Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Wednesday 1st November 1972
City favourite Paul Dickov is born in Livingstone, Scotland. The striker, who became famed for ‘that’ goal at Wembley in 1999, first joined the club from Arsenal in August 1996. He was the final signing of Alan Ball’s time at the club, as the manager departed later that same month. Dickov subsequently established himself in a struggling City side and in 1998, was a part of the first side in the club’s history to be relegated to the third tier of English football. His goal in City’s first leg of the play-off semi-final with Wigan set the Blues on their way to Wembley, where they met Gillingham in the final and it was his last gasp equaliser in that game that changed the course of City’s history.
