    Decent, factually accurate article about LTFC v Man City

    Yes, I know it's "only" the Guardian, but that newspaper (as opposed to several I could mention) does at least have good journalists.
    Having witnessed some of the games mentioned (League Cup finals: 1988 v Arsenal, 1989 v Nottingham Forest) plus several other encounters between the Town and the City (some on TV, if not in the flesh), it was nice to read a straight summary of past confrontations, some details of which (City are winless at KR since 1959) may surprise all those Johnny-come-latelies.

      City did win here in the League Cup in 1980 http://www.hattersheritage.co.uk/luton-town-vs-manchester-city-19801981

      Herbie Smith, whatever happened to him?

      Unless I'm completely wrong and forgetful but didn't we lose out only three times in the play offs against York (2010), Wimbledon (2011) and York again (2012) before succumbing to 7th place in 2013? I'm sure that's how I remember it yet I've also forgotten just how many abysmal players we had as well (eg. Jamie Hand).

          Na. It states that 'the Hatters were a non-league team, stuck in a rut of four straight Conference playoff failures'. Lazy journalism again.

            You say lazy journalism but I challenge you to find any other article this weekend that reflects on the history of the fixture !

              It isn't a bad article I grant you that but just get some basic facts right. And if it really reflected on the history of the fixture then why no mention of the infamous FA Cup replay from 1961?

          Of all the bigger clubs. I have more time for city and their legacy fans than all the rest. Obviously they have glory hunters climbing on board. But the older fans have been through a lot over the last few years before the money rolled in.
