Meet the real star of Saturday’s West Bromwich Albion match - Mavis ‘the Grandma’ Goddard.
Mavis’ image flashed up onto the big screens during City’s 3-0 victory against the Albion at the City of Manchester Stadium. Upon spotting herself being beamed around the ground, her mixed reaction of both horror and delight immediately endeared her to the City thousands.
Both Blues and Baggies fans began to direct jovial chants towards Mavis, who has a season-ticket in the East Stand, and Citytv cameras continued to sporadically flash her face up on the screens. ‘Grandma’ was even spotted doing the Poznan after Carlos Tevez had completed his hat-trick!
It’s another example of how City fans’ spontaneous good-humoured soul can turn a face in the crowd into the star of the show. Who knows who or what will be next! Watch out for out exclusive ‘Grandma’ video chat later today.
