Book Description

Nov 1999
"City 'til I die" is the story of the most important and remarkable day in the recent history of Manchester City Football Club as described by the people who have loved the 'Blues' longest and most passionately. The tumultuous events surrounding the 1999 play-off final against Gillingham unfold through the quotes, photographs and memorabilia of fans, long serving players and even the club's laundry girls, Janet and Joyce. Stories range from those of a father and son reunited at the game after years estranged, to the memories of Richard Edghill, City's final penalty taker. Each quote has a page designed around it featuring elements as diverse as Joe Royle's actual team sheet for the game to a 'Roy of the Rovers' style illustration of Paul Dickov's equalising goal.

From the Author

May 30th 1999 was one of the most extraordinary days of my life. This book is my attempt to capture the emotion of that afternoon and in the process create something that one day in the future will help explain to my son why I'm "City 'til I die".

5.0 out of 5 stars Wembley '99 revisited 29 Nov 2001
Format:Paperback
This is an absolutely fantastic recollection of memories and experiences from that glorious day in May 1999, when The Blues came back from the brink (and not only in the game) of the precipice to gain promotion back to Division One. Having been at the game I can relate to most of the feeling expressed within the book and it will always be a reminder of my feelings that day. Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for every true City supporter 21 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sums up one great afternoon in May 1999, when the decline of the only football club to come from Manchester was reversed. After years of disaster, finally something to cheer about. The book follows different accounts of the play-off final, with touching accounts of experiences and memories from that day. A book that every true City fan can relate to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Football-fan-tastic!! 21 Dec 1999

Format:Paperback
Brilliant book! An absolute must for any Man City fan who experienced that wonderful day at Wembley - a cheap (but not at all nasty!) Christmas stocking filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving, touching and joyous. 30 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'm not a Manchester City fan, but reading some of the writing in this book had the hairs on the back of my neck sticking up, and my eyes filling with tears. If you're a United follower, though, don't bother reading it. You simply won't understand this book. It's about being a helpless, devoted, TRUE fan.
