    Ronnie Ekuland. Obviously I do know he played for us but seems incredulous that such a high profile player, ex-barcelona, had so little impact at the club. I sort of know he played for us but still have to check on wiki he did.

    Some Benjamin Mendy guy who seems to have won all of these trophies without being in sight!

    I was looking a City on the transfer history website a couple of weeks ago and apparently we signed an Eduard Abazi from Boavista in 95/96. I have no recollection of this at all.

    He was on the bench for the FA Cup tie at the swamp that season IIRC.

    My one and only time in a box at Maine Road was v Mansfield.... Friend of a friend invited me on the day otherwise i wouldn't have bothered.
    There were 7 of us in the box at Platt Lane end and a geezer came in to do a count for the attendance... When announced as 3007 we laughed and declared ourselves as "the seven".

    Bill Williams.....
    Came on as sub v Ipswich at Portman Road.... Never played again.
    Got special approval from the league to re-sign for Stockport..... Preferred being part time and a painter and decorater than a full time pro

    The Only Team in Manchester!
    There’s only one William Williams!

    I think the phrase "never heard of" might not be the right one.

    It would probably be more accurate to say, "forgotten about".
