City 3 Southampton 2
What a great game. At last some excitement on the pitch, noise from the crowd and passion from everyone.
Ian Hume hit two fantastic goals from outside the box, one with his left foot in the first half to give city the lead and the second with his right to restore the lead in the second.
Typically as soon as we had scored we tried hard to let Southampton equalise and whilst they squandered two clear chances just before half time, they scored with the most difficult of the three chances (still a gift though) in added time to go in to the break at 1 – 1.
We had several opportunities to add to the first half tally, with Elvis (he looks lively but is he a striker?) scorning one, Nissa (I am only on first name terms with him because I can't spell his surname, who looks comfortable at left back) missing one and various other skirmishes around their goal.
Hume's second (I really do want to have his babies when he plays like this) put us back in front from another example of more space than he has had all season….
