If you're a Red then you HAVE to buy this.
It's part of your history, your Footballing heritage.
Doesn't matter if you were too young or not born in '92 - if you support Manchester United then you have to know about it's history to understand it's present.
Really the "Class Of '92" had just 3 fantastic players in it. Butt & the Neville's were journeymen really. They worked hard, all loved United, but were unbelievably lucky to find themselves in a few exceptional Teams under one of the greatest Managers of all time.
It's Scholes Giggs & Beckham that are the real talents in this sextuplet.
Scholes - for me - is the greatest Central Midfielder of my generation. Truly gifted. He looked like something out of the 1930's, wasn't in the slightest bit interested in fame or motivated by money (he NEVER had a Business Manager and would sit down with Sir Alex in his office and simply agree what he was to be paid, and leave). He loved to go home after a game and be with his Family. A genuine old school Professional Footballer. And a sublime Talent that was loved right across Europe. He's Xavi's favourite player of all time for example. Zidane adored him.
Giggsy & Beckham we know more about of course - Beckham way too much frankly - but the story of how these young boys bonded and how they worked their way into the first team is fascinating and you can genuinely see that this bonding when they were such young lads - no matter the ensuing fame & money - is still in evidence now and no doubt always will be.
They grew up together, won much more than they lost together, and are ALL Manchester United players to the root of their souls.

A fantastic Film-Documentary for anyone, but especially my fellow Reds.

The book "The Class of 92" was about the Manchester United Youth team of that year. The DVD is more about the reminiscences of the key players from the youth team of 1992 who were part of the Man United team which won the treble in 1999. Having read the book first helped me enjoy the DVD more.

I am a Man City supporter, but could not help liking the DVD. All the players (Giggs, Beckham, Scholes, Butt and the Neville brothers) came over as down-to-earth, amusing and modest. What they had to day was interesting.

The only negative points for me were the contribution of Eric Cantona and Zinedine Zidane. Cantona's English is so poor, it would have been better to have him speak French and translate, but maybe he is no clearer in French. Zidane had nothing new or interesting to say. I would have preferred to hear more from Eric Harrison on their development or the perspective of a respected opponent, eg Tony Adams.

Very interesting; the players come over as responsible committed and intelligent men. So much so that after watching it, I don't know how I can continue hating Gary Neville, who epitomised everything "Red" in his playing days.

Thoroughly enjoyed watching this documentary in high definition blu ray. Great to see these guys interacting and talking about each other behind the scenes. I wonder if we'll ever see a group of players break through from the youth system like this again. I love how they brought in some of the other players who never made it from that group, as well. I would've loved to see a lot more football footage especially from their days in the youth team but the documentary is still good by itself. I've watched it several times and it's a must have for any Man Utd fan.

So this really is a glorious archive of an incredible achievement by six working class lads who joined a team as boys and within seven years won every domestic title and then finally the treble by winning the European cup. Beautifully filmed, wonderful narrative. So evocative of an era not that long ago, yet feels another lifetime. Gary Neville sums it up at the end when he says... "I don't think anything like this will ever happen again, given where football culture has gone and how immediate society is now..."

Bought this for my husband who is a huge Manchester United fan, I never really expected to enjoy it (I couldn't care less about football, or Man Utd - sorry!) but it was surprisingly interesting. I'd intended to get on with other things while he watched this but it really drew me in. These are such an interesting group of lads, all of whom really support each other and they obviously have a tight bond while all having very distinct personalities.

A must for any United fan. The glory days of the 90's are brought back through the class of 92 reminiscing with each other and the insight into these United heroes is brilliant. Tony Blair gets in on the act, which seems odd considering he's supposedly a Newcastle fan! The banter between the guys and their stories make this a great football documentary. Also the extra is worth a watch too.

Great film Heard a lot about it and finally saw it and it did not dissapoint and I am not even a Man Utd fan But there is no doubting their achievements and also the soundtrack has a great pedigree Brings back good and bad memories of that era All in all worth renting as it is as much a social documentary as much as a sports one

Bought as a Christmas gift for a Manchester United supporter of many years standing (my youngest son) ... and it did not disappoint. A very entertaining documentary with lots of good football snippets and lots of enjoyable chat from the Class of 92 (David Beckham,the Neville brothers Gary and Phil, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.) I note now that Amazon has reduced its price - I paid full price but it was still worth it!

Don't get me wrong not a fan of United at all but you have to take your hat off to what they have achieved and this DVD is a massive insight into arguably the most successful side ever in English football. It's not all about Beckham you get to understand the upbringing, management and experiences that helped shaped all the players into winners. It's a really good watch and makes you realise that these guys are normal people with normal experiences. Would really reccommend it obviously for United fans but any genuine football fans also.

Bought this for my dad for xmas. I was interested in it myself so I watched it first. I did tell him and he did see the funny side of it. Its a nice little documentary, not sure why they bought it out on DVD rather than the telly, its not like they need the money. The 2nd film which documents how they made it was pretty good too, especially the bit with Beckham pratising with the tyre
