Manchester City fan and rock n roll star Noel Gallagher: "We'll never get used to this, we'll never get blasé about it. We never thought we'd see the day when we'd be competing for a trophy, let alone all the trophies. And to cap it all of this year, United are rubbish."

I would agree, however, using logic and reason to predict what FIFA (or the IOC) will do is mistake.
The Etihad is newer and has better luxary boxes and cororate hospitality space. I could see that being preffered over history, fans, and all that stuff that should mattter but often doesn't. ...

I moved to Manchester after college in Sep '98. United fans loved to tell me how great their team was, but never once invited me to OT. City had been relegated twice and tickets were much easier to come by. My first match was City - Chesterfield at Maine Rd.

It wouldn't be fair to those that picked the first two weeks since someone eliminated in week 1 might not have even attempted to pick in week 2. [/quote]...
