Looking back through the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City's history...
Neil Young scored twice as City beat Arsenal 3-2 at Maine Road.
The forward would go on to play a big role in City's successes of the late 1960s and early 1970s, but he was just getting started when he bagged this brace against the Gunners.
Young, then aged just 17, had only made his senior debut for the Blues in the previous November but these goals helped demonstrate how he had already taken to life in Division One.
Three of City's all-time favourites were on the scoresheet in a 3-0 win over Sheffield United that earned another two points in that season's title-winning campaign.
Mike Doyle, Colin Bell and Francis Lee helped ease gave a vintage Blues side to a comfortable victory over the Pennines at Bramall Lane.
David White decided a tight encounter at Maine Road as the Blues beat Coventry City 1-0.
The winger was in a good run of goal-scoring form, and he helped give City a much-needed boost after the third round FA Cup tie against Millwall had ended in defeat after going to two replays.
City came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road.
Paulo Wanchope levelled the scores after half an hour, just four minutes after Tommy Smith had put the Hornets ahead.
Kevin Keegan's side left it late to claim all three points of this Division One encounter, which came courtesy of a Heidar Helguson own goal.
