Well worth a look.

Blues Muse
Nicely-written site that serves up 'midlife meanderings' about life and about City.

Excellent site with beautifully-written articles about City from the 1960s onwards.
Its author Simon Curtis also runs Monument City, another site about City that's 
more nostalgia and music based. 

King of the Kippax
Home of the only surviving City fanzine.

Bi-weekly newsletter that began in 1994, long before computers were invented..

Without a Dream in our Hearts
Thoughtful writing from Indonesia-based Mark Wilson. His other (non City) blogs are
also worth a read.

                                          Current Statistics                                                    

ESPN's Soccernet Stats

contract lengths and names of players' agents. Its referee analysis breaks down the combined
results and cards awarded for each referee, the goalkeepers section lists the minutes-per-goal
for each City keeper. The site even has details of all thepenalties taken since 1992-93.

Daily Telegraph's Premier League stats

The biggest City talkboard by far. Plenty of interesting threads each day and always
something to make you laugh. Best avoided after a disappointing result though, when
it transforms into 'Bluemoan'.

Fun place that occasionally breaks out into civil war (kinda like a cross between
Denmark and Rwanda). Mellowed a bit following the Sheikh's spending spree, and
now has more of a Charles Manson-on-Prozac feel to it.

Lively forum. Site also includes video and photo albums and a games room.
(Registration required)

A long-running site that's a bit different to the other forums. It's basically one long
debate about TV, politics and music - interspersed with City chat. And lots of stuff
about biscuits.

Friendly forum, created in 2005.

Wookies Lair
Long-running site - and probably the one with the highest proportion of broadsheet readers. (Registration required)

MCFC Forum
Friendly forum. (Registration required)

Planet MCFC
Established in 2009, this appears to be a place populated by former members of

Blue Heaven
Another friendly forum with a good community feel.
