    Looks like they have opted for an all City line up on the musical front. If United were to do somthing similar they would have to go for Chas and Dave, Blur and Status Quo.

  2. …and a Stone Roses / Smiths reunion.

    Doves would be worth the price of admission.

    Johnny Marr is a Blue – are you suggesting that the SMiths were rags fans Bishopville?

  4. The Pope says:

    Hm, while what I’ve seen on the net the new shirts look fabulous – I won’t be going to the gig though, Doves are just so dreary – which is the same world I’d use to describe their City song.
    “liiiive f’Citeeeeeeh” he moans over a rejected Cbeebies tune.
    Sky have adopted it too haven’t they?

  5. Jimmy Grimble says:

    Excellent news, I love the new shirt and now I get to see the Doves for free too!! Imagine the rags giving their fans something for nothing like this! Now wake up!

    at the end end of the day the only way to challage the big four in this day and age is having the financial capabilty. simple.
    you just got to live with and roll with it.
    waited all my life.the biggest highlight for me was the FA Cup against Spurs and we lost.

  7. I guess Oasis are washing their hair that day

    Oasis need to pull their finger out. Gutted. They play a free show to 40,000 people when a generator brakes down but they dont play for the good of City? Thats just crap if you ask me..
