Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Saturday, 16 August 1975
The Blues began the new season confidently with a 3-0 win over Norwich City at Maine Road, though the 29,103 attendance was a concern for the club.
Two goals from Dennis Tueart and another from Colin Bell saw off the Canaries but the 1975/76 league campaign was one of frustration for the Blues.
