In the 1977 close season, Channon left Southampton — still in the Second Division — to join Manchester City in a £300,000 deal. His new club were making progress, having just finished second in the First Division behind champions Liverpool, but this was where they peaked and Channon struggled to settle. He scored just 12 goals in his first season and 11 in his second
Struggled to settle doesn't mean he played badly and spent all the game on his arse, which was the point I was really replying to.
But as you pulled that text from wiki, I am thinking you're more arsed about 24 or 23 goals, so go back and read the apps/goals part in the top right and it says 24 goals.
Also, says 24 on this site
