Book Description

30 Sep 2010
This book offers fascinating insight into the team that set Manchester United onto the path to greatness. Featuring player profiles, match analyses, statistics and match data, it is arranged chronologically to allow the reader to easily follow the team's path to victory. When Manchester United captured the Premier League title at the end of the 2008-09 season it brought their trophy haul to 36 with 18 top-flight successes, 11 FA Cups, three League Cups, three European Cups and one Cup-Winners' Cup. As such it now seems only a matter of time before they catch and overtake their Lancashire rivals Liverpool, currently four trophies ahead, to become the most successful English side ever. Like all great clubs, however, it all had to start with a first success, and in the case of Manchester United it came just over 100 years ago when only a few years after almost going bust they captured the First Division title at the end of the 1907-08 season with a then record number of points. But how did they do it? Who were the players and management team that set the Manchester club on a path to greatness? Who were their opponents and what sort of football did they play? Find out in this, the first ever book on the Manchester United Championship-winning team of 1907-08.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 18 Feb 2014
By tony G
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not a Man.U. fan but am increasingly interested in the history of the game.This is brilliant.The format looks dull...a season game by game but you get a real 'feel' for the unfolding drama.Little snippets about other key Edwardian stars are great...more of those needed.Not a long book but quality.
