For those old enough to remember the goalkeeping calamity, Andy Woodman from Terry Cooper’s final season with us, check out his interview on Under the Cosh:

Really funny guy and he starts telling his tale from his time with us at about 32 minutes in.

I was at both games when he got sent off. Really really dark times as a City fan!

Is he still Gareth Southgate's best mate?

I remember a game in the Football League Trophy on a Tuesday night when he was in goal in front of the the new (sparsely populated) Big Bank. I think it must have been versus Brentford? He got so much stick and fell apart.

I've never seen a keeper so affected by the crowd. I was at a full Hillsborough in November 1998 and David Beckham must have taken five or six corners yards in front of us and got dogs abuse and stuff chucked at him yet didn't seem to affect him. A few hundred in the Bank (which in those days was miles from the pitch) and Woodman went to pieces.

He went to pieces every time he came back and played at The Big Bank end.

Totally useless for us. I still can see that game now. We were desperate to progress in the Cup and out of nowhere that clown produces the sort of mistake he should still be having nightmares about..... Our supporters are pretty easy going with ex players but he was different. Booed every time and probably would be now. Trust me if you are too young to remember etc. and didn’t see it or the second time he was sent off. Was it the next game?! He was shocking.

I think the last time he played at SJP was September 2004. We won 2-0 through Gaia and Flack.
