Think there was lots of 1st division games off that day and that's why we were on.

No doubt it'll be Byron Websters fault the games were off.

."The pitch in perfect condition" says Motty, just shows how far we've come since then, parts of it look like an old tatty field.

Just watched it again and it looks to me Aguero has modelled his game on Mally Poskett.

Enjoyed that, only ever seen the goals before, first time I’ve seen the full highlights.

Carlisle looked atrocious in the first few bits of footage but once they scored looked really good, City couldn’t deal with them second half. Good to see an honest game, there weren’t any bad tackles but there were a few meaty ones yet nobody batted an eyelid, there’d be a few bookings dished out these days. The foul on Clive Wilson was a deffo pen though!

Why wasn’t Paul Simpson playing for City? He was there in the mid-80s. Remember Jim Melrose getting his jaw broken by a Chris Kamara elbow and suing him in court around that times, one of those random things you remember.

Excellent, many thanks for uploading that, I've waited 35 years to see it again!

Great to see some decent footage of those players, standout performance from Mally Poskett that day, unplayable!

And a chance to see Gwyn Thomas (Barnsley) v Scott McGarvey (Pompey) in a game played on snow straight afterwards. In the words of Ron Manager. Marvellous.

Fantastic highlights from Maine Road, with Bish's by far the best.
Special mention for Mick McCarthy's barnet mind.
How good did Mally Poskett play that day.

Brilliant that even though I was there I’d forgotten a lot about the day, love the old classic songs especially us singing 2-1 at them :-)

That was a nice way to finish a cold snowy February day – very enjoyable with a cold beer. I had that on video and I think I nearly wore the tape out. I’d forgotten the BBC ‘stopwatch’ timer as well.

Nice to see two simple strips without all the endless badges, names and sponsors on the butt etc. although the shorts were rather … err short.

Also nice to see short sleeve shirts in the freezing cold with no sweat shirts underneath, tights, gloves … and as for the waved away penalty shout!

Mally Poskett was unplayable and Ashurst and Oriordan didn’t half get stuck in.

Good to see Mick McCarthy with a nasty injury the dirty bar steward that he was!

Jackie Ashurst and Don o Riordon both would be in my all time 11 favourite team

Be just and fear not

Haigh and Rushbury were decent full backs as well. McAughtrie was the weak link in that defence.

I was at that Man U game. Two terrible defensive mistakes but the goal of the game from Rafferty.
Used to really rate Phil Bonnyman.

Every team needs a Mick Tait especially in those days
Had a hell of a long career well over 700 games

Proper football how it should be played

When a good tackle was one that put your opponent into row G

Where the hell did it all go wrong ?

The atmosphere on the Kippax that day up against the fence could be described as a lot more than electric

Just watching again it was McAughtrie who knacked McCarthy with a late tackle, just inside the penalty area too!

I was there that day. It was one of my favourite away days, but not much of a journey for me as I was living in Manchester that year. I was there with my brother and a friend.

There was some pretty vile racist chanting from some of the Carlisle fans, but I can't remember whether it came before or after the Manchester City fans started throwing coins, chains, fruit and anything else they could. I wasn't looking forward to leaving the ground, but after the third goal, I think a lot of the home support just gave up and went home.

As for the match itself, after that early goal by Manchester City, to go on to play as we did, was something special. And then to find that it was the main match on Match of the Day just added to it being such a good day. I phoned my dad and got him to record it. I thought I still had the recording, transferred to DVD, but haven't been able to find it, so I'm chuffed to be able to see it again.
