|"Supporting City is bad for your health"|
Written by Uwes_Grandad on Sunday, 4th May 2014 12:07
Those final 20 minutes at Goodison Park nearly sent me into Cardiac Arrest.
I can't even begin to explain how nervous I was, given that our record at Goodison was horrendous. When Barkley scored that wonder goal, my head dropped and I thought the worst.
My mind began to imagine the headlines "TYPICAL CITY AGAIN" and then my thoughts switched to my mate, who is a Liverpool fan, and I imagined his face being contorted with joy at the fact that we'd conceded the title to the Scousers.
But this is City. We never do ANYTHING the easy way. But is this good for us? Or a burden?
I can recall many games where we've conceded to smaller teams and come back to win the game. I needn't remind anyone of our most famous example of a late comeback.
Firstly, I don't know what it feels like to win the league comfortably, because I've only seen City win the Premier League title once, and even then it was done at the last second by Sergio. And given the nature of the Premier League, we won't (if we do) win it comfortably this season as well.
But whatever happens, there's not a team in the world I'd rather support than City. We're successful, but we do it the exciting way. Entertaining football, passionate players, fantastic support, and a pony tailed centre back.
Could you ask for more?

Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
Matches of Yesteryear - Tranmere v U's 12/1/02 by wessex_exile
Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
