Miles is a HUGE Manchester City fan and have been since 1971 when by dad took me to watch Manchester City v Norwich at Maine Road. The best game I have been to was the Agueeeerrrooo moment when City won the title v QPR with 2 injury time goals. I still watch reruns and especially enjoy the clips which also show United hearing that City had scored!
