Product description


The end of the 1964-65 season saw Manchester City 11th in Division Two. Then they appointed Joe Mercer, former England, Everton and Arsenal wing-half. Mercer needed a younger man on the training pitch and he chose Malcolm Allison, the former West Ham defender whose own playing career ended when he lost a lung to TB. No-one in their wildest dreams could imagine the success the pair would bring to Maine Road. Within 12 months City had won the Second Division title. Two years later they were League Champions and by 1971 had added the FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup-winners' Cup. And for good measure they had at last overcome the always looming shadow of Manchester United.
