There'll be a lot of reminiscing about Dave in the coming weeks/months/years, but I'm going to throw my fave ever Dave goal in here. The one that prompted this celebration...

It's so simple yet so beautiful how he leaves the defenders so flat footed with one touch. Legend that lad.
Yet the greatest accolade the media could muster was to name him player of the month once in his 10 years with us

Reading the articles and quotes makes it all too real. Going to be missed. Probably the finest player I have ever had the privilege to watch at city.

Ashamed to say I wrote him off early in Peps tenure, foolish I know, however, I guess what epitomises the man is his ability to fight and come again...

Easily our greatest ever player just because of the levels over the 10 years, we had flashes from Yaya and Komps but the little magician did it pretty much for a decade.

a sad day Sunday from a domestic point, however the story isn’t yet over, maybe, just maybe, he gets the final piece missing in the guise of the CL, what an ending that would be!

Legend and a wonderful person on and off the pitch. Proper role-model and professional.

Came to think about his wonder-goal against Hull when we went down to 10 men early, how important that was for the title we won later.

Thank you for everything, Merlin

That whole performance was just next level. Pretty sure he played up front most of the game
