In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
We've played all these teams in friendlies, I think. (Certainly Arsenal in the 60s and Man City in the 90s). It's competitive fixtures that we've not had with them.
Arsenal played a midweek game to inaugurate the upgraded floodlights in 1964(can’t image a top flight team bothering these days)..Man City came down for Steve Neville’s Testimonial in 1990 or 91.

Yes I think Alan Ball brought Man City to SJP in mid-90s too. Part of the Buster Phillips deal?

Is that in the Football League only ?...I can think of a few in our Conference years.
We're certainly unbeaten against FGR in the Football League (and FA Cup). Think they must have beaten us in the Conf.

Maybe Fleetwood too

Yeah, you're right with Fleetwood and FGR in the league (though we've definitely lost to the latter in the Conference). I thought perhaps Boston Utd., but I think they beat us 0-2 at home in our relegation season. I can't think of any other FL teams though.

Off the top of my head, I think we were unbeaten against Stafford Rangers, Leigh RMI and Droylsden in our Conference days. I'm sure there must be a few others.

We played Arsenal in an inauguration game for the new, old, old, old floodlights around 1963/64!

The Arsenal match was played on the 2nd December 1964 , I still have the programme somewhere and can remember where I stood for the game but nothing about it . I think you will find that in the Arsenal team that night also was Don Howe , George Eastham , George Armstrong and Terry Neill , they certainly sent a very strong line up .
