Thought I'd do this over here because it'd get lost over there.

Good grief!! That was my lad's first game too!!! ;-)

But wasn't it 2/0? Could have sworn Quinn scored too.

Although I may be having a senior moment.


I'm willing to be wrong, but I'm fairly certain it was 1-0, mac.

I remember White scored very early because we had only just sat down.

I know it's the same match that we are referring to because my Grandad had died the year before and Spurs won the FAC in 1991. Hence why I took son to a City match, as he had got a love of Spurs and it needed to be cured.


I must admit that the reason my dad chose that one to take me to was because I liked Lineker. IIRC, he was retiring that season, so dad thought he'd kill two birds with one stone.

Hi QR

Sorry it took a few days to reply.

Isn't that really weird? My lad was born in September 1982 and was fast developing a Spurs affiliation, simply because of that FAC win in 1991.

I had little money at that time (lone parent on a part time wage) and hadn't been to a City game in almost 10 years. Told him we had to "sort it " and I got him to that Spurs match. He has never looked back since. It was hearing the City fans singing at Maine Road as we walked up those narrow streets that did it.

Still think we won 2/0 though. Very Happy

Ain't it a coincidence though that your Dad did the same with you??

It seems a coincidence, but I imagine a lot of parents have cured their children's apathy for football or like of another team by taking them to City!
