Gillingham at Wembley , nothing will ever compare that day !
We were dead and buried ....... doomed as a football club but somehow some way we clawed it all back in the final seconds . That was fucking pure emotion on another scale back from the brink / edge of a cliff !!! Today’s glory hunter fans can fucking do one ! x

Gillingham for me too. Pure rollercoaster of emotions that day!! And without it, we wouldn't be here. In fact, at one point me and my brother were discussing if we'd support another team if/when City went under and didn't exist.

That's the one that stuck in my mind.

Yep that one for me too, just odd i could see our fans out the corner of my eyes leaving in their droves thinking, "well what's the point in that, your coaches back home won't leave any earlier"

The peno shoot out with half our fans turning their back on the action, then Nicky Weaver doing his campest chase me, chase me which was funny as fuck and then glimpsing up at the other end of the stadium completely empty within what seem like seconds.

Took me two days to get my voice back properly :lol: :lol:

If you were to ask me what my worst memory as a City fan, it'd be the last game at Maine Road :cry:

Giligham for me also.

I arrived in London alongside my uncle, not having a clue what was happening. If my memory is not playing games, the rags just won the UCL unfair with Bayer, so I wasen't in my best mood. Anyhow, we were walking around and saw a fantastic number of blue shirts that had Manchester written there.

Never felt in love with anyone more than I felt in love with that shirt.

I walked out crying like a fuckign baby when we had 4 mins left and when I heard the cheers I sprinted to the hotel (Hilton I think it was where I was staying ) and watched the rest on telly in one of the bars.

This was THE best moment imo as if we had lost we would 100% not be here now..at least not as we know it.

I think also my first ever City match with my dad. It wasn't one that the average fan will remember, it's just one of my favourite memories because at the time I was a 6 year old kid that "supported" the rags because everyone else in school did. That day I remember running back to the car with my dad saying "we won dad we won!!" never looked back since.

Jeez....62 years of shifting cobwebs in the head. So, like WW I have done a top 10. (and probably missed a few)

1 The Aguerooooooo moment has to be the one that reduced me to tears of joy more that any other incident.
2 The Dickov goal at Wembley v Gillingham almost had me in a state of collapse. Seriously had me gasping for breath.
3 The Colin Bell return..I have never heard Maiine Road so silent as the realisation set in he was on the pitch. Then a huge eruption of noise.
4 1968, Winning the League at Newcastle and realising that of the (possibly) millions of football clubs at all levels in the country, my team was the best.
5 Post match Newcastle 1968; Outside the main entrance of St James Park as the players came out and being the only one to spot Joe Mercer. We hugged and danced in a circle, just Joe and me, before we got engulfed by other fans. I have the pics of that, thanks to Walshawe Blue.
6 1968; beating the rags 3-1 at the swamp, overtaking them at the top of the league. and finally beating them at the swamp. It opened the door for us to win the League.
7 Transfer deadline day, waiting for news of new City players and finding City had transferred the whole club to Sheik Mansour.
8 Learning Swales had sold the club to Frannie Lee.
9 This season, the whole of it. The wins, the goals, the performances, the amazing football \City have played and the knowledge that I am priviledged to have seen the best ever City team in the club's very long history.
10 Isn't a memory but hopefull will be...The belief that this team can actually get better.
I KNOW THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT YOU THINK I WROTE, BUT I AM NOT SURE YOU REALISE THAT WHAT YOU READ IS NOT WHAT I MEANT

Great list. As mentioned the play off final as well. And I’d always throw in the first time you saw City in the flesh. Mine was in ‘83 in a nondescript game in October v Middlesbrough. The first time you walk out into the stadium and as a young lad marvel at the size of it all. The crowd, the smells, the noise, the floodlights all come together to give a bug that can’t be shaken. From that moment you just know that City will always be a big part of your life, even then

Gillingham for me. Amazing day out, never heard noise like it. Total despair turned into to total joy. Arguably we wouldn't be where we are now without that result.
Couldn't talk for 3 days afterwards from shouting myself hoarse.
