Real Madrid v City (UEFA CL) – Tue 18 Sep [3v2 loss]

I went into this match thinking I would have been happy with a draw and if we never got tonked we would lose no face.

A few of our members were at this match (Des and Mick) and were unfortunate to see some of the violence which marred this away match.

Des had purchased a MCFC Aberdeen flag and a bunch of 15 youths stormed the area they were drinking in and stole the flags whilst punching, kicking, throwing bottles and anything that came to hand. Mick took a bottle to the head which left him with a big scar and an expected broken arm after being kicked when down on the ground. It seemed that the Madrid Ultras were just interested in taking a flag as a trophy and weren’t worried about injuring woman in the process- scum!

Luckily after a police escort to the match and the following day in hospital it was identified that Mick needed stitches on a cut but is arm wasn’t broken.

Unfortunately this wasn’t the only violence, heavy handed Spanish Police waded in on City fans striking them with batons for no apparent reason. Luckily this was recorded on video and has been highlighted in the papers. It seems Spanish police Brutality is the norm rather than the exception after hearing accounts from Aberdeen, Bolton, Spurs and United fans.


Well enough about that back to the game and watch a match it was!
Madrid looked the strongest side and City were on the receiving end of chasing after possession. Madrid looked dangerous but City were coming back into the game and restricting Madrid to long shots from outside the box.

Then bang Dzeko scored after being put through on goal by Yaya. I screamed at the top of my lungs, it was almost orgasmic, but my wife complained as she had a sore head, I apologies and scraped myself of the roof. Sat back on the sofa and prayed!!

The delight was short lived when Marcello smashed a cracking stroke into the back of the net to make it 1v1.

A cracking free-kick from specialist Kolarocket put City back in front and I dropped to my needs, put my finger to my lips and went sssssshhhhhh.

But it was me who was to be silenced, from Euphoria to despair as Madrid scored 2 late goals, a nicely placed shot from Benzema and a lucky snap shot from Tranaldo which Kompany and Hart could both have done better with. I wont hang on this point as Hart and Kompany have been massive for us in the last few years!

I went up to bed sulking and dreading the next day, I shouldn’t get so tied up in the footie but it shows how far we have come when I am upset by a 2v3 defeat away to the best side in world football.

Speaking to my friend the following week and he told me how nice the Madrid fans were and how they thought City were the best fans they had seen! Fair play to them, it shows a minority can spoil it for everyone, I must admit I felt mighty proud hearing the City fans booming at the Bernabau.

To make matters worse Borussia Dortmund won the other group game on the night defeating Ajax 1-0 in Germany leaving City playing catch up. I believe if we have any plans on progressing we must beat Dortmund at home in the next group match!

City v Southampton (League) – Sun 19 Aug [3v2 win]

First game of the season and I drove down to this match with Des, Scott and Steve.

Tried out our new season tickets and they are in a cracking location together on the half way line.

Almost identical match to the QPR game at the end of last season ending in 3v2 after we took the lead and went behind in the match.

Goals from Tevez, Dzeko and Nasri were enough to seal the 3 points and set City off to a successful start to the season. I can’t handle these 3v2 matches, bring back the 1v0 wins :)

Nasri and YaYa celebrate the end of Ramadan!

City v Chelsea (CS) – Sun 12 Aug [3v2 win]

Watched this match in a pub in Banff when we were away celebrating my mates Birthday, me and my mate Dave nipped off to local pub and what a cracking day we had. Pub was full of friendly locals and a guest appearance from a Elvis impersonator.

Great result and the first piece of silverware this season thanks to great goals from Yaya, Tevez and Nasri.
