A Man City fan once wrote a book called 'Manchester United Ruined My Life'. These days, thanks to a large injection of Middle Eastern moolah, the blue side is setting about ruining United's life with some gusto.
Not that the 'noisy neighbours' hadn't tasted glory before their 2008 takeover. They'd won the league and three FA Cups before their first golden age in the late sixties when they won the lot domestically and added the Cup Winners' Cup as well.
And now it looks like the second golden age is upon us. They're suddenly one of the world's wealthiest clubs and their side (and our stock) reflects that – Aguero, Silva, Kompany, Toure, Hart among many other world class players.
But City's proud, and at times cult, history is also reflected in our 100% authentic high quality boots, prints, shirts, gloves and armbands hand-signed by the likes of Goater, Rosler, Hutchison, Lee, Book, Summerbee and even the legend that was Bert Trautmann.
