Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been issued to McManaman for the Premier League match against Middlesbrough, played at the City of Manchester Stadium on 15th May 2005.  This design although used predominantly the following season did feature ohe final day of the Citizens 2004-05 campaign when manager Stuart Pearce threw one last dice to to seal UEFA Cup qualification. A close game ended 1-1 after Kiki Musampa cancelled out Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's opener. The most memorable moment of the match is undoubtedly Pearce's decision to play goalkeeper David James up front despite having £5 million striker Jon Macken sitting waiting on the bench. McManaman was an unused substitute for this fixture, the former Liverpool man made 13 appearances in all competitions for the Sky Blues this season helping them to an 8th place finish in the Premiership. The former England international called time on a long and illustrious career at the end of this season.
