An enforced visit up north this week meant I missed out on Bryan Gunn's first official match as manager but it did at least make me appreciate our fine City even more, if that's possible.

Ok maybe I caught Leeds on a bad day, heavy traffic, heavy rain, every light on red and an unfathomable matrix of one way systems is enough to make anyone pine for home, oh and it was a match night at Elland Road too.

I really wanted to be at the welcome party for Gunny at Carrow Road and couldn't face Leeds against Southend so instead went to see the latest Tom Cruise movie in a half empty and musty cinema where he played a one-armed German soldier planning to kill Hitler (no really).

My friends in Norwich had promised regular updates from the action and although I obviously wanted City to win, I hoped I wasn't going to miss anything too spectacular so the text that read “Two up, Hoolahan from half way” was greeted with mixed emotions but at least I could relax and wondered how many City would score against the hapless Southampton.

I left it half an hour before checking again “two all” was the shock news that greeted me “What! Are you sure, surely not?” for the rest of the film I wasn't' bothered whether Hitler was killed or not, in fact he obviously wasn't going to die as far as I remembered he killed himself in a Berlin bunker a year after this movie was set.

All I wanted was another text with “Yes! 3-2 Russell in the 94th minute!” but instead the long awaited text didn't come from Carrow Road but from a celebrating Charlton fan at the Valley “I'm so happy we are staying up we are staying up” Well I guess we will have to wait and see on that one, but one thing is for sure, this relegation battle is going to be more of an epic than any Hollywood producer could ever dream up.

Just one more thing that I might pass onto the Club from my cinema experience that might help wipe out some of the debt - stop selling pies and start selling popcorn, it costs virtually nothing to produce and costs up to �4 a carton!
