I’m sure it gets boring to some but for those of us there that day the drama and the emotion can never be forgotten. Here’s my own personal film of the moment the final whistle went on that incredible day when MCFC won the Premier League title in 2012.
I know the camera’s all over the place (I was jumping up and down like everybody else) and the sound isn’t great but I hope it helps to show what it was like to all those who couldn’t be there that day.

Many goals over the years are described as the greatest ever by a City player. Sometimes these become a talking point for a few days, sometimes for a few years but unless they happen to occur in a major trophy winning game goals tend to lose their significance as time moves on. This is especially true for games prior to the 1990s when television coverage was limited to, at best, a handful of top flight games.
The idea of this piece today is to highlight a spectacular goal from the 1970s that has slipped from the minds of many.
The goal featured here is Rodney Marsh’s overhead kick from the City-QPR Division One game of September 1974.
