The author did not just focus on the glamour of Manchester City and United but also the other teams in the Manchester area. What I especially enjoyed about the book was hoW the author did not just concentrate on the glory side but also commented on such things as the Bury and Coventry scandal of the 1920s. As football gets further and further removed from what enticed me all those years ago, books like this help me see beyond the commericially hyped sanitised game that professional football has become.
