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.

Synopsis

From its very first season in 1880, Manchester City Football Club has captured the hearts and minds of the local people of Manchester. 125 years on and the passion and grittiness of the club and its players continue to attract thousands of loyal fans week in, week out. Starting with the birth of Manchester City, the book includes lively stories and information surrounding the club's milestone seasons. From the FA Cup glory days of 1904 to the famous golden era of the late sixties and the current struggles and triumphs of City as we know it today, memories are brought to life through never-before published photographs from the archives of both the Manchester Evening News and Manchester City Football Club. Join Gary James, a life-long City fan and writer, as he celebrates the highs and lows of the club's 125-year history. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
