    Thanks for that history lesson Ian. I was just 15 on that fateful day in 1968, living in NW London, and going to school in Harrow with no specific team allegiance in the 1st division at all. During the week before these final games were to be played a lot of mya mates who supported MU were boasting about how they were going to win again, and me being an awkward b*****r said no, City would beat Newcastle and win the league, just to wind them up really!

    Well you can imagine my pleasure when my forecasts came true and I was King of the School Playground on the Monday! It was the beginning of a life-long addiction! Of course, when they won three more trophies in the next two years, I thought I was in heaven! I never though that I would have to wait until nearly my 60th BD for another League Title – but I wouldn’t have changed it for the world!
