blue really is a good colour …

Decent enough night at the Etihad last night as Manchester City played in the first leg of the  Champions League Semi Final. It was the the first time they have ever made it this far and ten times winners, Real Madrid made for formidable opponents.

The game was a tight cagey sort of affair with honors even at the end – crucially City didn’t  concede an away goal and so head off to Spain next week with a huge but not impossible task in the mighty Bernabeu stadium on Wednesday evening

Not for the first time, the Etihad looked fabulous again last night and there is no doubt that blue looks good in Manchester.
