This Manchester City shirt will make you want to get out of bed and hug Paul Dickov

Some Manchester City shirts will remind you of players.  Like the round neck “Colin Bell” shirt or the 1994 Kinkladze kit.  Others will remind you of moments and this 1998-99 Manchester City away shirt does just that.

1998 Manchester City away L £64.99 (20% off this weekend)

It was worn by Manchester City in the 1998-99 League 2 play offs as they played Gillingham.  Gillingham were winning 2-0 as the game went into injury time but then Kevin Horlock and Paul Dickov scored to take the match extra time and penalties.

Here’s how Aaron Flanaghan remembered the match.

The goal was chosen by Aaron Flanaghan as his favourite

My favourite goal was actually in the match I state above at Wembley. My Dad was fortunate enough to have got tickets in the very top tier (effectively a royal and VIP gallery at the top of Wembley) behind the goal. While looking down and out of the game, even after Kevin Horlock scored his 91st minute goal, City still needed another to progress. In comes Paul Dickov, who fires a shot into the roof of the net. It was absolute chaos at the top of Wembley Stadium.

And to this day he remembers his group hug

The one thing I remember about the goal was the massive group hug that all of the supporters around us had as the goal went in. Without that goal, I truly believe that Manchester City would not be where they are today.
