    I don't normally post in IWIW as I'm quite shy really, but I had to post this...

    So, I sat through the City V Barca game and thoroughly didn't enjoy it.

    1-0 was bad enough but I was still thinking 'OK, 10 men against Barca and only 1-0 aint too bad and we can maybe turn it around at the Nou Camp when we have a full squad again.'

    And then they get that late, late goal to make it 2-0.

    Maine Blue is one seriously depressed City fan.

    So, off I go, boot the laptop up, log into my emails and....

    Congratulations you are the winner of a pair of stand tickets for the Capital One Cup Final 2014 between Manchester City v Sunderland on Sunday 2nd March 2014 at 2pm.

    Congratulations - great prize..........(unless it's a repeat of last year's FA Cup Final !!!) - Forget last night's result, City will probably win the league this year IMO - and I'm a L'pool fan.

    Well done true blue.
    But i wouldnt worry about city, there isnt a single team in the prem
    who are any good this year talent (consistant talent) has left the prem?
    If you dont win the cup this year it may be time to change your support to an overseas team.
    I usually enter quite a few comps for footy tkts (any as im neutral)
    but due to the poor week by week performances i cant be bothered to go to any match even if it is free.
    Im just glad you got tkts again this year
    and hope you dont get beat again by a team who are probably only a quarter as good as your team, like wigan.
    Still comping, after 2 heart attacks 4th feb & 6th feb, and a stent put in.. 45 years old only
