On January 6th, Rob Tanner's "City News" on page 47 featured Manchester born Richie Wellens' thoughts on the forthcoming F.A.Cup 3rd Round tie against Manchester City.
" "I am a Red, and my dad is a Red," said Wellens, who was born in the Moston area of Manchester. "But he must have eight brothers and loads of sisters, a big family, and they are all City fans. I think in his local pub they are all City fans, and he is the loan United fan. It would be lovely to put one over on City.""
Perhaps Coventry City should utilise this fan loan scheme as they only managed to pull in 8,162 for their home 3rd Round match!
