Fans are taken through the glory days of Summerbee, Bell, Lee and Tueart in the 60s and 70s and into the dark days of relegation in the late 90s and the miraculous revival under Kevin Keegan.David Clayton is City's official journalist and he writes with inside knowledge on the board room intrigues as the club is taken over by Thailand's Prime Minister and then by the Abu Dhabi Group to become one of the wealthiest clubs in the World, winning the 2012 Premier League title while playing at a sold out state of the art new Stadium every week.

Manchester United:The Biography will do for the football team what Peter Ackroyd did for London in his huge biog of the same name. The book follows the club's extraordinary journey from its birth in the railway works of Newton Heath to its current status as Premier League and European champions. The key stages in United's history will, of course, be covered: the Munich Air Crash of 1958, which saw the best part of an entire team (the Busby Babes) being killed; becoming the first English team to win the European Cup in 1968 (with Bobby Charlton and George Best); the dominance of the club in the Premiership; the controversial sale to American tycoon Malcolm Glazer, right up to Moscow 2008. But by drawing on the recollections of everyone from players and managers to fans and backroom staff, Jim has unearthed enough new material to interest die-hard fans and casual supporters alike. A fascinating history of a remarkable football club, by one of Britain's best-known and most popular sports writers.

Carlos Tevez is one of the Premier League's most lethal finishers, loved by Manchester United and Argentina fans alike, and respected by many more in the world of soccer. After completing a protracted and controversial move to Manchester from West Ham in August 2007, Tevez quickly established himself as a fans' favorite as he developed a deadly partnership with Wayne Rooney up front. During his first season with the club he scored an incredible 19 goals, which were instrumental in sealing the Reds' Premier League and Champions League Double in 2008. In his second season at United he has added the Club World Cup and League Cup to his trophy haul, scoring his first United hat trick in the process against Blackburn Rovers. And it isn't just United fans who hold Tevez in great esteem—he still commands a special place in the hearts of West Ham supporters after he scored an incredible winner against Manchester United on the last day of the 2006/7 season, which ensured West Ham's top-flight survival. Thanks to his stints at Boca juniors and Brazilian side Corinthians at the start of his career, he is also a popular figure across South America. On the international stage, he scored a phenomenal eight goals to seal gold medal victory for Argentina at the 2004 Olympic Games, and is a regular in the Argentina side.

Excerpt from A Biography of Thomas Deacon, the Manchester Non-Juror It is not a very simple matter to decide as to the arrangement of a book on a subject such as this, and after considerable deliberation I have decided to arrange the work in the following manner The events of Deacon's life down to the year 1720 will be related in chronological order. The years 1720 to 1745, for information as to which we are indebted almost entirely to John Byrom's Private Journal and Literary Remains, will be treated on a different basis, designed with the purpose of showing Deacon's relations in various aspects of life. After the '45 it will be found more convenient to resume the chronological order of events, but the sources of information during this period are of a very complicated character. The controversy of 1746 - 8, which culminated in the publication of Manchester Vindicated in 1749, is not easy to disentangle, but we are indebted to the writers in this controversy for a considerable amount of information concerning Thomas Deacon's earlier as well as later life. I have thought it well to prepare a special appendix in which I have quoted from these writers, at some length, various passages which are of interest to our subject. The advantage of this course will be that a more homogeneous story can be related in the text, which would otherwise be over-burdened by quotations in which the events of the '15 and the '45 are described in a confused manner.
