    I was at the match, can't remember who we played. At the time we had an academy lad called Chris Shuker who had made a few appearances. I thought it was him on the pitch and thought 'wow, this kid is shit hot'. I turned round to some old boy sat next to me (I was in the maine stand) and he told me it was some Algerian lad Keegan had signed.

    What a debut! Everytime he got the ball he did something exciting, skillful or mesmerising with it. I remember the whole stadium standing up whenever he got the ball. You could feel the excitement in the ground for this second coming of Kinkladze.

    Leaving the ground after the match all you could hear around you were conversations about how brilliant our little new signing was.

    It truly was the best ever debut by a city player I had ever seen.

    Did you miss the Samaras debut? He left defenders in heaps on the ground.

    Don't know, can't even remember if we won or not, I'm assuming we did though.

    The end of season dvd/vhs, whatever it was back then (!), was basically pornography that season.

    I don't remember a player called "Bernarbia", mentioned in the thread title.

    We did, however, have a player called "Benarbia", who was pretty good, and was always referred to by the guy sitting next to me as "the genius".

    Are you thinking of him perhaps?

    I was sat in the maine stand with my rag mate as my dad couldn't attend, he was raving about how good his debut was.
