Hey Sarah from Sydney where you watching the game, I will be in the casino if interested. I also am an exiled bantam and for once only would rather be back in Bradford and Wembley than stuck by a beach.
City is the only thing I miss so wish I could afford to fly back.
Enjoy the day everyone and do Bradford proud.
city till I die chris

ARE YOUR (MAIN) EMPLOYERS --WELSH and FROM THE SWANSEA AREA ??.( Or 'WEEDS' Supporters etc.)
*
THAT IS DISGRACEFUL. It smacks of malicious bias, and a very nasty threat. If it could be deemed contrary to your employment, contracted terms and conditions.
*
I feel under Employment Law--you could have a case against your " 'Bradford' Based Contractors. If you can seek legal advice immediately. Talk to Citizens Advice . Google Solicitors who operate the Legal Aid Schemes. If you can get advice now, you will be possibly be able to counter your employers threat.
*
Last resort --go sick now. Get a Dr.'s
note for the next week to cover Sunday.
Under Current Employment Law- I feel sure your Employer is in serious trouble, for issuing this threat to your employment.

Short notice I know but my son has won VIP tickets to the bobby Moore lounge on Sunday and is now going in there with his brother. Does anyone know any genuine city fans who may want to buy two tickets at face value. 72 quid each block 128. Just a thought will contact club in morning to see if they can give them a new home. I know I could sell Sunday but don't want a tout to benefit selling on at a profit

Please let's ensure a minutes applause at the 56 minute mark. I have a tear in my eye just thinking about it. This final is as much for the 56 people that lost their lives as it is for the fans going on Sunday.

am I going to be the only one wearing a city scarf going north on the M1 on Sunday?! Me and my girlfriend couldn't get tickets so we're driving from London to Bradford to take my Dad out to watch it. Anyone know which pubs / bars will be good for atmosphere and space (getting a seat - my Dad's 83 and his brother was on City's books in the late 40s).
City Vaults in town or or Old Tramshed at Saltaire are first thoughts.
Come on lads. Step up to that plate, embrace it and enjoy it. What a glorious day it's going to be.
