21st May 2008, Ryan Giggs comes on as a substitute for Manchester United in the Champions League Final against Chelsea in Moscow. In doing so he beats Sir Bobby Charlton's record number of appearances for Manchester United and with 759 appearances becomes the player who has pulled on the United shirt more times than any other in the club's history. Not only did he break this record but he also went on to score the winning penalty in the game which crowned Manchester United kings of Europe again.

In what has been an illustrious career, no player has won more medals than Ryan, however his legacy is not just about numbers and figures. Throughout his time at Old Trafford he has played with dazzling flair, breathtaking skill and a fleet-footed assuredness that has created unforgettable moments of magic. It's not just what he did; it's how he did it.

The DVD goes behind the scene's with United's biggest star. In an access all areas summer Ryan talks through all the key moments of his playing career, shows what his interests are away from football, introduces his friends and family and talks about his plans for the future. This DVD is the comprehensive and definitive account of Giggs' time at United and shows how the boy who was tipped to become the new George Best ended up surpassing even Sir Bobby Charlton in becoming a record-breaking superstar and the symbol of United's dominance during football's Premier League era.

This is a must-buy for any admirer of Ryan Giggs - and it says a lot about the player that this could possibly extend beyond Manchester United fans.

Unusually for a sports DVD it is a high quality piece of work: it could almost stand up to be being broadcast as a TV documentary. The production values are high and although indulgent at times, it is mostly well paced and engrossing.

The most rewarding material - perhaps surprisingly - is of the young Ryan Giggs, or Ryan Wilson as he then was. It is unusual for there to be so much good quality footage of a teenager, and it reveals a blisteringly fast, impossibly well-balanced rake of a winger turning junior defences inside out. You wouldn't have to be a professional football scout to spot that any top club should try and gobble him up. Astonishingly however Manchester City declined to offer him schoolboy forms. So United pounced - and the story of Alex Ferguson turning up at the family home is well told.

There is a strong cast-list of interviewees, but the best interview material relates almost entirely to the early part of his career, with his family and friends appearing to good effect. The later clips are mostly a repetitive sequence of high profile testimonals to what a great guy he is. The interview material with Giggs himself is consistently good however. He is honest and modest - and gives enjoyable insights into famous moments such as his turn in the penalty shoot out in the Champion's League Final of 2008.

The star section is the whole DVD chapter given to THAT goal against Arsenal. Lee Dixon and Alex Ferguson deconstruct the moment; we see it from every conceivable angle; and it only seems to get better and better.

This is a wonderful documentary spanning the career of Ryan Giggs. Not only is he the one of the true legends of Manchester United, he is also one of the greatest players in British football history. The DVD is packed with great moments from throughout his career and takes an in depth look at the man, as well. There is great music! Great goals! Great moments! It is an excellent buy!

Don't be put off by the first few minutes of this documentary, which features a number of annoyingly incomplete action clips, accompanied by irritating, thumping 'music'. On the whole, this is an excellent tribute to a Manchester United legend, featuring many interesting observations from the man himself, who comes across as charming and humble. It covers Ryan's career up to the end of the 2007/2008 season. The 2008/2009 season, when he won an 11th Premier League title and was named PFA Player of the Year, is NOT included. The special features include all of Ryan's goals up to May 2008.

A wonderful insight into the life of one of Manchester United's greatest ever players. Well produced and it's only when you look at this DVD you truly appreciate what a great, down to earth talent this guy is. Thanks Ryan.

Giggsy has always been regarded as a sort of adoptive son in our house, even though we're only a year or two older, even though the Missus supports Liverpool.

Football biographies are generally a bit of a yawn, but Giggs is an engaging, unassuming subject, not afraid to laugh at himself. Hardly an in-depth, warts-and-all portrait, it's nevertheless more entertaining than I expected. The highlight is the goals package - an hour of them - a great way to relive twenty years of swashbuckling United football, through their greatest player of the era. In fact, this is worth getting just for THAT goal against Arsenal. Never was football justice done in such style - and full marks to Lee Dixon for telling his side of it with grace and good humour.

Of many fine peer tributes probably the greatest, and the words which sum up his career, comes from Alessandro Del Piero (in English, too): 'Ryan Giggs is number one'.

Five stars if you're a United fan; if you're not, and you're still reading this, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it.
