One of the reasons I woke at 5.30 a.m. this morning was this game. Funny. 53 years old. All the wisdom accrued but still I get excited over a football match.
I know it means nothing in the scheme of things but this is special. Entertainment: yes. Stress-relief: yes (I can shout for 90 minutes). But sometimes football transcends the human condition.
There are times when everything focuses on one man and a ball and what he can do. This is one of those times.
Whatever happens, and being a City fan prepares you for disappointment, this has been a great and memorable season. On with the motley!
