Manchester City Folklore is the latest book by Gary and provides features on all aspects of City’s long and illustrious history. Based on decades of research but written in an easy to read and popular style City Folklore provides a series of features on the club. It reveals an incredible array of stories, true blue moments and characters that helped shape the club. This is City’s DNA, researched and mapped by acclaimed City historian Gary James.
It includes the latest research into MCFC’s origins – as told by a witness there in the 1870s and 1880s; features on City changes, including an anthem based on a 1960s film; the stories of City’s kits and significance of certain colours; the story of the Kippax and Maine Road’s other legendary stands; highlights the club’s greatest ever players, captains and managers; articles on the loyalty of City’s support and much more.
It is the perfect book to dip into and read something interesting on the Blues. It can also be used to show to non-City fans and those who talk of the Blues in negative terms that Manchester City has a long, successful and important history. Gary has tackled some of the criticisms of recent years. This book could help you win arguments with rival fans and prove to them why City have always been a major club.
