This is Manchester City’s golden age. City have a long history of success from being FA Cup winners in 1904 through the stars of the thirties who won league and cup, the Revie Plan cup winners of the fifties and into the halcyon era when Colin Bell, Francis Lee and Mike Summerbee brought five different trophies to the club in the space of five years beginning in the late sixties, but in the last decade City have emerged as the dominant force of the era.
In 2021 City seem set to storm to their fifth Premier League title since 2012. In the last 11 years they have also won seven domestic cups as well as the Community Shield three times with a clean sweep of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup in 2019. Rather than resting on their laurels sights are now set on quadruples and European glory for the first time since 1970.

Pace and fluidity of movement characterise City’s style and this A to Z gift book gives you an at a glance guide to the story of the most glamourous club of the twenties.
