Anichebe.  Used to throw Ciaran Clark about like a rag doll.  Was shite for the other 36 games a season.

Oh God yes, it was like Rocky verses Thunderlips, without Rocky's body shots.

John Filan the goalie always seemed to have a blinder against us.

Yes, he did, apart from when Savo stuck three past him v. Cov!

My main memory of him is playing Blackburn at home 97/98. On the way to the game, 10 year old me told my Dad and his mate that we'd win because John Filan was playing in goal, Flowers must have been injured. We lost 4-0.

Might be my memory playing tricks on me but as a youngster I seem to recall Tony Cottee scoring against us quite a lot.

I'm pretty sure Neil Sullivan played a blinder at Villa Park on what was his league debut as a youngster at Wimbledon. Hans Segars  used to enjoy playing at Villa Park too. Mind you, the whole f**king Wimbledon team did for a while.

All the man city players were like that in those days. Barton and Distin were two that always seemed untouchable against us.

There really must be a Man City thing, stretching even further back than that. David White turned into the best player in the world against us at Villa Park in the Dr Jo season. The season before Peter Reid, who was closer to forty than thirty at the time played a blinder to derail our title bid. I think he even scored, which in his career he only used to do every couple of years on average.

He did indeed score - a David White run and shot (Maradona style as per) that crashed off the post into the path of Reid in front the jubilant Citeh fans with their 'Imre' Bananas.

The only other ludicrous thing about the game is that West Ham failure Mark Ward scored the other goal for them.

I always seem to recall Darius Vassell ended up at Man Citeh and somehow managed to score against us virtually every time we played them!
