Here at the Tavern we are on Christmas campaign to recommend what we believe to be the perfect gifts for footy fans. And we are convinced that The Pocket Book of Man City is the essential book for all fans of one of the most famous Premiership clubs.
Learn about City’s glorious history, from the very first team back in 1880, to the 1956 FA Cup winners, to the European Cup-Winners Cup heroes of 1970.
Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 10-1 thrashing of Huddersfield in 1987 or the incredible 2004 FA Cup comeback against Tottenham. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it Book and Lee, Goater and Summerbee, or current heroes Tevez and Wright-Phillips.
Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Man City memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget Georgi Kinkladze’s weaving run against Southampton in 1996?), legendary managers and tactics of the club’s most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years – yes, that includes the AC Milan look of 1969.
On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of Eastlands, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite Colin Bell.
