RIP Mike Doyle – a true Manchester football legend


To any Manchester United fan who remembers the mighty cross town battles with Manchester City in the late 60’s and early 70’s, today is a very sad day indeed. Former City and England international Mike Doyle has died at the relatively young age of 64 after being treated for liver failure. Doyle was part of the City team that won the English League title in 1968, the FA Cup in 1969, and the European Cup Winners and League Cups in 1970. He scored City’s first goal in the 1970 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion and skippered their 1976 League Cup winning side against Newcastle United – their last major honour until they won the FA Cup last month.

Under the guidance of managers Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison, Young was key to City’s most successful era. He was the club’s top scorer as City won the old First Division title in 1968 and found the net in the European Cup Winners’ Cup victory of 1970.
