Now in its eighth edition, "Manchester United Player By Player" continues to expand in scope. Naturally, the latest generation of Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils, with the sensational trinity of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez at the forefront, are featured in depth, while all the timeless favourites - Carey, Edwards, Charlton, Law, Best, Robson, Cantona, Giggs, Keane, Scholes, the list seems endless - are included again, many of them comprehensively revised and updated. But this time, the book offers a massive extra dimension, extending its coverage to include a profile of every man to represent United in senior competition since the Second World War. In addition there are lovingly constructed assessments of the heroes of long ago, pioneers such as Billy Meredith, Sandy Turnbull and Charlie Roberts, and an entry on every player who has ever kicked a ball for Manchester United - and indeed for their predecessors, the Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football and Cricket Club - stretching all the way back to their first FA Cup tie in 1886/87.Between these covers, Ivan Ponting has crafted nearly 400 player profiles, not only of the household names, but also of those footballers whose stars flashed but fleetingly across the Old Trafford firmament. Even if they ran out for just one senior game - the likes of Walter Whitehurst, Dennis Walker and a certain Peter Beardsley - they will be found here.This, then, is not just another book on the most popular club in the world. "Manchester United Player By Player" has been put together with warmth, insight and colour by a writer who has followed the Red Devils for as long as he can remember. Lavishly illustrated with around 450 photographs, it will enthuse and delight countless thousands of supporters around the globe.
