We cover a lot of ground, compare City's history and the common threads that run through both blue clubs in the great North West cities of Liverpool and Manchester, before getting into some great tales about Joe Mercer, beloved of Everton, Arsenal and Manchester City fans plus many neutral fans for sure.
