13 years ago today. This legend. This dick(ov) made Man City go back up into division 1 (Championship but before it was called it).
We were dead and buried. Gillingham we 2-0 after 90 minutes. In 3 minutes it was 2-2. It eventually went to pens and we had pulled off something we would do against QPR.
That kit may still be 1 of the worst we ever played in, but my god I'll never forget it.
To this day this match is Division 2s (League 1 before called it) highest attendance I believe and it's the match that would change football years later on.
Gillingham never recovered and are in League 2 I think now. We went straight back up from the division 1 next season. (We'd get relegated but would go riiight back up again ;D)
In other words. My 13th birthday as a City fan.
