As usual, our social networks have been buzzing with activity ahead of a season-defining few days, starting with tomorrow’s visit of Aston Villa to CoMS.
Earlier in the week, we were blown away by the wonderfully dramatic photograph (above) of the City of Manchester Stadium taken, and submitted to the MCFC Flickr group by ‘Atavachron’. Great job!
Over on the City fan page on Facebook, we were delighted with the response to our shout-outs to vote for mcfc.co.uk in the Webbys. Thank you to everyone who voted (many of you did so more than once!) and we’ll let you know how we got on as soon as we find out.
Speaking of Facebook, submissions are now open for the Umbro Playlist for the final home game of the season next Wednesday against Spurs. If you fancy winning a pair of tickets to this potential fourth place-decider, post your tunes here.
The club has also launched a new presence on up and coming social network, Foursquare. Foursquare is a location based social network site and software where users are able to ‘check in’ to locations and see where their friends are. Add MCFC as a friend and we’ll hopefully be seeing you checking in at the City of Manchester Stadium soon!
This afternoon, following the mcfc.co.uk new story in which Pablo Zabaleta issued a ‘battle cry’, the City web team were discussing football clichés and decided to open it up to our friends on Twitter. Here are some of our favourite suggestions:
‘For a big lad, he’s good with his feet’
‘He couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo’
...classic Chris Kamara quoted by @griffbo123
‘He wears his heart on his sleeve’
The term ‘rearguard’ being used to describe a defence from @McHughvius who also poses this question for all football commentators out there:
Why is a left foot either ‘trusty’ or ‘educated’, but a right foot is neither?
Also, if anyone like iGoogle out there, @ruanholder has created this great City theme for you to add to your homepages.
