THE CITY GROUND'S STATISTICS

My favorite page. I love finding these statistics and they've all been derived from the City Ground database.
Some (like Wembley appearances, top goalscorers etc.) are obvious, but others (who scored on their birthday, which teams have knocked us out of cups and have we visited every ground in the league) are much more interesting. Let me know if there are any more good stats I can develop...
