Allison’s Dismal Derby

On this day (10th February) in 1979…

Attendance: 46,151; City 0 United 3

Malcolm Allison’s bold prediction of how great City’s victory will be is ridiculed as the Blues are heavily defeated by a Steve Coppell inspired United.  City are a well-beaten side while United win at a canter with Andy Ritchie comfortably netting the third twenty minutes from time.
