On this day: De Jong scores... finally
Looking back at events on this day - good or bad - on this day in our history....

Sunday 1 May 2011

In his 93rd appearance for City, popular Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong finally scores his first goal for City.

De Jong struck a ball from outside the box that somehow found its way through several bodies and into the corner of the West Ham net – the goal almost lifted the roof off the City of Manchester Stadium and the Blues go on to win 2-1.

CITY+ - Free to Cityzens until football resumes

Saturday 1 May 2010

City recover from a goal down to beat Aston Villa 3-1 at the Etihad.

Carlos Tevez levels on 41 minutes from the penalty spot and Emmanuel Adebayor scores again two minutes later to send Roberto Mancini’s side in 2-1 up at the break. Craig Bellamy scores a third in the last minute to secure a 3-1 victory.

Saturday 1 May 2004

Paulo Wanchope scores a vital second-half winner against Newcastle which moves Kevin Keegan’s men six points clear of the drop zone.

After two promising seasons back in the Premier League, City had become embroiled in a relegation dog-fight, primarily with Leeds. City finally managed to pull clear and all-but guarantee safety with a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

Leeds' 4-1 loss to Bolton the following day confirmed City’s top-flight status barring a 30-goal and six-point swing in the final two fixtures!
