Corradi’s first

On this day (18 November) in 2006 two goals from Corradi (12th & 32nd mins) and Barton (45th min) helped Manchester City to a 3-1 victory over Fulham. The first Corradi goal was his first for the club and resulted in him celebrating by going over to the South Stand corner, picking up the corner flag and knighting the other players as you can see in this video clip:

Historic Name That Ground – Week 27 Answer

It’s Christmas Eve but we’ve unfinished business… Did you recognise this ground? On Monday I asked: ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above? This is a 1920s photo of this ground. There are at least 3 identifiable features visible on this photo that are still visible today PLUS the neighbouring streets. I don’t want to give much away but this has been a Premier League ground and is still used by the same club today that played here in the 20s.’ Well, the answer is…

Fulham’s Craven Cottage. The 3 identifiable landmarks are: the River Thames, the Fulham main stand and the cottage in the corner next to the stand. The housing and streets look very similar today.

There will be another ground to identify on Monday. As this is the last ground quiz before Christmas, I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and I hope it gives everyone what they want. Have a great day and don’t forget to come back on Monday for the next ground.

I had planned to run ‘Historic Name That Ground’ only during the close season as in previous years, but it’s proving of interest so I’ll keep it going for a little while yet. If you have an old image of a ground that you think it’d be worth including in this weekly quiz then please get in touch. They don’t have to be from the 1900s to 1960s – even ground images from the 70s and 80s may prove a challenge to identify these days. You can email me at gary@GJFootballArchive.com Thanks.
