Noel Gallagher has been speaking of the dramatic events yesterday (May 14th) which led to his beloved Manchester City winning their first league title since 1968.
Trailing 2-1 at home to Queens Park Rangers with just minutes remaining of their final game of the season, it seemed Man City were set to hand the trophy once again to near neighbours and bitter rivals Manchester United, who had themselves already sealed a 1-0 victory at Sunderland while the final seconds ticked away at the Etihad Stadium.
However, a last-gasp strike by Sergio Aguero, which followed an equaliser from Edin Dzeko just seconds earlier, was enough to see Manchester City pip Alex Ferguson’s side to the title on goal difference.
And thousands of miles away from his hometown, in a bar in Chile, one of the club’s most famous supporters was caught up in the day’s incredible drama. “It started off tense, then it went from tense into elation and then back to tension,” Noel Gallagher has told the BBC.
“It seemed like QPR were in the lead for a lifetime and it was very dark. Right before we scored, I thought ‘We need it now, if we’re going to do it, we need to do it now’. And then when Dzeko scored, I don’t know what happened after that, there was a lot of swearing.”
“My mate tried to pull the TV off the wall,” he said of the events immediately following Aguero’s winner. “I swore a lot and then I cried like a baby because I’ve never seen anything like that before. It was mindblowing.”
Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher, once again a very prominent presence at the game, gave a simple message on Twitter to mark the occasion, writing: ‘FERGIE OUT ! LG’.Just Published:
