Customer Review

on 4 September 2008
This is an excellent book. I just finished translating it for the Dutch market. Being Dutch, I wasn't that familiar with a lot of things going on in English football. You get to know a lot about the whole history of United. Jim White obviously had the opportunity to talk with a lot of insiders and had access to all the information he needed. He writes with a lot of love about the club, clearly his favourite, but is critical where necessary. Furthermore, he has funny anecdotes and writes with the typically dry English humour. Of course, Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson are the two most important names in United history. Special attention has been paid to players like George Best and Eric Cantona. Sometimes, legendary goals (like the one Giggs scored against Arsenal) are described into detail (and can be found back on YouTube!). Being more of an Arsenal fan myself (well, actually, Ajax), you can't help but getting sympathy for Manchester United by reading this book. I'm sure the Dutch version will be a success as well!
