For all those who got left behind

For all those who got left behind

I have had 48 hours to get used to it, it`s only a cup final appearance but it feels so much more.
I loved Saturday all day, the night stretched on and on and it was glorious, the company I was in was brilliant but at times like those I remember those people that I used to go the games with that I don`t see anymore.

I would have liked to have been with my mum, to give her a big kiss at the final whistle and reassure her during the 5 minutes injury time.

So this isn`t a big article but just so you know, if you are reading this, I thought of my Mum, Christian, Sid, Andy Trowy, Markie Boy, Matt, Jock, Steve Bradley, Richard from Southport, Gorf, Christine, Peter and John Pipka(RIP).

I enjoyed seeing so many City fans so deliriously happy that 2 grown men burst into tears at full time.

I would have liked to see if my old local pub emptied as quickly as their end of Wembley.

I would have liked to reassure my girlfriend that I`d take a cut nose to win the game and I was fine.

I liked having the chance NOT to say anything to them.

I never sent one gloating text or phone call to any of my red mates, I took the time to celebrate not goad.

Well timed silence is more eloquent than words.

I would like to thank Redmond6 for great a sentiment. Its nice to gloat to any win over the reds but this was about our re-emergence from the oblivion of thirty five years of hurt and not about getting one over on the old enemy. This was for all us long suffering fans and the new order at the club and the ones with whom weve shared difficult days both at COM but Maine Rd and who are no longer with us. The futures bright the future in Manchester and its BLUE
