Manchester City has a long and proud history, whatever fans of other clubs may say, and the evidence are on the pages of this great book. Because Manchester City fans are keenly aware that other people keep trying to tell them that they have no history, they are noisy neighbours and are a small team.
When this book proves that the other club only became big in the late 1950s and that before that date Manchester City were and still are the Club for Manchester. Holding the attendance record for a domestic cup game, which was set in the 1920s still stands today, no other club has come close. Or that King George V was the first monarch to watch a domestic game, in 1920, between City and Liverpool at Hyde Road.
There are so many wonderful snippets in this book and is a must for all Manchester City fans.
