Seneca the Younger

What's your most iconic/favourite City photo of all time

Recommended Posts

These 2. First is me in my Umbro shirt from all those years ago and the other is the boy in the Cottage a couple of years ago.

We go whenever we can and together have seen all of the most recent highlights.

Having him with me makes it all the more worthwhile. Win or lose.

And although he hasn’t seen it yet he now has both home and away Umbro shirts to hang on his wall. Along with all the other “football shit” that my current wife calls it 😂

I know this sounds stupid but how do I send you a personal email with my email address? Don’t really want to ask my stroppy kids for help 😁

I think when city beat leeds in the cup in the 70s, a city player was the first footballer to be pictured in one of the posher newspapers that didnt cover sport.

Yes - the Gillies goal was the first football photo on the front page of the Times. I still have a copy!

Images that give me goosebumps even after so many years.

Shame that Football Gods helped Hull in the final chapter of that fantastic season, instead of us...

My favourite is the one of Marcelo Bielsa head bowed, whilst Lee Johnson is running down the touchline. In the distance, Leeds defenders are on their knees, and Antoine Semenyo is being mobbed by his teammates in front of a joyous South Stand...

Yep! This all day long for me. Such an amazing day. Already represents a ‘by gone era’ to me as well - going to the football was so so different - even then - and that day encapsulates that for me. Helps that we won of course!  

The day had everything. Arriving at Cardiff central to be greated by hundreds of Cardiff fans trying to get at us being held back by OB. Sent straight to first great western pub. Decent sing song while Cardiff fans trying to get in! The escort to the ground. Never seen anything like it! Surrounded by police with men, women and even children coming out of there houses to shout abuse at us haha! Then even going 1-0 down made the day imo! The place was going absolutely crazy fair play was a cracking atmosphere! Then them thinking they’d scored a 2nd only it to roll across the line and come out!! Then that crazy 7-9 minutes! I know we ended up bottling promotion but that 9 minutes will live with me forever! That away end was going absolutely mental! They were stunned into silence! Then the escort back to station 😀

 

WHAT A DAY!!!

Couldn't agree more - that's the most blatant dive and simulation  by a player I have seen!

Someone had to stop him RR.

He was never going to take off anyway, running along with arms out-stretched while singing  'I Believe I Can Fly'  wouldn't have worked, the bloke had clearly lost it, GJ was just being cruel to be kind!  

 

(ps .. I doubt if even their four armed substitute goalkeeper (see pic) could have stopped him tbh if GJ hadn't done such a good job.)

Agreed. Was one of my favourite players. He had it all for a midfielder apart from fitness and probably dedication/determination to reach the top

A lot of the pictures on here have shown Happy times and rightly so however, I find this picture truly iconic. It's a stark reminder that it's not just the fans who are affected when things go wrong.

This for me. In the brief period of time Steve Coppell was our manager, he used this photo on the back of the shop catalogue. The kid just so happens to be me. We asked for a signed copy from the team for keepsake but by then, Coppell was gone and so was the flyer.

To be fair, 0% interest is also how I have felt at various points as a City fan.
