Book Description

10 Jan 2003
2003 is Manchester City’s 80th and final year at Maine Road. Award-winning photographer and lifelong City supporter, Kevin Cummins, has spent the last year documenting this historic event, enjoying the dramatic highs and suffering the heartbreaking lows that come hand in hand with a true fan’s devotion to his team.

With unprecedented access on pitch and behind the scenes, We’re Not Really Here is a truly original insight into a Premiership club and its supporters.

The honesty of Cummins’ photographs and his ability to capture the humanity of his subjects makes We’re Not Really Here both a social document and a fan’s keepsake. Players and supporters from across the Premiership are pictured, as much a part of the atmosphere of any vibrant stadium as the home fans and team themselves.

On 11th May Manchester City played their last Premiership game at Maine Road. When the final whistle went an era ended for MCFC. Thanks to Kevin Cummins Maine Road will live on in more than just memories.

Book Review
We're not really here
Kevin Cummins

Wow! As Kevin Keegan says on the back: The best and
most intimate portrayal of an individual football club
ever produced. I bought this book on Sunday at the
Reebok City shop at the City of Manchester Stadium. It's
absolutely incredible. I've been looking at it in all
my spare time since then. We sat in the pub on Sunday
evening looking through it. The combination of alcohol
and this book is a potent mixture that guarantees a
few tears.
The pictures are beautiful. The way they are used in
the book is superb. There is a page of nine pictures
from the derby of absolute mayhem. Next to it are two
beautiful bored looking girls wondering if anyone is
ever going to come down to their stall to buy a pie.
The photos of the Gene Kelly look like something from
an old fairground. There's some fabulous photos of
fans, with and without tattoos. There's a great one of
a guy nursing his can of Stella and another one of a
fan proudly showing off his City logo on his phone
screen whilst his mate looks at him pityingly.
Great match action in the way I've never seen a match
photographed. Great pictures of Maine Road showing the
old signs and the jumble of styles that made it such a
warm place to be. Puddles everywhere. There's an
absolutely stunning set of pictures of Marc-Vivien Foe
with Sylvain Distin that make you realise how much
the players must have loved him and how he'll be
missed.
All the photos are in rich colours almost as if they
are challenging your senses to remember if in life
everthing was so vivid.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.

despite this book not being avialable via Amazon yet I got mine at the new superstore last week - so it is out.

All the photos are in rich colours almost as if they are challenging your senses to remember if in life everthing was so vivid. . Anyone who went to the game on Sunday will have realised that there is nothing there to remind us of Maine Road.
