Memories of Seeing a Match At Maine Road, Manchester City’s Old Ground

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

A typical Saturday at Manchester City's former ground Maine Road — dismal, bleak, depressing; much like the football displayed by the side who called it their stomping ground. The home of Manchester City from 1923 to 2003 was always a place where you could expect an easy day out if you were the away side.

Manchester United have had larger attendances every single season since the war, regardless of which team was more successful. United have fans from all around the country and the world, which somehow has lead people outside of Manchester to believe the myth that City fans put about, that Manchester is blue.

Manchester United star Danny Welbeck reveals he ‘never looked back’ after Manchester City released him aged eight

Danny Welbeck has revealed he could have been the local hero of the blue half of Manchester if City hadn't released him when he was eight-years-old. The young striker was on City's books as a six-year-old, but was shown the door from Maine Road in December 1998. That looks like a bad move now, but [.

Well, none of us expected that and, such was the imperiousness of Manchester City's performance at Old Trafford this afternoon the thesauruses have already been wrung dry as the internet groans under the weight of the superlatives being thrown at Roberto Mancini's team. This was a performance for the ages, one which will come to eclipse some of the club's most famous performances against Manchester United, such as their 5-1 win at Maine Road in 1989 or their win at Old Trafford on the last day of the 1973/74 season.

Manchester City and Me

I can't really sum it up any better than my dad did, just the other day he said he'd love to follow City again, "but that's not Manchester City". It's exactly how I feel, that the club I grew up supporting just isn't really there any more, and something else stands in their place. There's an odd disconnection in attempting to write about the two things together, but I'll do my best.

A year after beating out Manchester United to secure their third League Cup, Liverpool would head back to Wembley for the fourth time in a row with the chance to further add to their trophy case, and this time they would face off against Everton for the honours. It was the first time the two sides met at Wembley, and when all was said and done it marked both the first trophy of manager Joe Fagan's brief time in charge and the end of Liverpool's run of dominance in the league cup.

There can be few more thrilling experiences than watching Manchester United come from being two goals behind at Wembley to beat 'noisy neighbours' Manchester City 3-2 with a last minute winner in the Community Shield. However much City may now try to dismiss the occasion as simply a 'pre-season warm up' it's still a terrific feeling to see so many United youngsters rising to the occasion in classic Busby Babes' style, all those players like Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck, each giving hope that another generation of 'kids' is coming through at Old Trafford.
