The official Manchester City website announced earlier today the sad news regarding Malcolm Allison .
It is with great sadness that we report that Malcolm Allison has passed away aged 83.
Perhaps City's greatest ever coach, he joined the Blues in 1965 when Joe Mercer brought him to City in the summer of 1965 from Plymouth Argyle where his innovative methods marked him out as a talent with huge potential.
Alongside Mercer, 'Big Mal' formed a formidable partnership which oversaw the greatest period of success in the club`s history, thanks in no small part to Malcolm`s willingness to try new and often untried training techniques.
The Mercer/Allison team helped the Blues secure the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup-Winners' Cup during an unforgettable three-year spell.
Later, Malcolm had two separate spells in sole charge of the club and continued to be held in high esteem by players and fans alike, though without Mercer at his side, they proved frustrating periods for such a talented coach.
Flamboyant, brilliant and larger than life, Malcolm will be sorely missed by everyone at the Club and beyond.
The Club, whose flags are at half mast, will pay tribute to Malcolm at the forthcoming game against Arsenal. There will also be an appropriate commemoration to his life and work in the memorial garden at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Malcolm Allison on Manchester City's run to winning the FA Cup, and taking over as manager of Manchester City.
RIP 'Big Mal'. You will always be in our hearts.
