We have an exclusive copy of "Joe Mercer, OBE: Football With A Smile" to give away.
Written by well known City author Gary James, this acclaimed book covers the highs and lows of the life of Manchester City's most successful manager - from his birth in Ellesmere Port, right through to his struggle with Alzheimer's Disease and subsequent death in 1990.
Whilst at City, Joe created a side of true quality and skill, returning the glory days to Maine Road. A history of success the Blues are rightly proud of. During his time in Manchester the Blues won a major European trophy, the League Championship, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Second Division title within 5 years of his arrival. More importantly though, together with his right-hand man Malcolm Allison, he created a side that oozed class and entertained wherever they played.
