These questions- and much else beside- are answered in this unique and utterly different take on City history, secret history and City today. Beginning with an offbeat look at the club song-and its hidden meaning, it goes on to analyse how Abu Dhabi United Group transformed the club. It examines the reign of maestro Roberto Mancini, confronts the clash between his football philosophy and that of the ' Barca Boys', uses little-known info on Manuel Pellegrini to portray him as a unique coach in football history and describes the Lamborghini football with which he reclaimed the Premiership crown.
Then there are in depth, warts and all portraits of every member of City's 2013-14 title-winning squad and nitty-gritty accounts of all the vital clashes bringing these alive as real-life dramas and revealing what was actually said between players and players and players and referees- sometimes in very blunt language !
Aimed first and foremost at true blue City supporters, there's still much to interest and intrigue thinking football followers regardless of club allegiance.
