Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Saturday 28th February 1976
Goals from Peter Barnes and an unforgettable overhead kick by Dennis Tueart give City their first trophy for six years after beating Newcastle United 2-1 in the League Cup Final at Wembley. It is Tony Book’s first – and only – trophy under his tenure as City boss, though few realise it will be 35 years before the Club wins silverware again.
Monday 28th February 2005
City stage a brilliant fight-back from two goals down to secure a 3-2 victory over Norwich City with a last-minute winner from Robbie Fowler – the 200th league goal of his career. The game is perhaps best remembered, however, for Delia Smith’s infamous ‘Let’s be having you!’ rant at half-time.
