Product Description

Publisher: Orion Books

Author: John White

In a handy day-by-day format, John White tells the story of Manchester United so fans can go to any day of the year and look up what events happened on that day in years gone by - even on 29 February we learn that in 1972, Martin Buchan became United's then record signing when he joined from Aberdeen.

This book is sure to be one for trivia fans everywhere for, as Sir Alex Ferguson says in his Foreword: 'Just opening the book at any page really takes you on a tour of the history and mystique that universally attracts and surrounds Manchester United. Like any good book John has not missed a thing because he has taken the time to painstakingly research all there is to know about events in the history of the club.' So from the time United fought off bankruptcy, through to winning the Treble in 1999, it is all here in the fascinating account of the best and worst days for United. (hb)
