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

Tuesday 9th October 1984

City’s 4-2 first leg League Cup win over Blackpool meant the second leg was more comfortable than it might have been. The game still attracted a healthy 10,966 fans to Bloomfield Road but the majority of them left disappointed after two Jim Tolmie goals and a Gordon Smith effort gave Billy McNeill’s side a 3-1 win and a 7-3 aggregate victory overall.
