28/12 Man City 2nd Half

Manchester City 2 Grimsby Town 1
28 Dec 1999, Nationwide League Division 1

City kept us in the ground for 10-15 mins after the match, during which sections of the crowd were singing "Buckley out" (with which I agree), but I didn't join in as this result didn't warrant it.

For those that didn't go, our worst player was without doubt young Buckley, he was way out of his depth and position all the time. At one point he had the ball at his feet and didn't know what to do with it, no one challenged him so he walked round the ball full circle, decided he still couldn't touch the ball and walked round it again. He was in acres of space and just stood there doing nothing, so Man City walked towards him thinking he would run off with the ball or kick it or something, not our Adam, he stood still and let him take the ball away.Thankfully they never scored from that. This scene had to be seen to be believed, it was farcical, but it made us all laugh cos we couldn't believe it.
