Documentary: The Ballet on Ice | Maine Road 100

As part of our coverage of ‘Maine Road 100’, check out this brilliant City Studios documentary, which revisits an iconic match from Manchester City's history.

City and Tottenham Hotspur - two of the finest teams in England - went head-to-head in a decisive clash at Maine Road back in 1967 which would later be dubbed 'The Ballet on Ice'.

With Malcolm Allison at the helm and including the likes of Colin Bell, Francis Lee and Mike Summerbee, the hosts ran out 4-1 winners thanks to a majestic display despite the treacherous conditions.

All 35,792 that day saw a City side at their brilliant best, only months before we would be crowned First Division champions.

In this feature, we interview Mike Summerbee and Alan Oakes, Spurs' Cliff Jones as well as childhood fan and former journalist Chris Bailey.


Current City midfielder and grandson of both Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe, Tommy Doyle, also marvels at the quality of the football played in those circumstances.

It's a must-watch for any City supporter.
