The 1996 season was not our best, and the period included some rather hilarious kit-designs for our players to wear. It was the year of tears as City were relegated from the Premiership. It was the year the ball was our Manager, not something to be put in the net. But it was also the year of Kinkladze, Rösler, and Quinn. It was the year of Kinkladze’s solo run against Southampton and it was the year Alan Ball made sure we were relegated by asking his players to waste time instead of scoring the goal we needed against Liverpool.

Watch a flashback of the action from 1996 in this Youtube video:
