    Pure class and his roll after being fouled against Wolves (think it was Lescott and he got a red) was the best I've ever seen !!

    That season was the first time I'd watched City in total awe, with the second time being the first half of the title winning 2011/12 season. We blitzed Division 1 with some bewildering, unbelievable football. I can't remember which broadcaster it was (maybe Setanta), but they had the rights to Division 1 football & admitted City were the only big draw they had. KK complained that we hadn't played at 3pm on a Saturday for weeks because our games were always resheduled for live TV.

    I also recall when teams in the PL started paying attention after our narrow Cup defeat away to Newcastle. We controlled the game, but just couldn't match Newcastle's firepower. However the Rag hoards I worked with were impressed, albeit they believed we were no match for them.... Shaun Goater had quite a bit to say about that! :-)

    Yes and Dave Jones complained he was still rolling down Claremont Road an hour after the match... Lol :-)

    Didn't that short lived digital channel from ITV have the rights for, at least, some of the games in the football league that season?

    We were treated to some fantastic football in the Championship winning season.

    Not quite, Sunderland had arranged a trial match for him versus City, KK wasn't watching/going to watch, assistant (Arthur Cox?) remembered him playing a european match v Newcastle & told Keegan to go & watch, unexpectedly Peter Reid didn't turn up so City nipped in.
