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.
