This beautifully written book gets to the heart and soul of Manchester City FC, one of the Premier League's modern juggernauts and a club steeped in a proud history. The book takes readers through City's formative years, explains why the rivalry with United became so strong, how the Citizens became known as 'Manchester's club' and moved into Maine Road in 1923. Fans are taken through the glory days of Summerbee, Bell, Lee and Tueart in the 60s and 70s, into the dark days of relegation in the late 90s and the miraculous revival under Kevin Keegan. David Clayton is City's official journalist and writes with inside knowledge of the boardroom intrigues as the club is taken over by Thailand's Prime Minister and then by the Abu Dhabi Group to become one of the wealthiest clubs in the world.
