MCFC Victory Parade


I have to be honest I'm not a massive football fan but Mrs RJR and our youngest, Ruth, both are BIG Manchester City fans. So if you know anything about the events of Sunday and the nail biting League Final you will know that after a full season of games it was all decided by the final goal in the 5th minute of stoppage time. It was a tense 95 minutes in Teal Towers, followed by a lot of screaming.

Mrs RJRs team had won the league... She has only waited ALL her life to see this happen.

Tonight we joined 100,000 people in the centre of Manchester to watch the victory parade. Ruth made a banner for her team favourite, Jo Hart the Goalkeeper.


You can image her face when he looked down from the open top bus, starred at her banner and then blew her a kiss !!!
 

We took loads of pictures, of thousands of happy people !!! So here is what we saw...

What a crowd. Looks like you had to just hold the camera up high and keep clicking in the hopes you would catch a good image.

AHHHH,there was quite the screaming at our house as well during that match. My husband grew up in England and so he and my son watched the game and wow, what a fantastic game! I loved it! (I couldn't not watch it with all the yelling going on!)
:) love the photo of your daughter and her beloved player blowing her a kiss...

I'm not into football, but it's nice when you support someone and you finally have the chance to see them up close, rather than always watching from a distance. It makes all the difference. Looks as if a great day was had by all.
