iPhone app that mocks Man City's long wait for silverware

Table of Contents
A soccer fan and his techie mate have come up with an iPhone app that mocks Manchester City's inability to win a major trophy for the last 34 miserable years.

Billed as "Manchester's Neverending Clock", they've even taken out a roadside billboard poster advertising their 59p mobile phone download.

The iPhone app that ticks away the time since City last won a trophy
The app mirrors the banner on display at Manchester United home matches showing the years, minutes and seconds since the Eastlands club last won a silverware – which was back in 1976.

It comes 12 months after City goaded United fans with a billboard hailing their new signing, Carlos Tévez from their city rivals.

The man behind app, Lester Hadfield, 28, from Blackley, Manchester, said the idea came while watching City struggle to a 1-1 draw with West Ham.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It was a bit of light- hearted joke at first.

"My mate has a company, the Francesco Consultancy, which does iPhone apps and he asked me if I had any ideas.

"As I was watching the City game, it dawned on me.

"They haven't won anything for years and had done the Tévez thing, so I thought this would be a bit of decent banter.

"At the start it was just a laugh but we've had over 2,000 downloads – including some City fans."

Mr Hadfield added: "We've got a few things in the pipeline. It's years since Liverpool last won the Premier League so we might set one up for that."
