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.
