My Dad has been a big Manchester City Football Club fan from being a small boy when he used to go to their old stadium “Maine Road” with his Grandfather. So the whole family follow “The Boys in Blue”.
On the ‘Second Day of Christmas’ my Mum’s gift to me and the boys was a meal at the ground ‘The Etihad Stadium’ in Manchester and seats to watch Manchester City F.C. play Liverpool FC.
It was a very important match because Liverpool were top of the English Premier League and we needed to beat them to stay in contention. Granddad, Dad, Tom, Matt and I were in good voice, although Dad told me at half time to take it easy and not to get too excited as we were 2-1 up by then. We went back inside and ate Mince Pies and had a cup of tea.
It was a fabulous match, we were on the edge of our seats. The final result 2-1 to Manchester City so I thought I’d tape my second day of Christmas from the ground, I had to wait for the stadium to partially empty so that you could hear me.
Hope you enjoy the video. I did think about changing the lyrics to: On the Second Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, two Man. City goals and a partridge in a pear tree but I’m not one to gloat “mwha ha ha”.
