About the book
Fine Margins is the definitive story of how two mainstays of English football took their feuding on to the game's biggest stages.
The rivalry between Manchester City and Liverpool is synonymous with the Premier League, but its roots stretch much further. For over half a century, these two clubs from opposite ends of the M62 have been perennial thorns in each other's side.
Countless managers, players and directors have continued what started in the 1960s and continues well into the present day as Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp battle it out in the domestic and European game.
Never before heard anecdotes about the rivalry are shared in Fine Margins through exclusive interviews from some of the most revered players from both clubs including Ian Callaghan, the late Glyn Pardoe, Alan Kennedy, Paul Power, Emile Heskey and Sylvain Distin.
This is a journey which takes you from Denis Law to behind closed doors and forged the ultimate footballing rivalry, on and off the pitch.
