Manchester City

A proud club with a rich history, Manchester City were the team to beat in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The management duo of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison took City from mid-table anonymity in the Second Division to champions of England and they did it in style. Based around the huge talents of Mike Summerbee, Colin Bell and Francis Lee, City were entertainers as well as winners. With first the takeover of the club by Thaksin Shinawatra in 2007 and then the buyout by an Abu Dhabi-based consortium in September 2008, City can now lay claim to being one of the richest clubs in the world. Since that day in September being a City fan has become even more of a rollercoaster ride than usual. Whatever the future holds for Manchester City, any new Blues side will be judged against the greats of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
