From ONCE A BLUE ALWAYS A BLUE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF RICHARD EDGHILL By Richard Edghill and Dante Friend … I remember the actual game against Oldham, we lost 3-0 with about 50 Oldham fans and 3,000 City fans in a ramshackle old ground. The City fans were treating it like a stag do in Spain, they were really letting their hair down. People were having their own races round the athletics track while thye game was taking place. They were nicking the corner flags. They were showing what great fans they were, with their self deprecating humour… In those days the chant “We never win at home and we never win away”really meant something.
