On March 18, 1980, the Duke basketball program announced the hiring of Mike Krzyzewski, the man who would restore glory to the team. The only problem: no one knew who Krzyzewski was. Nine days later, Jim Valvano was hired by North Carolina State to be their new head coach. The hiring didn't raise as many eyebrows, but the two new coaches had a similar goal: to unseat North Carolina's Dean Smith as the king of college basketball. And just like that, the most sensational competitive decade in history was about to unfold. In the skillful hands of John Feinstein, The Legends Club captures an era in American sport and culture, documenting the inside view of a decade of absolutely incredible competition. Feinstein pulls back the curtain on the recruiting wars, the intensely personal competition that wasn't always friendly, the enormous pressure and national stakes, and the battle for the very soul of college basketball.

IN 120 years more than 800 players have turned out in the colours of Manchester City Football Club or the club's earlier guises. Of these many have earned legendary status. This book lists a personal choice of 100 of these legends (one of them never even kicked a ball) who the author thinks warrants the description. Not intended as a complete biographical dictionary, it will hopefully stimulate discussion among supporters and bring back memories of former players and former glories. Names such as Meredith, Browell and Cookson from the early days may not be too familiar to the younger supporter; likewise Swift, Cowan, Doherty and prolific goalscorer Johnson from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. In the 1950s Blues fans witnessed the efforts of Messrs Trautmann, Barnes, Clarke and Paul. The late 1960s and early 1970s brought Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison together and their combined efforts provided the wonderful triumvirate of Lee, Bell and Summerbee (not to mention Book, Young and Doyle) along with superb enjoyment and entertainment to Maine Road. In more recent times Kinkladze, Bishop, Weaver and Goater have all earned the right to be included in the club's Hall of Legends.
