    I'm talking about goals like Dwight Gayle's against Liverpool in 2014. Goals that weren't scored for City, but helped us out massively.

    A crucial goal in our history that often gets overlooked is Matt Mills' goal for Reading in the FA Cup last 16 against Everton in 2011. Our record against Everton was absolutely hideous at the time. This goal meant we had a home time against a Championship side in Reading in the quarter-final instead of a tricky game against Everton. We went on to win the FA Cup that season.

    Added bonus is that Matt Mills was a former City graduate.

    I have always said to myself I will buy Steven Pienaar a drink if I ever bump into him for what he did


    Cheers Stevie !

    That’s the one that came to mind for me. We were in a pub in Wolves (I think) and the place went absolutely apeshit

    Steven Piernaar, Demba Ba, Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez are the ones that stand out for me.

    To me that game is up there with some of our greatest results.

    I believe some City fans ran into him in Manchester airport after the QPR game and let him know how they appreciated his goal
