Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Monday 13th February 1978
Dennis Tueart quits England and City to join North American Soccer League giants New York Cosmos for £250,000 and play alongside the likes of Pele and Franz Beckenbauer for a year during an unforgettable time in the Big Apple, though he re-signs for City on 31st January 1980.
Saturday 13 February 2010
City meet Stoke City in the fifth round of the FA Cup and hold the Potters to a draw at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Shaun Wright-Phillips gave City the lead after 11 minutes when he arrived first onto an incisive through ball from Stephen Ireland and chipped over the advancing Thomas Sorenson.
The Blues held the lead until the 56th minute when Ricardo Fuller met a trademark long throw-in from Rory Delap with a simple headed finish.
That’s how it stayed but when the sides met again on 24 February, Stoke booked their place in round six with a 3-1 win.
