On this day in 1962, Bert Trautmann was sent off for kicking the ball at the referee after conceding the fifth goal in a 6-1 defeat by West Ham

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.
Bloody hilarious that was, it was a wet day at the Baseball Ground, Derby and the spot had disappeared in the mud. The ref paced it out but must have had short strides as it was only about 9 yards from the goal! Cue Big Joe giving him some right stick and getting booked. The groundsman then came on with a measure and some marker paint. We still got hammered though!

Pick any day of the year and I'll give you a City fact from that day in history


christmas day 1980 ??

You can't pick a year, just a date.

Xmas day 1902 was the first time that Manchester City played Manchester United. The game ended 1-1, Billy Meredith scoring for us.
