More about me:

quote

From the south - but I support City. I think there were so many Man U supporters around when I started following the game I presumed Manchester was just the other side of Watford.
I go to see City about 15 times a season and have been hooked on the Blues since I was 6 years old.
Love; my wife, my son (born 5/1/09) City and Pink Floyd.

Hate; United and Simply Red
