Wolves? Nah, too nervous (BTW I got on the telly too)
Liverpool? Close, but after Wetheralls goal, can't remember a thing.
Barnsley at home, "Flash"'s 2nd saw me rolling around on the floor at the back of Midland Road with "Is It A Man Or A Woman" directly under the gaze of 100 tattoed-mastachioed-ex-miners, and I couldn't give a flying one.
Chrissy Waddles demoltion of Everton, and Tranmere away are worthy runners up.
Preston 4 - Bradford 5 in the FA Cup on their plastic pitch. I was praying Preston would score in the 90th minute so we could have 30 more minutes of top notch entertainment.
Hull 2 - Bradford 3, last game of the season, we took the home end, loads of pitch invasions, rioting after the game, us running for cover and having to hide our shirts and scarves on the way home. Ormondroyd played an absolute blinder and we nipped in for the play off spot. A truly surreal experience.
2-2 against burnley a few years ago when we had 2 players sent off for trivial things. we were 1-0 up at half time then 2-1 down, and in the last 15 minutes burnely were taking the piss with the ball and messing around. 3 minutes into injury time claus jorgensen took the ball off one of theirs and ran through on goal, his first shot was saved, his second hit the post and michael proctor tapped in.
2-1 vs arsenal in the premiership. probably a bigger scalp than liverpool.
City 2 Middlesbrough 0 - 87/88
City 2 Wolves 1 - 98/99
City 2 Chelsea 0 - 00/01
Three of the most complete City home performance I can remember, though I vastly enjoyed the Chelsea match, I knew the months ahead would still be tough, though I kept my opinion to myself on the night!
The first 45 minutes against Norwich at VP in the 99 promotion season were also superb.
Blackpool away in 96. after the debacle at VP, i thought why not go on a bender in blackpool any way win or lose, and bought a ticket off a blackpool fan in the innman before the match at VP.....pure class
Wolves, Wembley, Blackpool and Liverpool deserve mention because of the drama - but take the drama away were they the best ever City game? Nah - not a chance, Wolves was a decent game but Wembley and Liverpool were shite games if all told - Blackpool away was just us giving someone a hiding......you've got to look beyond the drama and look at the actual game!!
Because of that Tranmere last season - 5-4 in terms of goals scored, football played - and the last minute winner has to be the greatest ever - at least in my 24 years of watching City!!......
My personal favourite game,
There's many certainly including the more famous ones,as mentioned in this thread.
At Wolves, Home to Liverpool (and also beating them in 1981), Wembley, QPR,Blackpool.
However, one that comes to mind is back in 1977, I was a 13 year old lad, I'd followed City for a few seasons, because many of my pals supported Leeds and Liverpool, I went alone quite often to watch City.
I took a lot of ribbing for supporting a fourth division club, but as I pointed out to them, I get to see my team play, not have to wait for MOTD.
Anyway I digress,
It was at home against Bournemouth, we really needed to win, but after a hard fought game, and a goal from Cooke, we drew 1:1.
Then the news came over the tinny tannoy that Swansea had been beat 4:0 at Watford! We were promoted, the first bit of success I'd experienced following my club, it had been worth it.
I was as pleased as punch, I was so proud I don't think I took my scarfe off for the close season.
