    I sort of stumbled on this one and can only imagine instances when a player is sold by and loaned back to a club being close to it.

    But i dont think that counts in the same way.

    I reckon City also have claim to the longest and shortest names in the same team.

    Possibly Jo and Wright-Phillips

    I've been racking my brains and can't think of this being true anywhere else. It may have happened - at one point I was thinking it might even have happened with City with an outgoing player like Tueart or Hartford who then came back, but in each case our record transfer (Steve Daley) wouldn't have been playing.

    On a related theme... We must have had players who appeared in our record books as both our record buy and record sell at the same time. Presumably Denis Law was both our record incoming and our record outgoing transfer at the same time (1961 when he went to Torino). That can't have happened too many times with us.

    That was Helen mate, but I'm sure we could make some sort of song up out of this ;-)

    When she passed away her grandson loaned the bell and the blue wig she had started to wear at games to the museum. The bell was on display until the end of last season (presumably it's now in the archive) and proved to be one of the most popular exhibits, known by fans of other clubs as well as City.

    Yeah i was thinking along simialr lines and of course it goes in favour if the player moves quite quickly as well.

    Thats the stand out bit about SWP as he was away for a few years as well, boy we fleeced them.

    That'll teach em for thinking money can buy......erm maybe not!
