On April 28 in City history…
1934: City lift the FA Cup after a 2-1 victory over Portsmouth. The game was witnessed by over 93,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium and a brace from Fred Tilson was enough to clinch England’s most prestigious trophy for the Blues.
2007: City are beaten 2-0 at home by Aston Villa after Joey Barton misses a penalty. Despite being cheered on by over 40,000 fans, City were outclassed by the Midlands side, and the Blues’ form as the season grinded to a halt (0 wins the last 6 games) was a major concern going into the summer.
Happy Birthday: Earl Barrett (49)
