Product description


`Taylor offers a fine account of this fascinating period in (Ferguson's) career'

(The Observer)

‘Invaluable and engrossing’

(Four Four Two magazine)

‘For anybody who wants to know more about the enigma that is Fergie, they should read this book’

(The Daily Star)

'An excellent and affectionate portrayal of Ferguson'

(The Independent)


When Man Utd deposed Chelsea as Premiership champions at the end of the 2006-07 season, Sir Alex Ferguson described it as the 'greatest achievement' of his twenty years in charge. A year earlier his managerial career had reached its madir amid speculation he would be forced out of Old Trafford. Those two seasons serve as a snap shot of the highest and lowest ebbs of Alex Ferguson's career. As a portrait of Ferguson, no other two seasons can encapsulate all that he embodies and why he is still the greatest manager in the game.Written over the course of two eventful, diverse and controversial seasons, "This Is the One" offers a unique portrait of Sir Alex Ferguson from a privileged position behind the scenes. As a football writer for the "Guardian", Daniel Taylor has been there from day one, and seen every side of Ferguson, mixing the flint-faced authoritarian caricature, the infamous hairdryer treatment, and the softer, humane side of an immensely likeable man. Entertaining, revelatory, sometimes shocking but always affectionate, this is an honest portrait of a man who infuriates as much as he inspires, but whose heart is as big as the Man Utd trophy room.
