John Salako for Swansea at Ashton Gate 1989. Beat us 3-1 and Salako tore our defence a new one.

 

This is always my first answer

He was incredible that afternoon

For us oldies...... Kevin Mabbutt hat-trick at Old Trafford? Not many City players are likely to ever do that.

Or Joe Royle scoring four against Middlesbrough at AG. 

For even older oldies - John Atyeo scoring 4 second half goals away to Shrewsbury. In more recent times, Evander Sno playing for Ajax against City in a friendly. I couldn’t believe it when City signed  him, but unfortunately it didn’t work out. Or, Dave Smith the lightning winger playing for Gillingham against City. I met him in hospitality after the match and told him he should sign for City. He did at the end of the season so he was obviously impressed by my football expertise

Glad Smudger is being mentioned already. That game he had for Gillingham, wow!

I would also like to add to this list Liam Walsh's second half performance against Stoke City. Brought on as a sub at half time and then he ran the show. It was a privilege to have been there, especially as I'd flown over from Norn Iron for that game!

My first ever game watching City, don't remember a thing about it though

We played the day before away to West Brom, And managers moan now about not enough rest! Actually I remember the West Brom game we got absolutely battered yet won the game. Tinman Scored I think.

I went to both those, and think you're right that Tinnion got the winner at the Hawthorns.

Think that Forest team were the last team you wanted to face with less than 24 hours rest.

Freddy Eastwood?

Correct, was going to mention him, scored a couple of screamers that day iirc. Also remember Assombalonga ripping us a new one at AG whilst he was at P'boro.

Ray Cashley away to West Brom. Cashleys Last Stand!

Joe Royle home to Middlesbrough. 4 goals, didn't score for another 19 matches!

If I remember that game correctly, it was an evening game and Cash was beaten all ends up....once. The ball flew past him on the way to the net and Sweeney was running back behind Cash....looking directly at the goal. The fierce drive I think from Tony Brown) whacked Sween on the ass and the flew over the bar. Sween knew absolutely nothing about it until the ball hit him. You know it's your night when...….

Keith Welch against Sunderland when Soren Anderson scored a last minute winner. Sunderland should of been 10-0 up and I remember Carl Shutt scoring four in a night game against Fulham in the late 80's.

Leon Britton for Swansea often gets mentioned in these discussions.

I’m sure he got subbed late on and the whole ground applauded?

Was just about to say Leon Britton he was absolutely outstanding, I’m pretty sure nugent played up front for them in the same game and he was a right handful.

Stolen straight from the BBC's daily attempt at entertaining football supporters during this lockdown period, whats the best individual performance you have ever witnessed either for or against City?

Stan Collymore for Forest at Ashton gate, he ripped us apart.

I think he scored 2 or 3, we just couldn’t cope with him.

Colin Cramb.  Reserves against the Gas reserves.  6-0.  He scored all 6.  I lived on Cumberland Road at the time.  Was supposed to be writing a report from home, but by good fortune sneaked to AG.

Reserve games are fun to watch but not necessarily a good judge of talent. David Seal scored 4 goals in a trial reserve match and was promptly signed. Although he had some good days he didn’t make it as a first team player. He found his level playing for Mangotsfield where he was prolific

Evander Sno is an obvious one for me, along with JET playing for Doncaster. Ones that haven’t been mentioned so far would be Kevin Doyle for Reading & Kevin Phillips for West Brom, both gave a master class of forward play. COYR

Louis Carey away at Forest live on Sky one Bank Holiday. We won 1-0 (Chris Wood penalty) and he was awesome, a real captain`s performance and he ended up being interviewed pitchside covered in blood a la Terry Butcher.

Aden Flint away at Brighton when we pissed on their parade.

whatever year it was, I was in with the away section for some reason I can't recall - the closest I've come to torture that was

A couple of gasheads revealed their quarters that day in the away end, the Forest fans applauded them, did you see that?!

This. Phonominal.

Zaha for palace around 2011/12 and assombalonga when we played for Peterborough 

This again. Incredible. Zaha was such a special player. He was like Real Madrid ready.

Also Kyle Walker when on loan at QPR from Spurs 2010/11. How could a right back run the show, he was everywhere.

Gareth Bale when he was 15/16 against us in a friendly. The kid (at the time) looked like he was on another planet; went off injured and saw his face as he walked down the Atyeo and thought **** ME THIS KID HAS BEEN DOING US PROPER!
