Thread: Little did I know 59 years ago, aged 9. Tomorrow will be a big day!

  1. #1

    Little did I know 59 years ago, aged 9. Tomorrow will be a big day!

    My dad took me to my first City match. I stood on the wall at the back of the Bob Bank, Grange end.
    And so the love affair began. A roller coaster 59 years with more downs than ups and here we are again.

    My sons became City fans and then this season my two grandsons, 11 & 8, who wear their blue shirts with pride at every opportunity in an area where the blue is Chelsea, got their season tickets.

    Tomorrow they will be among our Mascots.

    Hope you all have a great day, perhaps your Grandkids can claim some credit if Big Mick gets the Spanish archer.

    City didn't play on Saturday 20th Oct 1962 - nearest was the following Saturday, at home to Sc*nthorpe United. City won 4-0 ! My 1st season also..

    Brilliant. Hope they have a great day.
    Wouldn't it be fantastic to think that, in 59 years time, they could be posting on a forum about how their grandad took them to a game at which they were mascots and ran out onto the pitch with team.

    Fantastic.
    One disappointment for me, living some distance away from CCS, with a family who have no interest in football, that I may never take my 7 year old grandson to CCS.

    Staggering isn’t it.
    Listening out for the results on Sport Report when City were away.
    Getting to the Newsagent to be there as the Pink un arrived.
    Then following the scores on Teletext
    ……

    Fantastic. Hope you have a great day.

    Nothing better than sharing the love of the club with your family and friends. Even if it seems there are more downs than ups

    My kids are all 4th generation Bluebirds. Next spring Iím hoping to take my brotherís grandson - who will be 5th generation.
