Thanks to Man Utd losing at bottom of table West Bromich Albion City are confirmed as Premier League Champions 2017-18. Many thanks to Jose, Man Utd players and fans for handing us the title this week.

Let the party begin, well deserved champions and Utd's glory beating us soon eroded.

Well done Pep and all the team.

Great stuff!  Excellent season with a one week blip that may take the glint off - but only slightly.  We've been head and shoulders above the rest and well deserved!!!

And 104 goals to break the goals record.  :D

Great achievement to dominate the league from the start and playing such attractive football.  :flagwaver:

Magnificent achievement - playing without doubt the finest football I have ever seen at City. A joy to watch!

Well done to Pep, our captain Vincent, and all the boys (with a special nod to David Silva). You were the best team in the league by a big, big margin!

  you missed a pun on Colin Bell there!

Hmmm, can you name any city player, past or present with a body part in it?

Or, if you'd prefer something relatively more recent - I give you (Mel Machin's first signing) - Tony Adcock

Based on all the previous contributions to this thread the 'rules' didn't seem all that strict!  ;D

Age caught up with me once - but I beat the living shit out of it...

Even so - I did delve far into the past for Willy Lot Jones.

Mildly surprised no one asked me about him? So you all know him?

Played about 300 games for City before World War One and scored 75 goals. Aside from the famous Billy Meredith, Willy Lot Jones is about the only other player I can always name straight off the cuff from City's early years - probably because it sounds a bit odd. Mind you, he was Welsh...

Tbc, there'll be loads' a names I couldn't roll off the tongue.
The oldest I can really remember stretches back to David White & Peter Reid. But Uwe  was my first city hero.
