‘I haven’t experienced emotion like that since I was in the Shed End watching JT lift our first league title in 50 years’, sobbed City fan Noel Brown.
‘I remember the fans singing that Ivor Novello-winning ‘Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea’ song as Jose and the lads did a lap of honour. Good times’.
When asked how long he’d been a City fan, Noel said: ‘Years mate’.
‘I’m not one of those plastics who jumped on the bandwagon when Pep took charge. No, I even remember the dark days when we spent £25m on Joleon Lescott’.
Another City fan, Ian Gallagher, claims this year’s title race between Liverpool and City was even more exciting than supporting David O’Leary’s young Leeds side all the way to the Champions League semi-finals.
‘Marching on together! Ah, those were the days’, beamed Gallagher.
‘Those young Leeds players were absolutely fearless. They could take on anyone and beat them – and that was just in the streets after a night out’.
City ‘die-hard’ Curtis Marr believes the club’s latest title victory surpasses the achievement of the Blackburn Rovers side he supported during the 1994-95 season.
‘I remember going to Anfield that day thinking they’d roll over so that United wouldn’t win the league’, recalled Marr.
‘Clearly, the Spice Boys didn’t get the memo coz they went and beat us 2-1’. But thankfully, United had Andy Cole up front that day and they drew at West Ham’.
It was great to clinch it at Anfield. It’s the only time those [email protected] have watched anyone lift the Premier League trophy.
