I wonder if i buy a city ticket for a home game whther id be able to get a ticket in their end for final 😁

Not condoning it all, but a lad I know is a Villa fan, but despite his best efforts, his sons 'support' Manchester City.  He took them to one home game last season and because of that, was able to get tickets for the three of them to go to th League a Cup final last season.

I would imagine the match ticket you bought would have had to have been played for it to count as booking history.

Just had a horrible thought...wasn’t Southampton away also our last league game before our mauling in the FA Cup Final against Arsenal?

Im sure that was the week the squad found out the news that Benteke was off. Our form just fell off a cliff.

Yep, we lost away at Southampton and home against Burnley just before the final - it became clear the Sherwood magic was starting to wear off at this point.

Two standout memories from the respective games were getting an earful from a group of lads hanging outside the maccies in Southampton town centre after the game, and being massively impressed with Tom Heaton for Burnley. Remember wishing we would sign him after that.
