    Is it true that City have still only sold one player to Arsenal since the war? (Tommy Caton)

    I wonder if City are unique if having record transfers in the same team?

    Incoming Robi £32.5m

    Outgoing SWP £23m

    That's a great one and I can't think of another instance. Usually a big outgoing transfer would not come back for several years by which time their fee would be eclipsed. It's possible it's happened at a lower level or if a player's been sold but come back on loan.

    I'd be very interested in this. Great one!

    Amanda, the only fact I have about that day is pretty rubbish. I can't give any team scores as it's the middle of summer. Perhaps Gary can help me out

    Lee Bradbury was born in Cowes on 3rd July 1975. Len Jobling (a City player from 1912) died in Sunderland on 3rd July 1967 (closest I can get to 1968).

    David Shawcross (50s/60s player) was born on 3rd July 1941.

    Hope this helps.

    1968 - City win 4-0 at Sunderland. Lee (2), Bell and Summerbee score our goals
