Ah, the hashtag. Mostly misused, misunderstood and misspelled.

Nonetheless, this was really good. On Saturday morning (you know, back when we were all confident) the #skyblueconfessions hashtag emerged on Twitter and offered a little fun for Cov fans while we waited for the game to begin.

Turns out it was the best part of the day.

For those of you who don’t use Twitter, I thought I’d share a selection of best ones (starting with mine, obviously). Supporting City’s fast becoming a confession in itself, so if you’ve got any of your own to add, drop it into the comments below..

  1. For my A Level’s, I wrote a short play which included the characters Gordy McScott, Willo and Paul Welfer, in which a stubborn Scottish manager had to explain why he’d spent £12 million on a Tongan left back. Absolutely true. It only got a C!!
