This coincides with the paperback launch of his acclaimed book Richer than God: Manchester City, Modern Football and Growing Up, published last year and now perhaps more relevant than ever for all fans of the beautiful game. At a time of turbulence and change for most Premiership teams and possible bankruptcy for many of those in the lower leagues, David explores what's going on, questioning the very nature of football clubs and being a supporter. From the battlegrounds of the 1980s to today's moneyed, seated, global entertainment, he will examine the underlying values and running of what used to be called 'the people's game'.
David, who is originally from Prestwich, writes for the Guardian and was 2010 Sports News Reporter of the Year. He has been three times named Football Writer of the Year by the Football Supporters' Federation. He'll be appearing at the Manchester Jewish Museum, 190 Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester M8 8LW, this Thursday 23 May at 7.30pm. Tickets FREE with museum admission (£3.95/£2.95 concessions) available in advance on 0161 834 9879.
9.30-11.45am, Saturday 25 May, Prestwich Library.
