A must read for all Manchester United Fans. Written with true passion and including many stunning archive photographs, this makes a wonderful gift and a tear-jerking, fist-pumping read as Clive Hindle charts the triumphs and tragedies that make Manchester United the the greatest football club in the world.
One fan’s sometimes controversial view of how a humble football team from northern England eclipsed all its rivals and ended the last millennium as the most famous club in the world.
From death at Munich in 1958 to the defeat of Chelsea in Moscow half a century later, this is the story of Manchester United. The great players gallop through these pages like thoroughbreds – Duncan Edwards, Georgie Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo – they are all there with the three knights, Sir Matt Busby, Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson, and his successor Louis Van Gaal. And when it comes to the leveraged Glazer takeover the author pulls no punches at all but tells it how it is.
Colourful and poignant pictures catalogue Manchester United’s extraordinary history.
This book is no mere football discography, this is not about a timeline of events, no, this is a passionate account with sharp observations and opinion that doesn’t involve fences and sitting.
“It’s the greatest thrill that you’ve ever seen,
They are known as a soccer machine.
They are the best, there is no doubt,
So raise a cheer and give a shout.”
