Noel Gallgher to Appear at Man City's Homecoming Party?
Oasis star Noel Gallagher and Badly Drawn Boy singer Damon Gough are set to take the stage at City’s sold-out homecoming party.
The M.E.N. understands Burnage-born Gallagher, a lifelong Blue, is currently in discussions with the club. And officials hope Gough, from Chorlton, will also take part in the celebrations after Roberto Mancini’s men have paraded the FA Cup through the city on an open-top bus.
It is also thought members of the last Blues squad to win the Cup, in 1969, will be honoured on what promises to be a night to remember for fans. All 47,000 free tickets for Monday’s extravaganza have been snapped up.
Details of City's victory parade and fan party
The Blues will head to Eastlands from Albert Square at 6pm. They are expected at the stadium at 8pm. A giant fireworks display is expected to bring the curtain down on the evening at around 9.45pm.
Manchester council expects more than 100,000 fans to turn out for the parade and event. Some 400 police officers have been drafted in to deal with the crowds.
# A memorial match will take place tomorrow at Hyde’s Ewen Fields in memory of City legend Ken Barnes, who passed away last July.
Barnes played nearly 300 times for the Blues and, in an association with the club that lasted 46 years, he also worked as assistant manager, coach and chief scout. Several of the youngsters he helped recruit will turn out for the 3pm match.
The teams include ex-Maine Road heroes Uwe Rosler, Paul Dickov, Asa Hartford, Andy Morrison, Ian Brightwell, Kevin Reeves, Colin Hendry, Richard Edghill and Neil Pointon.
Admission will be £5 for adults and £3 for children, with all proceeds going to the Stroke Society Fund. Team One will be coached by Shaun Goater and Paul Lake, while club ambassador Mike Summerbee will be in charge of Team Two.
