Big match this Sunday (kind of!)! The proud in battle SF Manchester City Blue supporters club will be in full force at the bright and early time of 5:15 A.M. for the Manchester Derby which commences PROMPTLY at 5:30 A.M. SHARP. We will be flying high from the top of the table as we meet the Rags at the hellhole that is Old Trafford.
This is an opportunity to come meet fellow City supporters, as well as a chance to see those "only come to church on Christmas and Easter" types! Haha. All in a good day out.
Some fun facts about this, the greatest of all matches Manchester (and Salford):
-City holds the highest record attendance for an English football match with 84,569. United holds the second highest, ironically at Maine Road due to Old Trafford suffering some damage from WWII (if only they'd finished the job!).
-City holds the largest victory, with a 6-1 win in January 1926.
-City's Joe Hayes and Francis Lee hold the top goalscoring honors of the derby, with 10 a piece.
Some come on down, have a pint or three, and come support the Blues in style!
