Book Description

1 Mar 2010
Born Ryan Joseph Wilson in 1973, Giggs first trained with Manchester City's School of Excellence before Sir Alex Ferguson spotted his prodigious talent, turning up at Giggs's home to sign him on his 14th birthday. By the time he made his Manchester United first team debut aged just 17, many considered him to be the greatest talent in English football since George Best. By the advent of the Premier League in 1992, Giggs was firmly established as United's left winger, a position he continued to dominate until late in his career when Ferguson switched him to a deeper role in central midfield. Famed for his pace and skill on the ball, Giggs has scored vital goals throughout his career, most notably his incredible solo effort in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal, where he picked the ball up in his own half and embarked on a mazy run around the entire Arsenal back four before lofting the ball into the net. He was an integral part of the historic Treble-winning side in 1999, and is the only Manchester United player to have played in both the 1999 and 2008 Champions League victories. Having committed his entire career to United, Giggs eclipsed Bobby Charlton's record in April 2009, when he made his 800th appearance for the club. That year also brought his 11th Premier League winner's medal - he is the only player to have scored in every Premier League campaign since its inception - and the PFA Player of the Year award. Giggs has scored nearly 150 goals for United and his incredible record with the club has ensured that he will go down in history as one of United's greatest ever players. This is the amazing story of Manchester United's legendary number 11.

1.0 out of 5 stars Giggsy - the wiki book 16 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the worst biography I've ever read. the book reads like this: lists all the games that Ryan has played in, states whether he scores or doesn't and then uses quotes that Ryan has said to the media to backup how he felt. that's it. that's the gist for the entire book.

shameless cash in that I could have written myself as it was written without direct access to Giggs! he hasn't spoken a single new word to this person. it's all previously quoted material

please look elsewhere. you're better off going to Gigg's wiki page. because that all this book is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Repeated knowledge 2 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
I found this book to be full of information that most people already known with hardly any new information included, overall a book read and you won't learn much about the man from reading this

5.0 out of 5 stars THE TIMES review of Giggsy 8 Mar 2010
By Danny D
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
THE TIMES, MARCH 23, 2010

This is the amazing story of Ryan Giggs, Manchester United's legendary No 11 and one of their greatest ever players. This biography offers a fascinating insight into Giggs's life and career...

From the Times, March 23, 2010, p77

.................

Frank Worrall, who regularly pens work for the Sunday Times, is the author in this excellent look at the career of the Manchester United an Wales legend Ryan Giggs. So much can be said about Giggs that is hardly seems 288 pages is enough, but Worrall has a good go and takes the readers right through the Welshman's life, from his upbringing on a council estate to standing on top of the world, lifting the Champions League with Manchester United.

There are unknown snippets even the most avid of Giggs fans will find.

Giggs has done so much in the game and going on that journey once again is more than a worthwhile way to spend an afternoon.

If you only buy one book this year here's one that has only gone into the bookshops a week ago and should create plenty of interest for any true Manchester United fan. It is the amazing story of the legendary number 11.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 20 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
Without doubt this is the worst sports biography i have ever had the misfortune to read.

The only reason i persevered with it until the end is my interest in the subject matter; i need not have bothered.

The book tells us nothing of any substance about Giggs. All it does instead is reel off dates and results (particularly in the last few years) but do we learn anything more about the man, his family or the major influences on his career? Absolutely not.

This looks like a sports writer just digging up facts and then padding them out sufficiently to turn them in to a book. It is a complete waste of time and effort and an insult to such a worthy subject.

Avoid at all costs.

If you want to read a well written, thoroughly researched biography on a United legend then look for "Cantona - The Rebel who would be King".
