Back in May 2006 City were chasing the game when he brought reserve keeper Nicky Weaver onto the pitch as a substitute goalie to replace David James who promptly went upfront.
If it had been a spontaneous act then fair enough …. just but the bench had an outfield shirt with James name & number already on it.
Surely this was a pre match plan from Psycho?
I do wonder if the substitute strikers on the bench had a crisis of confidence after that scenario?
David’s take on the events …..
“I wasn’t knackered because it wasn’t only 10 minutes but yeah I booted just about every player on their side and I think I was fortunate not to get sent off.
It was a good experience, though, I enjoyed it.
But do fancy myself as a bit of a striker?
No, to compare me to someone like Michael Owen would be simply ridiculous.
I’ll just stick to going up for corners in the last minute if we need a goal, although I think heading in last-minute winner would be harboring a little too much of a dream.”
