JORGE BERRIO vs MANCHESTER CITY, 1980
Man City played in Memphis on May 17, 1980. The game ended in a 1-1 tie with Ossie Vazquez scoring the Rogues lone goal. Man City won the shootout and the game 2-1. The interesting side note to this game was that Malcolm Allison, the Rogues first coach, was the Manchester City manager. Allison was fired about six weeks before the Rogues first game in 1978 for not having assembled a team. The owners became impatient and sacked him.
