Crowd Idols by David Clayton

Book Description

"Crowd Idols" profiles the 50 most popular footballers to have played for Manchester City over the past 40 years, including Georgi Kinkladze, Ian Bishop, Colin Bell, Dennis Tueart, Clive Allen, Colin Hendry, Tony Coleman, Rodney Marsh, Ali Benarbia, Eyal Berkovic, Joe Corrigan, Tommy Hutchison and Shaun Wright-Phillips. Listed in reverse chronological order, a potted history of each player will feature alongside ratings for best goal, most memorable on-field moment, personalised terrace chants, monetary values at career peak and much more. "Crowd Idols" humorously sums up just why these 50 players were so popular with supporters and, in some cases, why some proved so unpopular with their managers. In a controversial twist, the author also lists the ten ultimate Manchester City anti-heroes, naming and shaming the players that City fans were least fond of, and outlines the reasons behind their failure to win the hearts of the supporters. Hilarious and informative in equal parts, "Crowd Idols" will spark plenty of debate amongst Blues fans and provide a nostalgic reminder of the star players to have worn the blue-and-white of Manchester City Football Club.
