Bert Trautmann: Manchester City legend

Trautmann, who died in July, famously played on in the 1956 FA Cup Final despite suffering a broken neck and was one of the greatest goalkeepers of his era.

A former German prisoner of war, he made 545 appearances for City between 1949 and 1964.

Monday night's game at the Etihad Stadium will be dedicated to Trautmann and a wreath laying ceremony will take place at 7pm, attended by 24 members of his family.

The matchday programme will have a 16-page pull-out tribute and the first-team squad will warm up in shirts with 'Trautmann 1' on the back. The shirts will be auctioned and proceeds donated to the Trautmann Foundation.

There will also be a minute's applause before kick-off and players will wear black armbands during the match.

Manchester City v Newcastle is live on Monday Night Football, Sky Sports 1HD, 7pm

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
