TRUE BLUE STORIESWHY BLUE
I became a blue through normal circumstances ie.My Dad. He was the same and my Grandad became a blue because, living in Moss Side when he was a lad, he was able to make a bit of money from collecting returnable bottles from inside the Kippax and get the refund from the shop. I am now working in Cairo so after 21 years of regular watching of the blues I am now limited to the odd match at Christmas when I am back home.
My dad took me to my first game when I was 5 and I'm afraid all I remember about it is going into the ground through the junior turnstiles in the Kippax, which I continued to do until I was 17! My oldest memories of a game is playing Juventus in the UEFA cup. I'm now unable to visit Maine Road for every game as I am working abroad but I look forward to seeing Big Niall back at The Academy next season.
