    Joe Hart never had one despite being at City for twelve years.

    Micah Richards never had one despite ten years in the first team and fourteen years with the club.

    Richard Dunne got close playing into his tenth season for us (nine years) but was sold to Villa by Hughes before he got to ten years.

    How many of Hart's 12 seasons were in our 1st team though?
    Micah was in the first team for 9 seasons and on loan to Fiorentina for his final season.

    Staing the obvious there - still a former city player like Kompany and in the last 30 years, and lots of City fans went or bought non-attendance tickets.

    I personally wont go to a testimonial, prefer the type of send off zabba got and yaya.

    back in the day it was a golden hand shake for the player, i remember going to joe corrigans testimonial donkeys years ag. But players these days get one of those every week with high wages.

    if anybody in the last 30 years has deserved his own night it would be Vinny though.

    Didn’t he set the precedent for donating the proceeds to charity?
