I really enjoyed Andy's book on United in the 80's and was looking forward to this book from what was United's leanest period trophy wise since the War. I was only a kid during the seventies but i remember the 79 Cup final still aged 8 when we got back to 2-2 against Arsenal and then lost in the final minutes.

This is the same format as previous books with interviews with big and fringe players from the time( Gordon Hill/Lou Macari/Joe Jordan/The Doc etc) and their memories of games/managers. Really good read if your a red and want to know more about a period when United were relegated, had a number of Managers but still reached 3 FA Cup Finals wining one against Liverpool denying them the Treble. I believe Andy is doing on a book on the 60's -cant wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Stars Behind The Doc's Team, 26 Feb 2013

This review is from: United! United! (Kindle Edition)
I am a great devotee of Andy Mitten's books, and this is undoubtedly one of his best. It follows my fave United era, the Reds under Docherty, which, after 1974, was simply enthralling. If you want to view some golden moments of his team, go to Youtube, but this book is the real story behind that era told in interview form by the players. Andy writes each one in that brilliant syle that you could well be sitting alongside him, as each player reveals his own story. Thank you Andy once again. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight to the '70s United, 22 Aug 2012

This review is from: United! United! (Hardcover)
Loved this. Brought back a lot of memories of those days - we didn't win many trophies back then but what a roller-coaster. The '70s teams weren't among United's most successful but they'd rank along with all the others for excitement. (Some matches I remember: '71 Chelsea 3-2, West Ham 4-2, South'pton 5-2; '74 Burnley 3-2, Sunderland 3-2; '75 Sheff Utd 5-1; '76 Wolves 3-2, Leeds 3-2, Derby 2-0, Newcastle 4-3, Ajax 2-0, Newcastle 7-2; '77 Liverpool 2-1, Porto 5-2, Everton 6-2; 79 Liverpool 2-2, Arsenal 2-3). The author has the confidence of the players (Macari, Jordan, McIlroy, etc) and so is able to get their inside views.
