Another midweek match for City tomorrow evening, as we welcome near-neighbours Bolton Wanderers to the City of Manchester Stadium.
Owen Coyle has already visited as Burnley manager earlier this season, but let's hope that his return as Bolton boss is less successful!
North-West derbies are always feisty affairs, and we wanted to celebrate that by getting songs all about this particular part of the UK. No other area really gets that many songs written about it, but there’s something about the north that makes people passionate. We got some cracking ideas as well, from contemporary Manchester bands such as The Courteeners to some rare Northern Soul and the classic folk song inspired by Salford, Dirty Old Town. However, there can only be one winner as they say on the quiz shows, and the songs chosen to be played are…
Station Approach by Elbow
Whippin’ Piccadilly by Gomez
Round Are Way by Oasis
Congratulations to Hasan Qureshi, who chose these three top tracks, and will get the chance to hear them blaring out before the game. Let’s hope they inspire the team towards three points!
The next game here at City will be this Saturday’s FA Cup match against Stoke City. For the Umbro Playlist, we’re using the word Stoke as inspiration – you can stoke a fire, for instance. So we want three songs featuring action words, whether it’s dance, fight, move, anything. Get your thinking caps on, and get your suggestions down for the chance to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the match…
