Man United v Man City...
City ahead on the Quiz-o-Meter!



Who will win in the battle of the quizzes?


The two Manchester clubs are battling it out at the top of the Premier League, but they're also battling it out for domination of the quiz book league*.

Candescent Press recently released two great quiz books. One for Man United, written by a die-hard red, Colin Merton. The second, about Man City, and written by a true blue, Matt Maguire. We all thought that the United book would sell lots more copies, but have been surprised to see the City book bounding ahead in the charts.

Pride is at stake, so let's see if you really do love your team!

The Books

*We accept that this is slightly less important than the Premier League, but it's about on a par with the Carling Cup!
