One thought on “Preston North End v Manchester City 1998/99

  1. Great atmosphere : wow 21,000 turned up, and I was one of the 1000’s of ticketless City fans who bought one outside. Credit to Preston Fans as well on turning up for a 3rd Division game that stood out that Season – exciting affair both ON & OFF pitch, game could’ve gone either way.

    Don’t know where my boys City would be now had we not scraped thru that Playoff Final (Penalty Shootout) v Gillingham in May 1999 – thru the ‘skin of our teeth’ !

    Great Days in the 3rd Division ( now ‘League 1’ ). Met some fantastic people at the ‘real’ Clubs !
