One of the few City games I remember being at during that season.29th April 1972.
Not many games in Division One, due to a European Nations Cup(Euro’s) Q/F first leg game at Wembley against West Germany the next day. Quite unusual for the Football League under Alan Hardakers helm to be helpful to the FA & England team in those days.
The game ended in a 1-3 defeat, the first time a German National team had won on English soil.
The 2nd leg two weeks later in the Olympic Stadium West Berlin ended 0-0
