Manchester City Books

Here is a selection of books for Manchester City fans.

Colin Bell - Reluctant Hero: The Autobiography of a Manchester City and England LegendColin Bell - Reluctant Hero: The Autobiography of a Manchester City and England Legend

If Manchester City legend Colin Bell were playing today, he'd be one of the most sought-after midfielders in the world and would command the wages of, and comparison to, the likes of Zidane, Ronaldinho or Ballack. Most Manchester City fans regard Bell as the club's best ever player. He graced the midfield during their greatest years, as they won the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup-Winners' Cup. The man they nicknamed 'Nijinsky', due to his supreme athleticism, captained Bury at the age of 17 and represented England 48 times before a serious knee injury effectively ended his career when he was just 29. Now, for the first time, 'King Colin' has opened up. He talks about his childhood in Hesleden, County Durham; about never knowing his mother, who died while he was a baby; and of being brought up by his aunt and then his father and older sister. He then leads us through the glory years, singles out his greatest opponents and compares the modern game with the era he dominated. In "Colin Bell - Reluctant Hero", Bell covers the many highs and lows of his career, including his views on the tackle in a Manchester derby that ended his footballing dreams and could even have cost him his life. There's humour, too, as he recalls a teammate who couldn't swim being carried shoulder high through the incoming tide on Blackpool beach, and the time he sent a fellow player to a hotel reception in his birthday suit. This candid and entertaining autobiography offers a unique insight into the world of a true legend who never actively sought fame. With tributes from the likes of Malcolm Allison, Sir Geoff Hurst and Sir Bobby Charlton, "Colin Bell - Reluctant Hero" is the life story of a footballer whose brilliance on the field demanded adulation but who was never comfortable in the spotlight, a player who truly preferred to let his feet do the talking.

Written by well-known author and lifelong Blue Gary James, this book is a product of over two decades of research. The story of Manchester City, from its beginnings in the 19th century to the present day, is told in the first section, which is followed by the history of City's three major venues, pen pictures of over 120 of the Club's biggest names, and manager profiles. In addition, the full season-by-season record of every first team League and cup game the Blues have contested is documented. Summaries, records and statistics, including the individual playing records of every first team player, complete the picture. "The Complete Record" is illustrated throughout with pictures, many rare, drawn from the archives of the Club's award-winning museum and tour, the "Manchester City Experience", as well as those of collectors and the local media.
