Six questions about an opponent we’ve not played too often in the last six decades – answers will be posted on here tomorrow.

60s. Name this member of a City team to play Villa during this decade – he enjoyed his best moment for us against another European Cup winning team.

70s. As far as I can tell, only one City keeper saved a penalty in a game against Villa during this decade, who was it?

80s. Two members of the Aston Villa 1982 European Cup winning squad to identify – who are they?

Answers.

60s. Brian Edgley, who scored his only goal for us in a 3-0 win over Manchester United in November 1960.

70s. Frank Parsons.

80s. Gary Williams who played at left back in the Final and future City player Pat Heard who was a substitute.

90s. Ivo Stas scored an own goal while playing for Banik Ostrava against Villa in the UEFA Cup in October 1990. Manager at the time, Jozef Venglos signed him a month later but he never got to play a first team game during an injury ravaged spell at Villa Park.

00s. Jonathan Hogg, who was in the Huddersfield team which City beat last week.

10s. Ron Vlaar.
