Hey Neil.

I'm 24 so obviously never got to watch you in person, but my Dad, ever since I a little boy watching the likes of Uwe Rosler and Gio Kinkladze always told me you and Colin Bell were the greatest players ever to put a City shirt on, which after the many stories I have heard about your playing career I can believe.

So from 1 blue to another I hope god keeps you here long enough to watch the Citizens lift a Premier and Champions league trophy. 


I'm only 16 so didn't see his days as a player, but I do know how important he is to us. The game at Leicester was fantastic support to Neil, it just looked red and back all over the away section. The guys who made the banner for that Leicester game are very good lads also doing 'The Poznan' for Neil was great and then singing "There's only one Neil Young" brought a tear to my eye.


Keep your spirits up Nelly! Thanks for the brilliant memories you had the sweetest left peg!

Take care

Soo Smith and family xx

Dear Neil,

You taught both my kids, Jimbo and Amy at Pownall Green school. You also signed my number 10 shirt! We will never forget the great kindness, thoughtfulness and patience that you showed. 

You taught my kids valuable lessons for life.

Let's hope you can carry on doing that for kids everywhere.

Much love and kind thoughts

Dear Mr Young:

I'm only a 19 Years-Old Fan from Spain, but I've seen so many goals and so many actions of you during your career at Man City. I should just say a big THANK YOU for those great moments who gave us during the late 60s. I'll always remember that goal against Leicester in FA Cup Final, and the way you played during those years. Neil, you were the greatest and from all the supporters of Manchester City Football Club from Spain and from the whole World, we want to say: Get Well Soon Neil.

Come On You Blues.

Best Regards

David Poza

This small paragraph is to wish you all the very best in this terribly testing time. Sincere thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery and also massive support for those close to you.

Get well soon Neil.

Tina Whitehead

Hurry up and get well soon please.

Have been a MCFC for the last 43 years and my happiest moments at Maine Road were when you were part of the magnificent team we had then.

Dont think MCFC will ever have that same atmosphere again. Happy, special days.

Best wishes and much love
