Home eBooks Nonfiction Bristol City: It spans the era from John Atyeo to Alan Dicks. Atyeo was the club's record-breaker for both appearances and goals. Dicks was the manager who arrived as a virtual unknown, bided his time, and then dragged City back to the top division of the Football League for the first time in 65 years.

But this is an absorbing tale of tribulation as well as triumph. Of relegations besides promotions, leading to a headlong descent into the Fourth Division and the club's last-ditch escape from financial catastrophe and oblivion. Read how Atyeo devoted his career to Bristol City, and of his rise to England caps. Of the manager dismissed for not spending money on new players.

Of another manager brought down by his ill-fated dealings in the transfer market. And of the club's record victory, a penalty-kick bet, and the man known as 'Bristol's Mr Football'. This is a vivid account of one of the most dramatic periods in Bristol City's long and chequered history. In this series View all. Ratings and Reviews 0 0 star ratings 0 reviews.
