Instead of being in my seats at The Etihad, I was in The Celtic Manor in Newport where I had just keynoted “Winning in a Crazy World” to 450 soccer coaches at the Wales F.A. National Coaches Conference. Having followed City legends Yaya Touré and Gaël Clichy on stage, I rushed down to the Cellar Bar at 4.01pm and settled in for another Man City roller-coaster ride. I was surrounded by the 2022/3 cohort of UEFA Pro-Licence candidates I’ll be working with for the next two days – a Man City coach on one side, a Liverpudlian on the other. What a game!
Liverpool won – and so did we. 2-nil down until the 72ndminute – and then three goals in five minutes. Incredible. Our 4thPremier League Championship in five seasons.
Superbia in Proelio.
