But at least this time they will not have to face one of the most colourful characters in the history of the FA Cup – a barmy hypnotist named Romark.

Manchester City fans of a certain vintage may be forgiven a cold shudder when they contemplate the prospect of Saturday night’s trip to the Newport mudheap.



The Blues face the South Wales minnows this weekend in front of the TV cameras, on a pitch that – on the old FA Cup vernacular – is something of a “leveller”.



The game will bring back unhappy memories for Blues supporters of the time when they last lost an FA Cup tie to a team from three divisions below, after the Shaymen recruited a vengeful hypnotist.

This man not only helped Halifax Town pull off the giant-killing of the Blues in 1980, he also had a rib-tickling encounter with Muhammad Ali, and a more painful one with the back of a police van.

You will play the greatest game of your life, John Smith.

Romark also had a hilarious encounter with the legendary Muhammad Ali, when the Greatest was defending his world heavyweight title against Bradford slugger Richard Dunn, in Munich.
