First game was City v Bury 1964, it ended 1 - 1 somebody called Colin Bell scored for Bury, then our keeper injured his hand I think, no subs then, so went on wing. He duly scored equaliser Harry Dowd his name hence my sign on name.
I should have known then I was in for an interesting journey, I obviously have had many high and low points, winning the old first division with Bell, Lee, Summerbee, Nelly Young et al was fantastic, I was so young then and thought we would be great for many years, winning leagues and all. The rest as they say is history, don’t want to mention the low points. However the year we won the prem was awesome the Aqueroooooo moment, the irony of beating the rags to the title in added time was the icing on the cake.
The football we are playing now is some of the best I have ever seen. I cannot get to games now, to many age/logistical issues, I watch games on streams and listen to radio. Being a City fan of so many years standing there is always a small bit inside me that says this wonderful time can’t go on! I just will keep enjoying it!
Anyway that’s me introduced, hope it wasn’t to boring.
Nice introduction HDS; I hope you'll enjoy your posting on here and we'll look forward to hearing some of the stories you've amassed over the years.
Your recollection of Harry Dowd (great 'keeper, by the way) having to play on the wing after getting injured, just shows what a different game it was back then.
Times change, but City goes on for ever.
