Thirty years ago, while researching for my biography of Joe Mercer, I interviewed Malcolm Allison in his flat at Yarm. Starting on Wednesday 17th March I will be serialising the interview over five days for subscribers to this site.
In the interview Malcolm talks about meeting Joe Mercer for the first time; joining Manchester City; the relationship with Joe; the signing the players; the major successes; the set-up of Manchester City at the time and much more.
Here’s a brief section of audio from our chat:
Obviously, this was recorded on an old cassette recorder so, at times, the quality is not the best, but I’m sure you’ll agree that this exclusive interview is worth listening to. To hear the entire interview please subscribe and from Wednesday the interview will be posted a section at a time over five days (it’s over 1 hour in total).
While you’re here I’d like to thank you for taking the time and trouble to visit my website. I have been researching and writing about Manchester football for a long time (no wonder I’m going grey!) with my first book published in 1989. I am not employed by anyone and I do not have sponsorship either and so I’ve set up this website to help share my 32 years plus writing and research. The intention is to develop the archive and to provide access to as much of my material as possible over the coming weeks, months & years. Subscribers can already access over 280 articles/posts including the entire Manchester A Football History book and an audio interview with former City boss John Bond I performed in 1995.
It costs £20 a year (it works out £1.67 a month) or £3 if you’d like to sign up a month at a time to get full access for as long as you subscribe (see below). Thanks for the support, Gary.
