Book Description

1 Aug 2011
Sir Alex Ferguson is undoubtedly the greatest football manager in living memory. With a reign at Manchester United approaching 25 years, Sir Alex has brought countless trophies and records to Old Trafford and has transformed United into the most popular football club in the world. Born in Glasgow in 1941, Ferguson played for Queen's Park, Dunfermline and Rangers before retiring in 1974 to begin his managerial career. At Aberdeen, he led a struggling side to the Scottish League championship and the 1983 European Cup Winners' Cup. But it is at Manchester United that Sir Alex has achieved world domination. Joining the club in November 1986, Ferguson immediately set about improving the players' discipline and strengthening the squad. Things didn't go exactly to plan in Sir Alex's first few years at United, but his signing of Eric Cantona for a bargin GBP1.2million in 1992 helped to secure their first League trophy in 26 years. An incredible run of success followed, shaped by the emergence of Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Nicky Butt. And Fergie's finest moment was still to come - in 1999, when Manchester United romped to an unprecedented Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies. He was knighted the same year for his services to football. Under Sir Alex, United have been Premier League champions 12 times, surpassing arch-rivals Liverpool's league title haul in the process, and have reached four Champions League finals, winning the trophy on two occasions. This in-depth biography charts the unstoppable rise of the Premier League's longest-serving manager.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of the man's achievements 22 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I grew up hating Fergie and his wining ways back in the 90s. Like everyone else though, I just had to accept it and then face facts: he's the greatest living British football manager. I wanted to know more about the reason for his success. The book doesn't really provide this as it focuses upon season by season overviews rather than the man himself. I would say that it is slightly more a biography of United than of Fergie. That said, it's an okay read - probably a must for United fans, and not success-starved fans of Tottenham Hotspur like myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Probably the best book ever on Fergie' 12 Jan 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Press review

'An epic biography charting the unstoppable rise of the Premier League's longest-serving and most successful manager ever: Sir Alex Ferguson, who's been in charge at Manchester United for an amazing 24 years. This is probably the best book ever on Fergie.'

Russell Forgham, The Mail

WALKING IN A FERGIE WONDERLAND

Frank Worrall We have something to tuck in the footie fan's stocking this week and we're kicking off with a biography of that bloke from Govan.

He made a massive impact on Scottish football, then took a trip down the M6 to spread the magic.

Beautifully researched and packed with insider anecdotes, this is an outstanding account of the highs and lows of a career that has seen more drama than a cup final, more grit than a snowplough and more 'hairdryers' than Vidal Sassoon. If football is a game of two halves, one of them is guaranteed to be spending Christmas Day on the sofa with this.

Shari Low, The Daily Record, Dec 11, 2010

How an Arsenal fan came to revere Sir Alex
By: Frank Scicluna on 13 February 2011

If you are anything like me, reading a good book on a lazy Sunday is one of the most enjoyable times of the week - unless you have a game to watch which in this day and age happens more often than I would like. Call me an old fart if you want but a 3pm kick off on a Saturday afternoon is what I grew up with and freely admit that I yearn for the return of those long gone days. For those who may feel the same way, Truly Reds will therefore attempt to review one of the many Manchester United related books each Sunday which may tempt you to go out an get for a relaxing weekend read.
