1976 League cup final (my first City match)
The Maine Road Massaca
Millwall away 1998, drew 1-1 got out the ground gone midnight but lived to tell the tale
Gillingham play-off obviously
Blackburn away the following season where they hit the woodwork 4/5 times but we won 4-1 with 30,000+ on the hill
Al the Premiership spankings of the rags
The whole of last season

That was a great goal. So sweet. I think it was in April on grand national day?

That's a shame , apparently Harry Kane claimed it ... it became an ex-musampa :-).

Me and my son taking our first trip to The Etihad last season. Treated ourselves to hospitality and we beat Palace 5-0 with Merlin scoring after two minutes.

Not necessarily my favourite, but a great memory for me was Sven's first game when we won 2-0 away at West Ham. We had all these new signings and we were magnificent that day. It was topped off by Onohua's incredible run to set up our second goal.

To me this was the start of when our fortunes began to change. We had a great start to the season and even though it faded out, it led to us being taken over by Sheikh Mansour.

I was still living in the UK at the time so was at this game. Great weather, great performance, great result.


I remember this game fondly too for exactly the same reasons, felt like we had made some excitung signings and with Sven in charge the start of what was to come.

Was on holiday with my brother, nan and grandad, we also won the Derby early in the season with a Geovanni goal, 10 City fans in a pub full of rags on Portugal going crazy getting pissed on Blue Moon cocktails.

Agree with all the memories on here. Gillingham was an amazing day and a great memory. I loved Andy Morrison. Such a shit position to be in. Me and my brother used to love going behind the net that season giving the keepers shit and trying to spot ourselves on granada reports.

I really enjoyed the first half of Sven's season too, and probably for the same reasons.
Even the sun seemed to shine at all of those games.

Was interested to see the side that day..

Man City: Schmeichel, Richards, Corluka (Onuoha 62), Dunne, Garrido, Elano (Geovanni 80), Hamann, Johnson, Petrov, Ireland, Bianchi (Bojinov 61).
Subs Not Used: Hart, Gelson.

Not a bad side and one that looked like it had few shrewd signings (didn't turn out that way in the main) mixed with academy talent. The Schmeichel vs Hart starting debate too, forgot about that

That's actually not a bad team at ali now that you think about it.
Sometimes we're good and sometimes we're bad but when we're good, at least we're much better than we used to be and when we are bad we're just as bad as we always used to be, so that's got to be good hasn't it?

No. I was a massive Corluka fan.
