    Not necessarily anything more than a dig at the rags but

    City were one of the first to install undersoil heating and it rarely/never failed, unlike Uniteds more technically advanced solution that didnt like cold weather.

    Fraid not. 1878 lights were used for the first time in a game at Bramall Lane. Sorry! Another fact... Maine Road was selected (above Wembley and all other grounds) to stage the first ever World cup qualifying match played in England. There had been World Cup matches elsewhere for years, but when England entered for the first time in 1949 (for the 1950 finals), Maine Road staged the first qualifier (V Ireland).

    I'm reading Mike Summerbee's autobiography at the moment. He says that similar to "Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young", at City it always should have been "Lee, Bell, Summerbee and Young"

    Unfortunately, if that's from the book it's wrong - we'd had at least 1 other rep on the League Management Committee (Joshua Parlby in our first season as MCFC).

    So here's a replacement for 29th feb - 29th February 1992 - City beat Aston Villa 2-0 at Maine Road watched by a crowd of 28,268. The goals were scored by Niall Quinn and David White.
