‘Where were you when you were shit?!’ shrieked thousands of rival fans at City’s long suffering support last season. Time for a reminder of precisely where…

‘Down Among The Dead Men’ as it was summed up in Mark Hodkinson’s brilliant account of a season in the third tier of English football.

Sunday 30th May 1999 and one Paul Dickov scored arguably the most important goal in Manchester City’s history. Sergio Aguero certainly runs him close now in legendary status but without Bobbit, City would never ever have stood a chance of becoming English Champions again.

Arch rag but alright geezer Ian Brown once said ‘not in this lifetime’ of a Stone Roses reunion. Taggart said similar of a Manchester power shift. Now both are realised in the same year. File under we’re not really here!

Drop us a line at VMC with your memories of that amazing day at old Wembley…
