More About the Author

Gary James has been researching and writing about Manchester football since the mid-1980s. He has written several landmark publications and a variety of articles on the region's games, clubs, players and personalities. In recent years he has written for publications as diverse as the FA Cup final programme, The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, The Times, The Author, When Saturday Comes, The Manchester Evening News and the match programmes of both Manchester United and Manchester City.

His first book was published in 1989, with his highly acclaimed Football With A Smile: The authorised biography of Joe Mercer, OBE coming in 1993 (updated and revised in 2010). His other works include: Manchester - A Football History, Manchester The City Years, The Big Book Of City, Farewell To Maine Road, Atkinson For England, and The Pride of Manchester.

Gary cares deeply about the history of football and feels that the role of all of the Manchester region clubs has rarely been given the attention it deserves. As part of his research he has interviewed players, fans, broadcasters, journalists and other figures from many different aspects of the game. He has been a regular contributor to the Manchester City match programme since 1994, and is now recognised as a leading expert on Mancunian football history. In 2003 he set up City's award winning museum & tour and in 2012 he provided curatorial assistance during the development of the new National Football Museum.

Product Description


"Manchester City: The Complete Record" is the official record of the Blues since their formation as the St Mark's Church side in 1880. Written by well-known author and lifelong Blue Gary James, this book is a product of over two decades of research. The story of Manchester City, from its beginnings in the 19th century to the present day, is told in the first section, which is followed by the history of City's three major venues, pen pictures of over 120 of the Club's biggest names, and manager profiles. In addition, the full season-by-season record of every first team League and cup game the Blues have contested is documented. Summaries, records and statistics, including the individual playing records of every first team player, complete the picture. "The Complete Record" is illustrated throughout with pictures, many rare, drawn from the archives of the Club's award-winning museum and tour, the "Manchester City Experience", as well as those of collectors and the local media.
