This is How it Feels to be City. Supporting Manchester City Updated for 2012/2013 Season
Will is frequently asked why he supports Manchester City. Raised in Devon, no connections to Manchester, no parental pressure certainly not a glory hunter. So why? This is a story of a fan's passion for his club. Updated to include the 2012/13 season.
This book captures the dramas and the emotion of Manchester City's victories and losses, as witnessed through the eyes of two lifelong City fans, 40 something Will and nephew Martyn, 17 years his junior.
Feel their hopes, fears, nerves, disappointment, resignation, exultation and final relief. Forty-four years since their last top league title, City were crowned champions of England in 2012 for only the 3rd time in their history,
In 1999 they won a far less coveted trophy awarded for winning the Division Two promotion play-off final and thus propelling the club back up to the heights of English football s 2nd tier.
Without City's 99 victory, it is highly likely that 2012 triumph would never have happened. Modern City may be light years away from the humble outfit of just over a decade ago, but parallels can and are drawn between the two sides.
About the Author
Will likes to think that City choose you. It was not until 1975 that a real liking for football developed. Inspired by his Dad's beloved Hammers blowing victory bubbles at Wembley, Will subconsciously decided to take a proper interest.
A few days later, the TV showed another live game, this time the Home International between England and Scotland. The home side thrashed the Scots 5-1, including a wonderful strike by Colin Bell of.......... Manchester City.
The marriage was consummated. That was it, City til he died!
