30th July 1966. For millions it was the greatest day of the greatest decade. They may never have seen the Beatles in the Cavern or danced at Woodstock, but they got to see the finest moment in English sporting history. Everything came together that sunny afternoon. The country was the centre of the world in fashion, film and music - so why shouldn't the World Cup be England's as well? This is the story of that extraordinary 24 hours, told through the eyes of the players, the fans on the terraces, and those watching and listening at home and abroad. Take the young policeman with the tricky task of swapping the real Jules Rimet trophy for a replica; the former German POW on holiday in Wales keeping his nationality secret as he watches the match in a stranger's house; and the Kent firecrew dousing a chimney fire as they watch the final on television. Full of fascinating details, this book evokes a period when football fans wore suits to matches, traffic policemen were invited into homes to watch the game, and the England squad could walk to the cinema undisturbed the evening before the biggest game of their lives.

Before the modern day onslaught of the internet, mobile phones, live streams and global connectivity, there was just football and newspapers and Gerald Sinstadt's curiously immobile moustache. In this book, the authors revisit some of Manchester City's most memorable matches and, layer by dramatic layer, give old classics the minute-by-minute treatment, allowing the reader to share the nerve-tingling build up of tension that those who were there on the day felt themselves. This beautifully written and exhaustively researched book follows the dramatic developments in ten all-time classic Manchester City matches - and not necessarily ones that ended well for the Blues. They are dealt with in And He's The Left Back Remember in intimate detail and in chronological order, giving the following chapters: 1980-81 Tottenham 3 City 2 - FA Cup Final replay 1982-83 City 0 Luton Town 1 - Division One 1987-88 City 10 Huddersfield Town 1 - Division Two 1988-89 City 5 Manchester United 1 - Division One 1995-96 City 2 Liverpool 2 - Premier League 1998-99 City 2 Gillingham 2 - Division Two Play-Off Final 2003-04 Tottenham 3 City 4 - FA Cup 4th round replay 2010-11 City 1 Manchester United 0 - FA Cup semi final 2011-12 Manchester United 1 City 6 - Premier League 2011-12 City 3 Queens Park Rangers 2 - Premier League The full range of human emotions, covered in ten enthralling contests that sum up the spirit and core of Manchester City Football Club.

The regeneration of east Manchester

East Manchester has been the site of one of the most substantial regeneration projects internationally. The initiative in east Manchester confirmed the tag that the city is the ‘regeneration capital’ of the United Kingdom. While the book focuses on a single project, it has wider relevance to national and international regeneration initiatives. The book assesses the outcomes of the regeneration, although it demonstrates the difficulties in producing a definitive evaluation. It has a political focus and illuminates and challenges many assumptions underpinning three major current academic debates: governance, participatory democracy and ideology. The book is relevant to students of politics, geography, sociology, public administration and recent history but will also interest practitioners, academics and general readers interested in urban regeneration. Mancunians will also be fascinated by the rapidly changing face and character of their city as will those with an interest in Manchester’s football, the Commonwealth Games and Sportcity.

"A very good book." Sven-Goran Eriksson "This book makes a convincing case that there are good lessons to be learned from the dugout." Management Today " We're not one to gossip, but which manager was spotted in a Monte Carlopool this week ploughing through The 90-Minute Manager only weeks after getting his club relegated? And why, exactly, was he there with Fabien Barthez and international playboy Dave "Barry" Bassett?" The Guardian's Fiver email Football is the setting for one of the purest forms of management - and the most transparent. In an age when club football is more of a business than ever before, suddenly it seems business is getting more and more like football: when talent is at a premium, the ability to attract and retain the very best people - and get the most out of them individually and collectively - is of paramount importance. What better time to learn the lessons from the very best - and worst - of the ultimate man management game. In this book, Brady and Bolchover take each of the key areas of management today, and see what we can learn from football league managers of all levels, their style and methodology. From Shankley to Wenger, from Clough to Mourinho, through Keegan, Venables, Fergusonand O'Neill, strengths and weaknesses are examined to answer classic modern management questions, such as: - what are the best strategies for dealing with brilliant but erratic people? - does the best manger have to be both a great strategist and an inspirational motivator? - what will make top talent want to work for you? - what makes a great manager on a shoestring? - what are the advantages of home grown versus imported talent? - how important is the 'right-hand' man and what qualities make the very best pairing? - should a team ever be built around a single outstanding individual? Now in its 3rd edition, The 90 Minute Manager is the ultimate read for pleasure, read for work book and publishes in the midst of the football fever of World Cup 2006.
