The book that every Man Utd fan must have is back with a revised edition packed with a wealth of new features. This updated edition of The Pocket Book of Man Utd features a brand new cover design and is bursting with the colourful history of one of football's biggest clubs. Learn about United's glorious history, from the very first team back in 1878, to the 1968 European Cup winners, to the side that snared the treble in 1999. Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 1985 FA Cup Final victory over Everton or the 1-0 win against Newcastle in 1996 that changed the course of the title race. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it Best and Charlton, Keane and Robson, or current heroes Giggs and Rooney. Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Man Utd memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget David Beckham's effort from behind the halfway line against Wimbledon in 1996?), legendary managers and tactics of the club's most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years - yes, that includes the ill-fated grey kit of 1995/96. On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of Old Trafford, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite David May.
