What is included with this book?


The definitive, official history of Manchester United, the world's most popular football club, is the one book no Ufan can afford to be without When the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company formed the Newton Heath L and YR Cricket and Football Club in 1878, they could have had no idea what it was they were starting. Renamed Manchester United in 1902 after financial problems, the new club would soon go on to win the league title and the FA Cup. It was just the beginning of one of the most remarkable and gripping stories in sport. This masterful account explains how United rose to success, and how the club recovered in the bomb-damaged aftermath of World War II under the brilliant guidance of Matt Busby. The loss of the lives of eight players in the Munich Air Disaster of February 1958 stunned a nation, and football fans around the world. Busby recovered to build a new team around the talents of Best, Law, and Charlton, becoming the first English football club to win the European Cup in 1968. More recently, United has dominated English football under manager Sir Alex Ferguson, winning an incredible 19 Premier League titles, including a unique Treble in 1999. The incredible story of United's success, the great stars from Billy Meredith more than 100 years ago to Ferdinand, Giggs and Rooney today, are all featured in this essential volume. Packed with stunning photographs and all the facts and figures a fan could ever want to know.
