“Mancini are you listening,
We’re gonna keep our ticker ticking,
We’ll be on Wembley Way,
34 years to the day,
While your choking on your scarf back home”

Stretford End Flags have asked Roberto Mancini to attend the official banner changing at Old Trafford, whereby the ticker will move on to 34 years, after the City boss earlier promised to take the banner down. As yet, they have heard no response from City.

Sunday will mark 34 years to the day since City last won a trophy.
