    Just a frivolous thought...

    1956 - Memorable Cup Final (Trautmann breaks his neck)
    1981 - Memorable Cup Final (Hutchinson scores for both sides)
    2006 - ?

    Another 25 years. Are we due at least a place in the final?
    Of course, this may be irrelevant in a few hours.

    Nice thought while it lasted, here's another frivolous thought......

    1996 - City relegated (from Premiership)
    2001 - City relegated (from Premiership)
    2006 - City.......:eek:

    Know this 5 year (premiership relegation) jinx will not happen, but it was a nice thought while it lasted :D

    would have been funny that Woodywizz except you forget to mention ....

    1998 - City relegated (to Divison 2 - League One as is now :eek: )

    So, not so much a five year jinx, eh? :(

    I have amended the post accordingly Abbeygoo, thankyou for pointing out the 98 relegation. If things go to plan then City would be relegated to the Championship in 2006; then the 10 year jinx will kick in and you will be relegated to Div One in 2008.:smashin:

    Thank you Woodywizz. If you are going to have a laugh at City's expense then please have accurate slagging off stats to hand. :cool:

    yes, sorry to say, Woodywizz is a Man United fan and he is from Manchester. To balance that unusual situation out perfectly, he never goes to watch them! Typical ! :smashin:

    I cannot bring myself to go and watch Utd as I was born in Stepping Hill hospital (Stockport), therefore my birthright allegiance obviously lies with City...sorry:cool:

    Woodywizz is telling porky pies - he was not born in Stepping Hill, he is making a local joke that some United fans think all City fans come from Stockport. A bizarre and misguided attempt to detract from the fact that United's fans come from all over the world and continually have the p**s taken out of them for it. It remains, Woody is from Manchester (albeit the poorer end), supports United and posts almost daily on this forum about his love for the Red Devils. And he doesn't go to watch them. Ever.

    'Nuff said. :smashin:

    Abbeygoo is correct in the fact that I was making a joke about City fans; however he is incorrect in that I was born in Stepping Hill.....sorry mate, I will bring my passport along when we are next out and you will plainly see - place of birth: Stockport.
