101 MANCHESTER CITY MATCHWORN SHIRTS brings the memories flooding back from City’s rollercoaster past as Mark McCarthy explores the story behind every shirt. Recall the players who pulled on these iconic blue shirts and a dazzling array of second colours. The unforgettable matches at Maine Road, the Etihad, Wembley – and away in the Football League Second Division. Every different style, every sponsor and shade of blue brings to mind an era, a manager, an association with seasons in the sun or endless hopeful optimism.
Plucked from the world’s greatest matchworn City collection, here is Colin Bell’s shirt from the 1967/68 title winning season.

Shaun Goater’s 1999 Wembley Play-off stripes. Phil Foden starring in the Champions’ League. David Silva. Joe Corrigan. David White… and 93 more.
