Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.

Saturday 18th March 1933

The Blues returned to the last four of the FA Cup having lost to Arsenal at the same stage the previous year and Wilf Wild’s team were more determined than ever to make it to the final. Wild had fashioned a side capable of ecstatic highs or demoralising lows – if ever a season when the words ‘typical City’ were first said, this was it! The game against the Rams proved to be exciting and ebbed and flowed and the 51,961 crowd lapped it up. Goals from Ernie Toseland, Fred Tilson and Jimmy McMullan proved enough to send City through by a scoreline of 3-2, though they would lose 3-0 to Everton in the final.
