Manchester United: Player by Player
Manchester United: Player by Player
by Ivan Ponting
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Every single Red Devil, 25 Dec. 2004
In 1989, I bought Ivan Ponting's first 'player by player' book. And I thought it was time to have an updated edition. This new version is superb, every player since 1955 is given a great profile. In this new edition, there are profiles of all of the 1948 FA cup winning side and a list of names that have represented United (and Newton Heath, their forerunners). The only bad thing is that with player turnover, the book becomes dated quickly as new players arrive.

4.0 out of 5 stars King Of Kings, 25 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Live In Liverpool (Audio CD)
The Bunnymen are at their best on the live stage. This CD features some excellent performances from the current day line up. Particularly impressive is the version of Zimbo, which is given a 'widescreen epic' feel.
Great though this CD is, the Bunnymen still miss bassist Les Pattinson and the late Pete Defreitas on drums. They both gave the original Bunnymen an extra dimension.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Funny Old Game!, 25 Dec. 2004
Jimmy Greaves is well known to two generations of football fans. Firstly the brilliant goalscorer of Chelsea, Tottenham and England, and to a lesser extent, AC Milan and West Ham. He later re-invented himself as the funniest pundit and made saturday afternoons rivetting viewing with Ian St John.
I found the book to be a great read all the way through. The commentary of his playing career shows a man who loved playing the game in a very different era.
Contrary to other people's views. I found the book to be very witty, mirroring the personality of Greavsie himself.
Football on TV could do with a Greavsie revival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eleventh Heaven...from some hellish moments., 25 Dec. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite an FA cup win 2004 wasn't the greatest of recent seasons for United. Rio Ferdinands' well documented failure to attend a drugs test led to the start of an 8 month ban from January. Then United's league season fell apart. some unconvincing wins were followed by surprise defeats to Wolves and Middlesbrough.
As usual the end of season review is well produced and features interviews with the majority of first team players (Phil and Gary Neville appearing most).
Best feature is the highlights from the 1993 summer tour to the USA which saw some superb goals and the first glimpse of Cristiano Ronaldo tormenting the United defence while playing for Sporting Lisbon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Black and White, but full of colour, 3 Dec. 2004
I purchased this video in 1989 and I still love it to this day. This was the time when football really took off. England won the world cup in 1966. George Best, Bobby Charlton, Jimmy Greaves, Bobby Moore... All the heroes from this golden era are featured. There are several games from when MotD began broadcasting in colour.
Definitely recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Terry, 2 Dec. 2004
Screened in 1989, this was Dennis Waterman's last series as Terry McCann. First episode is the excellent 'A Sorry Lorry, Morrie' but the rest of the series doesn't match up to the previous years. The stories seem to emphasise that Terry is too old to be Arthur's Minder.
It's still recommended to all Minder fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Dane!, 14 Nov. 2004
Big Peter was United's best goalkeeper of all time and the backbone of the 1990's successes. The video features interviews and a season by season guide to the best of Peters saves.
Oddly, a great save he made from Dennis Bergkamp in extra time of the epic 1999 FA cup semi final relay is missing and footage of his excellent performances in Denmark's 1992 european championship winning side would have been welcome, but this is a must for any United fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most smug film ever!, 14 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Love Actually [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This must go down as one of the most overrated films ever. The film is so schmaltzy it's untrue. The cast is so smug and self satisfied and you don't get to like any of the characters.
Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Large V.A.T., Dave", 18 Oct. 2004
Being A fan of Minder, it would be hard not to like this book. The only bad point is that it suffers in comparison to Robert Fairclough's 'Sweeney companion' which also starred Dennis Waterman. That book has contributions from many people from that series and in depth analysis of each episode. This book has a few interviews with stars such as George Cole, Patrick Malahide and Glynn Edwards. More in depth reviews of episodes would have been great but Brian Hawkins did well making this book from limited resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Van The Man, 17 Oct. 2004
Alas no silverware this season, but 2001/02 saw some great football by United and the introduction of Ruud Van Nistelrooy who scored over 30 goals.
The 5-3 win over Spurs is worth buying the DVD alone. A true Classic.
