CONDENSED READ - Norwich (h)

Sunday 19th May 2013
Manchester City 2 Norwich City 3
Rodwell (2) - Pilkington, Holt, Howson 


THE BEGINNING: Season 2012-2013 has caved in like an undercooked flan. Still it is our last supper, so we consume.

THE MIDDLE: How to make Johnny Howson look like Jairzinho. But, wait, here comes Micah to the rescue! To save the day for all of us! (large sausage shaped object flies headlong past yellow-shirted striker as if fired from a cannon). Oh....

Yaya grazes, Edin dozes, crowd fidgets, Norwich score. Welcome The Real Jack Rodwell.

THE END: The curtain falls. Brings railing down with it. Bye bye Edin, Kolo, Joleon, Micah, Scott, Aleks, Carlos, Costel, Brian? Ciao, Roberto, and thanks. One Chilean flag.

THE STAT: City score in 50th consecutive home game, the longest current run and 2nd longest in Premier League history. Norwich win for only the third time in history at City and for the first time at the Etihad. Previous wins 1964 and 1997, the year of Lee Bradbury.

THE QUOTE: "I've been blessed and been grateful for what football has given me. I was asked to take charge for two games and America, which has been tough with the boss going. The club make the decisions and you abide by it. I'm a big boy." - Brian Kidd
