After beating the champions and facing off against an Italian giant already this week, we’re back at Eastlands on Sunday for another massive game, as Newcastle United are in town to take on City.
It’s also time for another Umbro Playlist to mark the occasion, and we took inspiration from our opponents famous kits for our latest musical competition. We asked you to submit three songs with either black or white in the title, and we got plenty of clever suggestions. Plenty of you were digging through lyrics to find colourful references, so thanks for all your efforts. There had to be a winner though, so congratulations to Gregor Hackett, who was chosen thanks to the trio of tunes he picked out. Here’s his tunes:
White Flag by Gorillaz
Black & Gold by Sam Sparrow
Black & White Town by Doves
Three great choices, we’re sure you’ll agree! Congratulations again to Gregor, who not only wins a pair of tickets to the game on Sunday but will also get to hear his tunes being played at the stadium.
There’s another great game just around the corner for City, with Arsenal the next visitors to Eastlands for a league fixture. We’ve got a tough theme for this one – we’ve taken inspiration from Arsenal’s long-standing manager, and we’re asking for songs with a French theme. They could be acts from across the Channel, or just songs that mention le Francais, but they have to be a little bit French to be in with a chance of winning. So get thinking, and get submitting your choice of tunes on the City Facebook page!
