Apologies if this has already the subject of a thread, however I have just been looking at the thread about the shortest player to have appeared for City.
LLL mentions Nicky Jennings & for some reason whenever I think of him I always remember the game v Halifax Town, then managed by Alan Ball Snr, I think.
Their defence simply took turns in hacking him down, with no attempt whatesoever to play the ball.
For me, they are the dirtiest team I have seen at the park. What is the dirtiest side you have seen ?

Just like the old days...
:D When I saw the title of the thread , I was going to post about that Halifax side!

They finished the game with 9, in an era when you had to decapitate someone to get even a yellow.

I remember Chris Fears commentary vividly... finished 2-0 iirc..

Indeed..My thoughts entirely...As you say it was unusual to see a dismissal in those days,so 2 in a game was rare...

I seeem to recall a 1-0 win with Alan Beer scoring..I have not got my Rothmans at hand,..

I'm with LLL, on this. My memory, for what it's worth, was that we won 2 - 0. But I can't remember the scorers.
