Chris Bird, Ex-City Executive, Supports The Trust

Chris Bird is a City fan and known to most, if not all, Manchester City fans. He spent four years at our Club as Chief Operating Officer and Board Director. Chris is the managing director of his own public relations company and has a wide range of other commitments within Manchester and the community.

We are pleased that Chris supports the trust, his statement follows:-

"Dear All

Taking an interest in your football club at whatever level is important. Through good times and bad there is always a consistent factor, THE FANS.

During my time at City I championed the 2 campaigns that reflected the relationship a club should have with its fans. 'Supporting our supporters' and 'Putting the fans first' were not just marketing themes, the whole board were as one in ensuring there was a tangible delivery. This was driven I feel by the spirit of the 98/99 season.

The supporters trust could now have an ideal opportunity to play an important role in bringing back the feeling of togetherness to the club. We have witnessed what can be done when we are as one. And we have suffered when we have been at odds.

The supporters trust may not yet have an official role to play at the club but their voice, together with those of supporters clubs and fans alike must be heard and never ignored.

Our Chairman must be supported, our team encouraged and our fans respected. We all have a duty to deliver.

Chris Bird"

Losing two diehard City fans in Chris Bird and David Bernstein four years ago was one serious blow for our Club; a blow from which we have not recovered. Although Chris Bird was a tough character when employed by the Club, I strongly believe that he did have the fans interests at heart. It's refreshing to see that he still clearly loves City and supports the Chairman, the trust and most importantly us the fans. Chris you are sorely missed, Tyrell has a lot to live up to and is a poor imitation of the standards that were in place before him.

When Chris was at City, I once sent an email to his City email account (good guess) and he responded to it. I can't even remember what the complaint was now, but I do remember that he took the time to reply. A good man, sorely missed by the club.
