I'm a dreamer - always have been, always will. My wife says my glass is always half full. I'd say my glass is spilling over the sides most days! So when I read the comments of City's new Executive Chairman Garry Cook, a few weeks ago, outlining his ambitious plans for the future I didn't ridicule them like some in the tabloids did.
As Kevin Keegan once said, if you aim for the moon, you might hit the stars (though I think he meant it the other way around!). I love Kevin, he has an enthusiasm that is infectious, but I digress.
City's new owners couldn't have announced their arrival in more dramatic fashion, bids for some of the worlds best players and the signing of a brilliant Brazilian - Robinho.
So what happens now? When I was full of adrenalin on "the day", I was dreaming up my fantasy team - it included Lionel Messi, Fernando Torres and Kaka, and they were just the subs! But now the dust has settled I wonder if that's realistic, despite the "limitless" funds available to Mark Hughes.
I'm certainly hopeful that some of those great players will be appearing at Middle-Eastlands in the future, but I don't want my club to lose it's identity.
As an impressionable boy, and being from a family that didn't have much passion for sport, I latched on to City because their fans had a sense of humour, loved the sport (not just one team) and were local and proud of it. Even then (the late 60's) I perceived United as arrogant and distant.
City's new owners have, sensibly, calmed down their public utterances since the first few days and are now taking the more gracious approach of quietly planning and working behind the scenes. World domination I can handle, but let's do it the City way, with good grace and good humour.
Just like all City fans I've dreamed of the kind of opportunity that has now come to the club, but when I've been talking at supporters club branches in the past I've always qualified the discussion by warning "Be careful what you wish for" - I don't want the new City to change into the kind of football club I wouldn't have supported as a boy.
Incidentally, I'll be doing another blog next week, from my trip to Cyprus to commentate on the UEFA Cup game against Amonia Nicosia.
