King of the Kippax - Thu Sep 1 1:49 PM
The new blog is finished and I hope Dave doesn't mind me coming on to let everyone know. I have had to change the name as there were rather too many I love man city named sites. If you search Google for the new name "our boys in blue blog" it is the first or second on the list. My...

My daughter has finished helping me create a new blog. Thanks very much for all your time Andrea, you have repaid a small amount of the love and affection I have showered on you for the last 22 years. It is available to view you can find it by searching google by entering ilovemcfc blog. It wi...

Arguably the best performance under Pep to date. Had we taken the chances we had, their goal would have been irrelevant. I can't say that I can see what Caballero brings to the table that Hart doesn't and I think Hart would have got much closer to the cross that led to their goal, at least punc...

A much better performance particularly the first half where we dominated. Had the referee not decided to give them a joke penalty (to make up for the one he missed in the first half?) it may not have been so nerve racking in the second half. Their goal coming so quickly galvanised them, but fair...

Sunday Catching up, it was a 1-0 loss in Munich. Young team, pressed well, but Willy made 3 great saves to keep it at 0-0. Not much penetration from the Blues. Senior players came on in the second half which we dominated, but went behind to a fluke deflected goal. Season card pack arrived on Frid...

Saturday Euros are over and Portugal, who finished 3 rd in their group won it. Fergie, you just can’t get rid of him, was on hand to congratulate Ronaldo and Nani, wonder what he said to Evra and Martial? Last week the manumirror had united’s £100M bid for Pogba as a statement of intent. Surely i...

Saturday Just a little catch up. We had a few days down in S Wales and enjoyed watching Wales beat Belgium, but disappointing for Kevin. Ramsay was a big loss for them against Portugal and they finally succumbed. On reflection I think that the MP who reckons that England should have our own anthe...

Monday Got a bit of catching up to do. England beat Wales. Early chance for Raheem, too early would’ve been the verdict on any other player. Dreadful foul by Rooney for the free kick, not mentioned. Joe beaten yet again down to his left. How many times have we seen that? Went to see Graham Nash’s...

Tuesday What’s been going on? Attended the Former Players ‘do, ’ organised to recognise Denis Law and Franny Lee being honoured with CBE ‘s and Steph Haughton's MBE which followed Alex Williams MBE. Fred said that Steph couldn't attend as she had to stay at home to do the ironing. C'mon guys, it...

I'm getting excited now, as it's nearly time for AC/DC at The Etihad. I'll be parking up at Funboy's flat opposite the East stand, I knew he'd come in handy one day. Like I've said I hope Axl Rose is on time and I don't mind if he does a couple of G and R numbers - I've just come...
King of the Kippax - Thu Jun 2 1:03 PM
England beat Australia at The SOL. Raheem laid on two then was booed off. It’s all been, Mourinho this week, apart from Rooney and Rashford, plus even the ads have got Cantona doing em, though I have to admit that I quite like em. Got my letter printed in the MEN re Mourinho falling into the lege...

Friday Brian Reade in the Lpool/manumirror reckons that Pep only came to City for the Sheikh’s petro dollars. Couldn’t have had anything to do with it being too easy in Germany to win things with Bayern creaming off all the best players plus there was the pull of his buddies Soriano and Begristai...

King of the Kippax - Mon May 23 2:01 PM
Monday I see de Gea’s bellyflop won save of the season. Fix. Joe’s at West Ham was miles better. At least he didn’t get the Golden glove thanks to Bournemouth’s late goal. The rag farce continued at the swamp further to the bomb scare. Utter bollocks. Ground half full, 74, 000 posted. On the Tues...

STEVE PARISH’S LETTER RECENTLY PRINTED IN WHEN SATURDAY COMES Most fans think referees are biased against their team. Some think they don’t get a fair deal from TV coverage, but it’s rare for that bias to be openly admitted. When BT Sport covered Manchester City’s Champions League qua...
King of the Kippax - Thu May 19 12:23 AM
Didn't watch it - was there amention of City beating Sevilla twice??? Dave
King of the Kippax - Wed May 18 3:31 PM
No mention anywhere yet of City beating Sevilla 2-1 home and 3-1 away. Obviously saving it for the TV coverage later today. Dave

Monday Swansea and after a few days with youngest daughter’s family in Newport parked up in Pizza Hut, had a snack and strolled to the ground, meeting up with the rest of the KK team. As for the game the least said the better, it just summed up our season. We’ll fight to the end? In our last six...
King of the Kippax - Sat May 14 3:01 PM
Lovely here in S. Wales. Well done West Ham on Tuesday, but not their fans pre-match, though understandable? That leaves us with just a point needed at Swansea, who’ve had a good end to the season, and can afford to rest a few players for the Euros. Let’s hope we take advantage, are not in Euro m...
King of the Kippax - Mon May 9 11:34 PM
Monday Saturday night we met up in a Manchester hotel with City old boy Bill Leivers and his son Glen who’d come up from Truro for the game against Arsenal. We had an enjoyable evening chewing the fat on all things City, old and new. Sunday dawned bright and breezy, and for a change it was pretty...
King of the Kippax - Fri May 6 10:54 PM
Friday night Well if ever we need a result after two dismal performances at Saints and Madrid it’s Sunday. By then the rags could be just a point behind us, so there can be no slip ups. Here’s the it’s a fix extract from Kk233…. 37) SUNDAY MAY 8 TH ARSENAL HOME KO 4PM No History – Ever present in...
King of the Kippax - Fri May 6 4:23 PM
Friday Pep’s Bayern Munich went out to Atletico Madrid, and just like Martinez in the FA Cup semi he was let down by a missed penalty. Can you blame the manager for that? Wednesday night and all we needed was one little goal. Epic failure, and we gave the media all the ammunition they were despe...
King of the Kippax - Tue May 3 11:33 PM
36A) WEDNESDAY MAY 4TH CHIMPS LEAGUE S/F SECOND LEG REAL MADRID AWAY KO 7.45PM Tonight it was Bayern 2 Atletico 1, so if we win through tomorrow night, we’ll face Atletico in the San Siro. Sad for Pep. Obviously we know all about the Santiego Bernabeu Stadium from our previous visit, and we know...

PS -Forgot to mention that Gary Lineker was spotted going into the toilets at Cherwell Valley services on the way home, not by me, but would have shouted “you looking for a P Gary” if I’d seen him! Dave
King of the Kippax - Mon May 2 7:39 PM
Monday Saints away and a reasonable time to set off in the Tom-mobile for the 4.30pm kick off. A34 closed so we had a pleasant diversion through the dreaming spires of Oxford. Seemed strange to reflect then on the time we won here 4-2 and in the park behind the away end the police lined up in the...
King of the Kippax - Sat Apr 30 8:05 PM
Saturday, and a win over Norwich by Arsenal puts them a place above us. Silly that the game is on Sunday last thing and you can’t blame Pellers for picking a changed team, which he surely will. But we do need a win and confidence booster before Wednesday…… 36) SUNDAY MAY 1 st SAINTS AWAY KO 4.30...
King of the Kippax - Fri Apr 29 3:10 PM
Friday It was the build up to the Chimps league semi-final, and City cocked up the ticket sales. On the night there was a lot of anticipation, and it was good to hear that the show pony wasn’t fit. Some razamatazz before the kick off, and yes, I did wave the flag! Bet Ged didn’t! And I did boo th...
King of the Kippax - Tue Apr 26 2:04 PM
Tonight’s the night, with the visit of Real Madrid, who won 3-2 at Rayo (where’s that?) at the weekend and moved to within a point of Atletico and Barca. We won 4-0 by the way v Stoke! Sky have delighted in showing Bale’s goals against us, of course, and Vinny's given a rousing clarion call to we...
King of the Kippax - Tue Apr 26 12:37 AM
Monday Stoke on Saturday at daft o clock. Watched the youth team on the box on the Friday night. It looked like men v boys to start with but we showed character to get back into the game. Went a goal behind but equalised and all to play for on Wednesday night. Miraculously it stayed fine on the d...
King of the Kippax - Fri Apr 22 6:57 PM
Game brought forward from Sunday because of the Real Madrid match. Stoke’s had a couple of 4 goal batterings at Liverpool and Spurs at home, so could be fragile mentally, and I believe Shaqiri’s not playing which is good for us. Here we go with the IAF extract from Kk233…… 35) SATURDAY APRIL 23r...
