Six decades of Cardiff City v Birmingham City matches.

CoymayLast quiz of the season, with the answers to be posted on here tomorrow.

60s. This man left Birmingham in the early months of this decade, having maintained a scoring rate of better than one in every four matches in almost one hundred appearances for the Blues. Apparently, his departure from St Andrews was hastened by his oversleeping and missing the plane for one of Birmingham’s matches in the old Inter Cities Fairs Cup, but he was there on time for two Semi Final ties against Barcelona – can you name him?

70s. We never scored a goal in the three matches we played against Birmingham during this decade with this man in our team, but he got his fair share for us during his time at City. who is he?

90s. Something a bit different for this question (I won’t believe anyone who says they did not do any Googling with this question!), what links this player (who turned out for us against Birmingham during this decade)
