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 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
