City v Spurs (League) – Sun 11th Nov [2v1 win]

Left Aberdeen at 0900 Saturday morning & picked up members at Laurencekirk, Dundee & Edinburgh to make it three short of a full coach.

An 8 hour journey included a 45 minute stop for a meal etc.

An overnight stay in Manchester began by meeting in Weatherspoons Piccadilly at 1900, a couple of drinks later everyone went on their way, some night clubbing others for a meal, finally got to bed at 1am.

Travel bags were transferred in the morning to the coach & then it was off to the Townley for pre-match drinks.

City started well but could not score then on 20 minutes Spurs ran up the field & Caulker scored, helped by a rare Joe Hart fumble & poor refereeing not to say anything about the quality of the linesmen.

It was still 0-1 after a poor 1st half.

City started the second half brightly but it wasn’t until the 66th minute that  scored good work by Yaya and Silva.

City played really from then on despite Spurs changing 3 players.

Nastasic was switched for Maicon & made a big difference as soon as he came on. Dzeko took Tevez’ place and from a half chance once again scored the winner; leaving it until the 88th minute this time.

Gale Clichy took a well deserved Man of the Match Award with Zabaleta not very far behind.

The boys in blue hung on to the final whistle and thereby created a new City Premier

League Record of 32 unbeaten home league games. Brilliant stuff especially for City.

We met up at the Townley after the game & the coach left at 1600 and we were back in Aberdeen for 0030.

It was great meeting everyone again especially those from further away, hope you enjoyed it.

I would like to thank Des for all his efforts in organising the coach – it’s a big responsibility, and also to David & Richard for organising tickets for those who needed them

We would welcome picking up members from any other supporters club as we have approximately 10 seats available.

The cost for supporter club members is 50 pounds from Aberdeen and surrounding area but if we were to pick up at Carlisle for example we would offer a reduced rate.

City v Spurs (League) 22 January [3v2 win]

Spurs v City (League) – Sun 28 Aug 2011 [1-5 win]

Dzeko showed just why he has become first choice for Roberto Mancini’s new galacticos with the brilliant four-goal blast that devastated Tottenham in a remarkable White Hart Lane victory.

The Bosnia striker, who couldn’t buy a Premier League goal last season, snapped up a perfect hat-trick then added an injury-time stunner to emphasise his own potency and that of the buoyant Blues.

Samir Nasri conjured an impressive enough midfield debut on his instant return to north London, but his performance – and a good few others – was totally overshadowed by Dzeko’s irresistible display.

Superb performance from City, what a player Dzeko is, 4 special goals, I find it hard to choose between the backwards header and the amazing strike from 30 yards.

Gotta love the grin on Nasri’s face after Dzeko scores again.
