Gone in 69 minutes – back in 331 seconds!

The time stamp of 93:20 is etched indelibly into Manchester City’s history – seared into the psyche of every City fan forever and a day – never to be erased. Those four digits personify the most momentous single event of the Premier League era, but fast forward ten years from ‘Aguerooo’ and there’s another batch of numbers which will resonate long in the memory.

The Reds came to party, arrogance overflowing spitting vitriol, venom and spite, vowing to silence the upstart noisy neighbours and hail a ‘Glory Glory Man United’ celebratory night. Fergie spewed aspirations of humiliating the reigning champions with a record Premier League points winning margin, as the Old Trafford banners proclaimed ‘Aguerooo-noooo…’ – the Manure faithful making light of that painful, fateful day last May. It turned out to be a […]
