If I have learned anything writing for Bleacher Report, it is that tomorrow matters more than today, and much more than yesterday.
The vast majority of the content and analysis we produce is forward-thinking, because the match that just ended is over and you probably watched it anyway. It is far more interesting to talk about what might happen than what did happen.
This is why, in my side line as a Featured Columnist for the Philadelphia Phillies here, it matters much more that I know who Maikel Franco is than that I remember who Julio Franco was.
My Manchester City knowledge base is relatively deep and narrow. I know more than I ever thought I might about the current side. But if you ask me who City's centre-back was in 1974, I will need Google to help me find that answer. And so what? When was the last time you needed to know that, anyway?
Still, I welcomed a challenge like this. As with my earlier effort to identify City's 10 greatest players, the process of information gathering necessary to put something like this together is enlightening.
And in the spirit of now being more important than yesterday, these moments will be brought to you in chronological order.
