It’s been a while, and I suppose we are all still recovering in some way from the amazing last day of the Premiership season, despite the start of the Euros coming round in what seemed like no time at all.
I am long enough in the tooth to remember Manchester City’s last top-level title in 1968. I was very young, but that amazing final day also stuck in my memory, as Sunderland won 2-1 at Old Trafford and the Blues won 4-3 at a place that was then called St. James' Park, Newcastle. Such days really stick in the mind, when The Lads made sure that the title did not go to the Reds. We did not have such media intensity in those days, but it was still memorable.
