City players went back to their childhood today...to prove they really are Sky Blues
City players went back to their childhood today...to prove they really are Sky Blues Babes. They posed for photographers wearing, wearing, wait for it...nappies and shower caps. And they seem to enjoy it! It was all part of a publicity scheme devised by City management, and manager Gordon Milne acted as "nanny" with a giant milk bottle for teenagers Steve Murcott, David Barnes, Danny Thomas, Steve Whitton, Gary Bannister, Andy Blair, Paul Dyson, Tom english, Gary Gillespie, Mark Hately and Garry Thompson. All except Barnes have first-team experience and was City's way of telling the national public they have a bright future.
