One for the historians
If not cov, Ever?
Yeah, it happened last week, Wycombe’s left back Joe Jacobson. Not sure about Cov
Not while they were at the club, but both Staunton and Gillespie have scored hat-tricks. Both for Liverpool. Staunton from the bench.
And Aden Flint scored a hat trick few years back for Bristol City in their 8-2 win over Walsall. He actually scored 15 that season which is amazing, if anyone’s bored has a defender ever scored more than that in a single season?
Ronnie Farmer got a hat trick in a 5-1 victory over Crystal Palace, two where penalties was Ronnie strictly a defender though in those days he was a half back and would be classed more of a defender than attacker. I also remember Bobby McDonald getting two v Villa and denied a hat trick by Andy Gray who made an incredible goal line clearance then proceeded to go up the other end and bag Villa’s winner... fecking arsehole
In recent times, the nearest for us was Fankaty Dabo... only deprived because the ref played 5 mins of injury time!!!
Brian Borrows got two v Liverpool that time.
Dublin got a couple of Hat tricks and he sometimes played centre back.
Steve Bruce got 19 in all comps during the 1990/91 season for United. Would kill for that from a Cov striker in recent years
Killer used to take Pens-wonder if it was him?

Goalkeeper Jose Chilavert scored a hat-trick in a league game in Argentina, all 3 were penalties although he was fairly good with free kicks too
I am sure Alvin Martin did for West Ham, but I can’t think of any an city players in my time of watching. It’s not like we have been blessed with lots of forwards getting them.
Ndlovu v Liverpool
Gibson v Liverpool
Are the first two I thought of
He was definitely a defender. In those days we had five attackers, usually Rees, Machin, Hudson, Hale and Humphries.
Farmer scored every penalty he took for us except one and that hit the post.
He always side-footed the ball along the ground into the corner just inside the post.
I think I saw Ronnie last week at St Andrews and when we passed the said play up sky blues to my boys. I used to play football with his son Matt
Beat me to it!
I think Elliot Ward missed about 19 penalties for us one season.... or maybe it just seemed like that many.
About time these WMP thugs were brought to book :claping hands:
4-1 win over Villa and they only showed Dions goal against us - gutted!!
Who was the Arsehole who threw that bottle of Coke when Tudgay scored? It covered my 8 year old lad and really distressed him. We travel up from...
THERE is still the opportunity to book £10 seats on coaches to Coventry as part of TrustSTFC’s #5kToCoventry campaign on Saturday, March 19.
My view of Bury at home - a disaster in timing.
