Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Tuesday 6th August 1991
At £2.5m, Wimbledon defender Keith Curle signs for City and becomes the most expensive British defender yet. Curle, a quick-thinking and speedy centre-half is purchased by manager Peter Reid and soon joined by Wimbledon full-back Terry Phelan as the Blues purchase half of the Dons’ back four. Curle will go on to become a big crowd favourite at Maine Road as well as taking on the captain’s armband.
