    I’ve said this before, and (of course) I’ll say it again. It’s a tough call for me as a Man City supporter to decide what I prefer. 2nd Division knockabouts with Wycombe Wanderers and, funnily enough, York City, or getting thrashed by Chelsea on my birthday.

    Of course, in the clear light of day, we all want our sides to do as well as they possibly can. In City’s case I guess that mean qualifying for the chumpions league by finishing 8th in 2014. Or less cynically, a cup final at some point.

    I’d never deliberately wish my team to lose so I could enjoy a cheaper pie. That said, I’ve never had as much fun at Highbuty as I had at Chester in the first round proper of the FA cup.

    Adopt a club is my option this season, and my choice is clear. Altricham all the way. I once went with a friend to take photos of a match for a college project at Altrincham, and the entire crowd sang “You killed our princess” at him. Priceless.

    Why can’t you edit these for post-pub typos?

    Your comment about getting through a season with 19 players made me laugh; we Torquay fans have to put up with a squad that size most seasons. To be told that it’s too small to stay in the conference will stoke the debate nicely!

    Great blog, by the way – thanks for all the hard work.
