"Tim's light style had me eagerly turning the pages of his books, smiling in recognition at his stories of City games and laughing at the humour of its anecdotes."
"One day Tim's volumes will be invaluable sources for historians of the club: just imagine if we had this kind of fans-eye account of attending City matches in the 1890s or 1920s."
KING OF THE KIPPAX.
"Started the book on Boxing Day, finished it the day after. Absolutely loved it!"
"I too went to Pips and Placemate every Friday and Saturday. Loved the bits about the Electric Circus and Rafters."
"Both my husband and I are lifelong Blues and have shared many of the memories captured so brilliantly. The book is excellent."
"A fan's story of supporting City during the 60s and 70s. A typically Mancunian story of following the Blues during a glorious era on the pitch."
THE BLUE BOOKSHELF. MCFC PROGRAMME.
My name is Tim Keogh. I am the author of two books "Nothing but blue skies" (2009) and "This was our City" (2013). The former is about a childhood and adolescence growing up in North Manchester in the 1960s and 1970s spent chiefly watching Manchester City around the country. It also charts my forays into the burgeoning Punk Rock scene in the clubs and dives of the Rainy City. "This Was Our City" follows the slide of Man City into obscurity in the 1980s whilst I set out on my journey into adulthood and the world of teaching in Thatcher's Britain. The bleak grey industrial landscape of a decaying city is punctured by the rise of The Smiths and occasional highlights on a Saturday afternoon visit to Maine Road.
