YORK CITY SOUTH
Debbie Harry Supports City
You probably didn't know that Debbie Harry is a big City fan, but witness her single "Denis" which she named after her favourite blond defender, Denis Smith. With lyrics like
It sound like Debbie had a crush on Denis Smith, or did he really suffer all those broken legs and bones on the pitch, or were they the result of a secret romance with Debbie.
Surely the title of an early Blondie album, "Parallel Lifes" (sic) inspired the likes of Neil Thompson and Chris Brass, 2 disappointments as player manager, as well as Booby Saxton and Viv Busby, 2 well respected personalities who failed spectacularly as City managers.
Some words from "Dreaming" also prompt questions and show great foresight. As City fans, we all dream of greater success and our hard work after the Craig / Batchelor fiasco rescued our club and ensured we didn't have to live off charity.
And just who was Debbie supposed to meet at the turnstile? Was it Ray Wynn, perhaps Terry Exelby, or maybe one of our above average age supporters, or maybe even a 16 year old. If you were that man, email your webmaster now.
York City supporters can raise money for the club while telephoning their mates to discuss the latest results thanks to its new fund-raising initiative, City Talk.
Billy McEwan and the players took a break from training (September 6, 2005) to officially launch the new scheme, which will enable supporters to raise money and also reduce their phone bills by simply switching phone services.
City Talk, powered by Yorkshire based telecommunications provider Charitel. Charitel, works by paying a fixed donation of 5% of your phone bill to York City each month.
If every York City fan who attended the Cambridge home game switched to City Talk., they could raise £33,000 for the club this year. For further details call 0870 232 0000 or visitwww.charitytelecom.co.uk
