Some Blues fans have been reminiscing about a certain player after the club celebrated the anniversary of his signing.
He may not go down in folklore the same way that someone like Trevor Francis has for the club, but judging by the reaction of people on social media, he’ll certainly go down in history in other ways.
Yesterday marked the 18-year anniversary of when the Blues signed Ivorian midfielder Olivier Tebily from Celtic. Tebily didn’t score a single goal for the Blues, but that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t able to make an impact on the supporters.
What would you rather happen to finish the season?
Games behind closed doors, finish ASAP
Wait until fans are allowed into grounds
When the club’s Twitter account asked fans for their favourite memory of the Ivorian, there was one memory that stuck out above all others for the Bluenoses, and that was his tackle without his boot on during the playoff semi-final against Millwall back in 2002.
Tackle without his boot on in the play offs at Millwall away. BEAST!

Doesn’t even need his boots on to win a tackle 👊🏻👊🏻

Anything other than him flying into a tackle without his boot on is the wrong answer!

Please show his barefoot tackle at Millwall in the playoff semi final.

What was the match he lost his boots but carried on playing and tackling without them?

I know that was the obvious one, but do you have any more memories of Tebily?
