Looking back at events, moments and games on this day in our history...

Thursday 29 October 1998

Andy Morrison arrives at Maine Road on loan from Huddersfield Town.

A natural leader, Morrison joins at a crucial time with City’s hopes of promotion looking slim, following a tough start to life in Division Two.


Manager Joe Royle initially signs the strapping centre-half on loan but the impact he has is so great that the deal quickly becomes permanent.

He is soon made captain and starts with three goals in his first four games, including a spectacular volley in a 3–0 win at Oldham.

Saturday 29 October 2011

City maintain a five-point lead atop the Premier League table with a hard-fought 3-1 win over Wolves.

Roberto Mancini’s men sail into a two-goal lead through Edin Dzeko and Aleks Kolarov but have to survive a nervy final 16 minutes with ten men, following Vincent Kompany’s red card.

The Belgian concedes a penalty, which is despatched by Stephen Hunt - but the home side wrap up the points in injury time.

Wednesday 29 October 2014

City are eliminated from the Capital One Cup after a disappointing home defeat to Newcastle United.

Goals in either half from Rolando Aarons and Moussa Sissoko send the Magpies through, on a thoroughly forgettable night at the Etihad Stadium.


Saturday 29 October 2016

City are at our scintillating best to thrash West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Two first-half goals from Sergio Aguero put the game beyond too much doubt – his first a lethal finish from close range after a wonderful through-ball from Ilkay Gundogan; his second a long-range bender that flies into the top corner and gives Ben Foster no chance.

Aguero turns provider late on, setting up Gundogan to score from inside the area, before the German bags his second with one minute remaining to seal a 4-0 rout.

Sunday 29 October 2017

Two goals in added time snatch a thrilling victory over Birmingham in the FA Women’s Super League, as City continue our 100% start to the season in dramatic fashion.

Jennifer Beattie heads home Megan Campbell’s monster throw-in to snatch all three points at the Academy Stadium, while Izzy Christiansen bags two from the spot, after Lucy Quinn had opened the scoring from 35 yards.

The game is turned in City’s favour when Birmingham captain Kerys Harrop is sent off moments after the home side’s leveller.

Monday 29 October 2018

Riyad Mahrez’s Wembley winner is enough to edge a tense and emotional encounter against Spurs.

The Algerian’s solitary strike clinches the points, as City return to the top of the Premier League table.

A seventh clean sheet in eight games is also key to the victory on a difficult playing surface that had been used to host an NFL game at the weekend.

Tuesday 29 October 2019

City cruise into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup with a 3-1 win over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.

First-half goals from Nicolas Otamendi and Aguero underline the hosts’ dominance, and skipper Kun adds a third after the break.

The Saints pull a late consolation back but the holders’ passage to the last eight is never in any real doubt.
