    Were you there?

    One of the best City games and performances from the 1990’s.

    John Motson after the game:

    “The finest match I’ve seen this season. Indeed, the best in entertainment & attacking context that I’ve been privileged to see for many years in the English league.

    This was a throwback to how football used to be and hopefully how it’s getting to be again now”

    A pretty incredible statement from Motson there at the end of the game. You’d never get a commentator making comments like that about non title competing sides now.

    Its Guinness time any day of the week.
    One of Beagries finest games and Paul Walsh was outstanding that day.

    Probably in my top five ever City games. A brilliant spectacle of attacking football, from both sides. Properly buzzed of that game for months, maybe even years. Can still remember the starting line-up off the top of my head (although will probably now get it wrong):

    Dibble

    Edghill
    Brightwell
    Curle
    Phelan

    Flitcroft
    Lomas

    Summerbee
    Walsh
    Quinn
    Beagrie

    An unorthodox 4-2-4. Great days. Almost as good was the 4-3 at Loftus Road a few days later(?).

    Yep, relocated to the North Stand for a season as the Kippax was being rebuilt. A few goals were scored at the North Stand right in front of me

    Summerbee got some really undeserved stick as a city player, although he lacked pace, he was an intelligent player (like Ricky Holden). That 4-2-4 was up there with the best I've seen over the last 40 years in terms of excitement.

    I was in the first few rows of the North Stand behind the goal. Spurs had some great players in that team but were easy to score against.

    I remember thinking that Spurs looked like scoring every time they went forward. As a city fan I couldn’t compute that they looked like conceding every time we went forward..
    As an aside, Phelan and Curle would both get into our current team and would make it hugely better.
