jamesha said:My worst City experience was the last home game of the 88/89 season versus Bournemouth at Maine Road.
It was a beautiful sunny day and if City won they were promoted.
Paul Moulden scored after two minutes. "Tricky" Trevor Morley added a beauty then Moulden followed up to tap in a loose ball after a Hinchcliffe free kick.
The sun was shining, beachballs were being punted around the Kippax, there was a real party atmosphere - we were going up!
Unfortunately Bournemouth (and Ian Bishop in particular) had other ideas. City sat back in the second half allowing Bishop to take control. They scored twice and the party atmosphere evaporated. The game went of forever and, in the 95th minute, Hinchcliffe brought down old stager Luther Blisset in the area. He picked himself up and drove in the penalty to level the scores.
I had gone to every home game and about eight away games that season and was pretty obsessed by City at the time. It had been a season of great drama with incredible highs and lows and City seemed to have thrown it away in the most spectacular way imaginable.
Luckily the team had the character to grind out a result away at Bradford in the next game but the intervening week was awful.
