Kings of the Hill

A CITY+ exclusive...

To help celebrate Nicky Weaver's 44th birthday, enjoy the dramatic story of one the most memorable days in our recent history through the words of our former goalkeeper and his City colleagues as we rewind back to 2000...

In May 2000, City travelled the short distance north to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers.

The scenario was simple - a point would secure back-to-back promotions and a place back in the Premier League after an absence of four years.

Failure to win would likely allow Ipswich to sneak into the second automatic promotion berth... surely City couldn't miss this opportunity on the final day of the season?

Kings of the Hill tells the story of that memorable sunny day in May, through the eyes of supporters and players alike.

Joe Royle, Nicky Weaver, Shaun Goater and Paul Dickov all share their memories of the day City fans took over Ewood Park and the dramatic 90 minutes that followed.

The goals, the woodwork strikes, the pitch invasion and, of course, those gathered on the hill behind Ewood Park.

CITY+ is the place for all your exclusive documentaries with classics such as 'Kinkladze: The Magician of Maine Road', 'Ireland is Superman', 'The Sven Year' and many more.
