From Balti pies to the biggest prize : the transformation of Manchester City by Steve Mingle( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story so far. Manchester City end the 2003-04 season relieved at having narrowly escaped relegation. There have been highs and lows, but the lows have been desperate and the highs restricted to minor triumps of promotions and occasional derby wins. Meaningful silverware hasn't been delivered since 1976. Kevin Keegan looks like he's lost the will to live, let along manage City, and the transfer kitty is bare. Eight years later, they've won the Premier League in the final seconds of the most dramatic match in the history of football. From Balti Pies to The Biggest Prize relives the jour

Allison wonderland : mastermind of Maine Road's golden age by Steve Mingle( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Malcolm Allison. Inspiration and visionary, charistmatic and volatile, arrogant and outspoken. Truly larger than life. When he walked into Maine Road in July 1965, not even the most wildly optimistic City fan could have predicted the success which he and Joe Mercer would bring to the club. The 1970 European Cup Winners' Cup final delivered their fourth major trophy in three years, and the team hadn't even reached it peak. Years ahead of his time, Malcolm was the driving force behind the club's meteoric rise from downtrodden Second Division outfit to one of the most feared sides in Europe. And yet his burning desire for greater recognition was what ultimately brought the glory days to an end. Within eighteen months of being given the manager's position he'd so desperately craved, the club's fortunes had nosedived and a bitterly disenchanted Malcolm had walked away. Allison Wonderland captures the many facets of one of football's genuine legends, as well as charting the development and decline of his relationship with Joe Mercer. It brings back to life the excitement of City's greatest era: the glorious triumphs, the crushing disappointments, and the real story behind where it all went wrong. Some of it might even be true ..."--

Lows, high and balti pies : Manchester City ruined my diet by Steve Mingle( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lows, Highs and Balti Pies comprises vivid, colourful and highly individual recollections of City's most memorable games over the past 37 years. One hundred matches are featured, starting with a 5-2 drubbing of Sheffield United in 1967 and ending with the 4-1 triumph in the first derby at the cursed City of Manchester Stadium. Not all of the games in between provided quite as much pleasure. The book contains affectionate portraits of the City greats down the years, together with fortright appraisals on the rich assortment of blundering buffoons which the club has seen fit to inflict upon its famously loyal supporters. However, even when describing the club's darkest moments and teh individuals responsible for them, humour is never far away - be it biting, dry, self-deprecating or just plain daft. This approach capture perfectly the essence of what it is to be a City fan. The book also embraces diverse elements of popular culture over the period. Musical reference points abound, whilst the likes of Sid Waddell, Curly Watts, Ian Hislop, Tony the Tiger and Cyanide Sid Cooper all somehow find themselves featuring in the story. And how the hell did Albert Pierrepoint get in there? The games chosen generally present a balanced picture of the club's ups and downs over the years but - even in the interests of fair-mindedness - the author can't bring himself to include any of the numerous defeats suffered at the hands of Manchester United. After reading the book, you'll understand why. When it comes to United, we are not dealing with a fair-minded man. All long-term followers of football causes will be well familiar with the emotional peaks and troughs described so strikingly in this book. Most, like the author, will have experienced more troughs than peaks. But it's the range of imaginative, often scarcely credible, ways in which City have brought both
