The book is a shocking tale of bar brawls, drunkenness and disaster. Brought up on a tough Plymouth council estate, one of Morrison's brothers ended up doing time for manslaughter, another died of a heroin overdose.

"I tackled hard, shouted and encouraged, and gave every drop of sweat for the shirt," he said. "I never tried to be something I wasn't and to be appreciated for being me was a great feeling and the fillip I needed for my recovery."

supporters blithely discussing whether they should go for the Champions League or concentrate on winning the Premier League.

And in his jaw dropping autobiography, The Good, the Mad and the Ugly, Morrison is as brutal with himself as he ever was with opposing strikers, or with wannabe hard cases who fancied a rumble in the street.

But City fans love him with a passion, because he was the perfect man for an imperfect moment in the club's history.

How Morrison himself avoided a similar fate, even he doesn't know.

When he arrived at Maine Road on loan, the Blues were languishing in the second division, seemingly on a downward spiral towards oblivion, having just lost 1 0 at home to Reading.

How right he was. On his debut against Colchester, Morrison thundered into an early tackle, scored a header, picked up three stitches in a shin wound and was named man of the match.

"I could sense these were blokes who loved their club but had had enough of having their noses rubbed in it by that lot across the road," he said.

He was the man who manager Joe Royle said had dragged the team 'kicking and screaming' from the dark depths of Division Two.

They implored him to 'get it sorted' and Morrison responded.

Assistant manager Willie Donachie gave Morrison a journeyman player who had briefly flirted with stardom at Kenny Dalglish's Blackburn a pep talk, and said he could be a much needed hero for the City fans.

"They were saying 'Enough's enough, let's get this thing going again'. It brought home to me just what a responsibility the rest of the lads and I had. I had never experienced anything like that before.

"One thing I did instil in the dressing room was the removal of the blame culture. I didn't want any negativity; no moaning, no complaining.

They needed someone to pick them up by the scruff of the neck, something in which Morrison specialised, both metaphorically and physically, and the fans needed someone who could make them believe Nike Crewneck Womens again.

Not getting on with Huddersfield boss Peter Jackson, he had picked up the manager's desk and smashed it, along with Jackson and his chair, into the nearest wall.

"The first thing that struck me about City was how quiet the dressing room was, and how down everyone was," said Morrison in the book.

You could go as far to say that if it hadn't been for Morrison, City might not be where they are today, packed to the rafters with world class talent, and with Nike Hoodie Grey

He was a good footballer as well as an uncompromising competitor and he couldn't quite hack it at the top level, perhaps dogged by a lack of pace.

Before long, he was named captain, and his task was made plain by a group of five City fans who approached his car as he sat on a side street behind the Kippax.

But whenever the history of Manchester City is written or debated, no one can deny the part Andy Morrison played, in just 37 league games for the Blues.

"Everyone, that is, apart from Kevin Horlock, who greeted me with 'Christ, things must be desperate if we've brought you in'. He said it with a smile, and the ice was broken."

I had to say. While I never bullied them, I was forceful and, I like to think, effective."

The 'recovery' was from alcoholism and depression, which almost led to him taking his own life, right in the middle of City's vital 1998 99 season which ended in those unbelievable scenes at the Wembley play off final against Gillingham.
