    ......and the applause on the 7th minute, it just got me to thinking about City fans and indeed posters on here who have maybe just passed away and we have never known about it.

    I know if I went suddenly (yeah, you can stop crossing your fingers now, please) my missus would never think to come on here and tell anyone and wouldn't ever know how to get on here, or know my username and password.

    Wouldn't cross my daughter's mind either.

    Bet we've lost quite a few and have never known.

    Used to be a nice old man sit in front of me all by himself at the Ricoh. Always had a season ticket for years and years and then suddenly he never came again.

    Maybe he just gave up, but part of me wonders if he just died.

    Loads of people just go up by themselves.

    Sad to think some have just passed away and we have no idea about it.

    It is, there have been a couple.

    I think the guy who got hit by a car on Sky Blue Way was a member on here.

    my missus wouldn't think of it either, she'd be too busy cleaning the knife and burying me in the back garden.

    I think that is on my missus' mind too at the moment.

    Not sure what I've done wrong though. She just asked me the two things I liked the most about her and I simply said 'You always do the washing up and the house is always neat and tidy.'

    What did I do wrong?

    Surely your final act would be to put all your SBT enemies to rights?
