    I like facts and as the folks here at Blue Moon are the most knowledgeable on the planet I thought it might help those new to the blue faith (possibly watching from a sunnier place) to learn about the less well known bits of City's history.

    So here we go.

    City once missed 3 penalties in a game against Newcastle.

    City are the only team to be relegated from the top flight as:

    1. Reigning champions
    2. Top scorers in the division
    3. With a positive goal difference

    And all those were in the same season, 1937/38!

    Oooh i like that one.

    Joe Corrigan was once booked for pacing out the distance to the pen spot after the ref had placed it. He was right but got booked anyway.
