    Man City score with the last kick of the game at Blackpool in the 4th round of the FA Cup back in January 1988. Old school movement is to be cherished!

    36 second video footage of the last minute equaliser and City fans going mad.

    It's barm so STFU.
    Yes, I started out at the back of the terrace and ended up halfway down after that goal. I'd paid a tout £12 for a ticket too (face value was £3 or £4) so would have been well pissed off if we'd lost. Happy days!

    Pissed up like a lot of blues that day, boddies pub near ground
    Some Blackburn youth ( rover's firm ) turned up to check us out and back the seasiders and they ended up getting a right kicking

    I was there right in the middle. It went mental and seemed to go on for ever

    I was in the covered terrace opposite the camera. Went fucking mental for that Lake goal. Banged my knee on the crush-barrier; it was absolute agony. There were some seriously pissed up blues in front of us that kept singing “we’re on the march with Billy’s army...” even though McNeill had quit the club two years beforehand. Fucking amateurs.

    I was in the stand to the left with the roof on, wishing I was in the one behind the net!

    The locals weren't too happy after, but loads of blues, ready for anything!

    I was there, good times, we had a few lively trips to Blackpool in cup games around that time, we weren't always impeccable.

    Other than 1981, that was my favourite cup run that didn’t end in a cup win.
