Neil's picture

Simon Curtis is a journalist and manchester City fan who has been following this contradictory football club for many years. In this book he chronicles the club's various failures and rare successes in European competition since 1969, and it was published on the eve of their ultimately successful campaign in 2023. It's a book for the super fan, not just the football super fan, but the City super fan. It's almost 500 pages of entertaining and amusing descriptions of disastrous hubris, descriptions of City's almost unique ability over many years of seizing defeat from the jaws of victory, until their more recent arrival into the elite of European clubs. If you're a City super fan, you'll enjoy this book a great deal!
