy after trophy, yes even the quadruple, as City's captain, and that bright future looks less likely now. So i think I'll retreat even further into the past and go back to reading those dusty old articles about City by Eric Todd of the Manchester Guardian and re-live Bobby Johnstone's diving headed goal in the '55 Cup Final which I foolishly tried to copy on the concrete in the school playground.
