Written by respected football journalist Andy Buckley, a lifelong City fan, this goldmine of information reveals all manner of facts, feats and stories from the proud history of the Premier League Champions. A rich source of quirky trivia, the book explains how City fans first came to adopt the inflatable banana, what happened when a group of them tried to hire a fishing trawler to make an away game, and reveals the cheeky request of a lucky mascot before a recent Manchester derby. In addition, it also tells the story of the player who had his tattoos removed before meeting royalty, reveals the club legend whose autobiography might have saved his life and celebrates the genius of Mario Balotelli in a special chapter containing some of the madcap Italian's most famous escapades. Alongside these meticulously researched entries are biographical sections on club heroes like Bert Trautmann, Denis Law, Mike Doyle and Sergio Aguero as well as detailed season-by-season records to satisfy even the most ardent of statisticians.
With its extensive array of facts, feats and anecdotes to chew over, this labour of love is the perfect Christmas present for the Man City fan in your life - young or old. Beautifully printed on imitation cloth.
