We are all familiar with the records City have taken during the Centurions and Fourmidable seasons and that City hold the record domestic game attendance outside of Wembley. That along side only team to win the League and be relegated the following season and both scoring / Conceeding 100 goals in a season etc etc.

There are other records that City hold that dont get mentioned often and maybe @Gary James can chip in / confirm or deny a few I have mentioned here.... (Not sure if some are the only time it has happened or the last time)

Oldest Premier League player John Burridge (43)

Last team to score 10 goals in a League game

Only / last game to have 3 hatrick scorers

Ken Barnes only / last player to score 3 penalties in a League game

Roy Clarke played three consecutive games in 3 different divisions (played penultimate game of 3rd Division for Cardiff, signed for City and played final game in 2nd Division and 1st game of the following season in 1st Division)

Eric Nixon only / last player to play in all 4 Divisions in the same season when on loan from City.
Southampton 1st Div
Bradford City 2nd Div
Carlisle United 3rd Div
Wolves 4th Div

Anymore?

To clarify the Ken Barnes penalty item - he's not the only one to do so. Charlie Mitten scored a hat-trick of penalties for Man Utd v Aston Villa in 1950. Barnes (1957) may be the last player to do so, though ( v Everton)
