Personalised Manchester City Football Book - Gift Details

Whether you’re buying for a seasoned spectator or a would-be Rooney, the Manchester City Football Book will go down a storm.

Our tabloid-sized Manchester City Football Book features reprints of original reports from the Daily Mirror, starting in the early 20th century and concluding at the end of last season. Basically, it’s a history of your chosen club. What’s more, it can be personalised with a certificate on the inside front cover and gold embossed on the front. A properly brilliant football gift for footie fans everywhere.

Beginning in 1904 with the club’s FA Cup win over Bolton, this Manchester City Football Book provides a comprehensive account of the Blues’ biggest moments up to the end of last season.

Despite FA Cup wins in 1904 and 1934, and a First Division title in 1937, City’s heyday came in the 1960s and early 1970s. It was in this era that they won another League Championship, a further FA Cup, the League Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup under the management team of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. Star players included Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee and Francis Lee, all of whom feature – through reprints of original newspaper reports – in this book. And as you’d expect, every other promotion campaign, as well as the recent Premier League seasons are also covered in depth.

All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.

Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.

Enjoy a Newspaper History of the Blues

Manchester City FC was founded in 1880 as St. Mark’s West Gorton. The Blues won the FA Cup in 1904 and 1934. They went on to clinch the First Division title for the first time in 1937, having already twice finished as runners-up in the league. Don Revie was a key player in Man City’s third FA Cup win in 1956. The team used tactics inspired by the Hungarian national football team, as they had terrorised England in previous fixtures. Manchester City faced Birmingham City in the final and eventually won 3-1.

Joe Mercer took over as manager in the 1960s and built on Manchester City’s success. The Blues won a second top flight title in 1968 and a fourth FA Cup trophy one year later. A League Cup victory and European Cup Winners’ Cup triumph followed in 1970 and Manchester City won a second League Cup in 1976. This would be the final major trophy for over thirty years, as the Blues’ form began to stutter and they struggled to keep up with the teams around them. In 2008, a takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group created headlines around the world. Manchester City instantly became one of the richest football teams in Europe and the club began to build a side capable of winning the Premiership.

Some of the top stories in this personalised Manchester City Book include winning promotion to Division One in 1910 and beating Sheffield Wednesday at the ‘new’ Moss Side ground in 1923. The Gift Books also feature the 3-0 win against Manchester United in 1926 to secure a place in the FA Cup final, and winning the competition in 1934, 1956 and 1969.
