This is a terrific book - genuinely hard to put down. Andy Mitten seems to have a knack of putting United footballers at their ease and having them tell their stories as if they were chatting to a couple of mates down the pub. So even though some of the star names (Beckham, Scholes, Keane, Schmeichel) are absent, my guess is that those he does talk to - the lesser lights, like David May and Jordi Cruyff, or players who are no longer reporting in daily to Sir Alex, like Pallister, Cole, Butt and Sharpe - provide more of an insight into the United experience. (Cole, in particular, is an excellent, self-revelatory interview.) And the main man, Eric Cantona, is present and talkative here, evidently still full of affection for his time at Old Trafford. The book is very cleverly structured, too, so that it provides a pretty full narrative of the decade, with high and low points evocatively described. I read it through in a couple of days over Christmas and had to root around for a video of United in the 90s to relive those games Andy and the players brought back. I'm heading back to the 80s now, with Andy Mitten's earlier tome, "We're the Famous Man Utd". And when the dust settles, I hope he gets to do the same with the Noughties.

Great behind the scenes views and opinions from the players that lived through it.
Amazing that these egos were so easy to talk to. once the limelight was in effect off them ofcourse!
A good read!

Format: Hardcover
I have read few players books lately. It's amazing how sorry most of them have thought of their career and them self. This book is not like that. I have only enjoy one other football book like this. "We're the famous Man United" by the same author. If you support Manchester United this is a must buy. If you support another club this is also a must buy. 5 star out of 5. So when you read this Andy Mitten. I'm waiting on the '70 and '60 books. Start now those legend will not live forever except in our dreams. - Icelandic Red - Armann.

Having purchased a similar book by Andy Mitten on players in the 80s, I got this book with good expectations and was similarly pleased.

The players profiled are varied and all have a story to tell. From Jordi Cruyff and what might have been to other stars who suffered from injuries such as Blomqvist, Paul Parker and Lee Martin, these are not the standard careers of highs - there are plenty of tough times faced. But interlaced with fun stories (and occasionally ones that make you raise an eyebrow) this was an honest book about football though just in the 90s already seems like a different time. Eric Cantona's best moment being when he kicked a hooligan and his version was well worth a read.

Doesn't go into the details of the players careers or stats etc; although clearly not meant to - In a way, it is limited by the players it has chosen and with the players being quite recent, I thought perhaps the book of the 80s had more stories (or maybe that is just how times changed!)

There is certainly a knack to being able to interview people and get more than a standard response and this is achieved is this book.

Mitten as teenager started the fanzine "United We Stand" and is a passionate United fan, he writes for MEN and 442 amongst other publications. It is a book, that is the players stories during the 90's- Fergie's period at United. The book doesn't pick the most glamorous names and that's the way he wanted it. Mitten wished to reveal a real book with individuals willing to speak their mind with no caution over offending others/club itself. Players featured include Cantona, Cruyff, Butt, May and Pallister- Martin Edwards is also interviewed amongst others. Players reflect in their own words what life was really like, some excellent stories and hilarious ones too. It is good to read it from their side. The book looks into what the players did after United and are doing now. Very enjoyable and there is a great story about Nicky Butt burning Schmeichel's nether regions with a teapot and big Pete chasing him all about the changing room naked!

Any Mitten is clearly a United fan but he is also a good writer who researched his subject with enthusiasm. This book features interviews with stars of the 90s such as Cantona, Sharpe, Cole, Butt and other notables. The interviews are never boring and are incisive. The read is an interesting one and insightful. Perhaps the most interesting chapter and the highlight of the book is thye interview of the unfairly much maligned mart Edwards the former chairman of the club, which covers the near sale to Michael Knighton. A really good read and a must for serious United fans.

90's version of We are the Famous Man Utd. Enjoyable to read the other side of what went on at the club. The insight into the different players and what made them tick. Andy Mitten has a good style where he includes history of the players and what was going on at Utd along with the the actual interview. Would be interested to read the players of the 00's who are more cosseted and pampered, with less direct contact with the fans
