MANCHESTER CITY   1968/69
      European Cup
     
   

Manchester City qualified for the European Cup following their League Championship success in 1967/68. Immediately after winning the title City assistant boss Malcolm Allison said "We'll terrify the cowards of Europe."  Inevitably therefore they lost their first-ever European tie against the unfashionable Turkish champions.
