Book Summary

In 2012, 44 years of agonised waiting came to an end with Manchester City winning the Premier League title. The millions of pounds they spent on world superstars kept the media at the Etihad doorstep on a daily basis, but it paid off handsomely with championships and cup successes. It is only a few years since City's loyal fans were riding on the wildest roller-coaster in English football, with so many ups and downs that they hardly knew in which division they were competing. But, the fans kept coming back for more, and now they are reaping the rewards. This incredible journey is all recorded in The Little Book of Man City, a selection of the wit and wisdom of the great characters who have been associated with the club. From managers, such as Malcolm Allison, Kevin Keegan, Roberto Mancini Manuel Pellegrin, via garrulous fans such as Radio 1's Mark and Lard and the Gallagher brothers to voluble players such as Francis Lee, Dennis Tueart, Rodney Marsh, Carlos Tevez and Vincent Kompany, here are more than 180 funny and biting quotes for the avid fan of "the only club in Manchester". As their chaplain once said, "Imagine where City would be if I hadn't been praying for them all these years."
