After the snow froze the match the first time around, anticipation around the big match against our neighbours from across the city has grown massively.
Fortunately, it looks like we’ll finally get to see the game tomorrow – let’s hope that City can get the right result in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final before we travel over to Old Trafford.
When the match was postponed, the Umbro Playlist choices were also put on ice, until now. With a nod to City’s League Cup success in 1976, we asked you to pick three top songs from the 1970s to get everyone going before the match tomorrow, and once again you responded brilliantly.
There was a great range of rock classics, disco favourites and cheesy pop chosen, and there was also some great individual songs picked out – Sparks’ This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us a fantastic example. However, in terms of a complete trio of top songs, we decided that this selection from Ben Morris was the best:
Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen
Atomic by Blondie
Rock And Roll by Led Zeppelin
Three songs that are guaranteed to get the crowd warmed up at the City Of Manchester stadium tomorrow night! Congratulations to Ben, who wins a pair of tickets to the game, and the chance to sing along to his choices beforehand!
We’ve already announced details of the next Umbro Playlist, but if anyone hasn’t seen it yet, we want your suggestions for the game against Portsmouth at the end of the month. Portsmouth are a fair distance away – the longest in the division in fact – so the theme for the Playlist is songs about travelling or long distance. Get thinking to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets!
