I never have any difficulty in feeling pride in where I come from. Manchester as a town is pretty special - I always find myself waxing lyrical about it to anyone who makes the mistake in just saying it is a ‘football town’. It’s a historic, political, industrial, scientific, musical, religious, record breaking, educational, technological town before I even start on anything to do with sport, the media and popular culture. But it IS without doubt a footballing town. And if it takes a football team to take poetry to the masses then I love my city that bit more. Respect to Manchester United for kicking off the season 2012/13 with a rousing poem and huge respect and thanks to Mike Garry for articulating Manchester Pride so well. I am beaming from ear to ear. To think I sat in the same politics class as you, Mike :-)
The nice people at DMC Online have posted a super feature on me today.
Reflecting honestly, it’s been quite a few years since I last had a mention in the UK press so for this I am eternally grateful …
For now. In this moment. It feels bloody marvellous to be able stand in that spotlight.
Thank you Dan and all at DMC. Much appreciated.
