My Manchester United Years: The Autobiography
Bobby Charlton is Manchester United through and through. He was a member of the original Busby Babes and has devoted his career to the club, playing in 754 games over 17 years. During that period he won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law, suffered devastating defeats and was involved in one of the greatest football tragedies of all time. Here, for the very first time, he tells the story of those United years. With his beloved Reds he tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three first division championships and in 1968 he reached the pinnacle of club success, winning the European Cup. Inevitably, such highs are balanced with no less dramatic lows, such as the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss which followed only weeks after the horrors of the Munich Air disaster, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan. He is one of the true gentlemen of football and the legacy that Bobby Charlton gives to United is beyond compare.

Manchester United: The Biography
Manchester United The Biography will do for the football team what Peter Ackroyd did for London in his huge biog of the same name. The book follows the club's extraordinary journey from its birth in the railway works of Newton Heath to its current status as Premier League and European champions. The key stages in United's history will, of course, be covered: the Munich Air Crash of 1958, which saw the best part of an entire team (the Busby Babes) being killed; becoming the first English team to win the European Cup in 1968 (with Bobby Charlton and George Best); the dominance of the club in the Premiership; the controversial sale to American tycoon Malcolm Glazer, right up to Moscow 2008. But by drawing on the recollections of everyone from players and managers to fans and backroom staff, Jim has unearthed enough new material to interest die-hard fans and casual supporters alike. A fascinating history of a remarkable football club, by one of Britain's best-known and most popular sports writers.

The Lost Babes: Manchester United and the Forgotten Victims of Munich
The Lost Babes (subtitled Manchester United and the Forgotten Victims of Munich) is Jeff Connor's compellingly readable account of one of the great tragedies in sporting history and its aftermath. The great manager Matt Busby had forged Manchester United into an invincible team in the 1950s. No one seemed able to halt the progress of these young and immensely talented players as they added the 1955-6 Championship Trophy to their accomplishments, repeating the feat next year. But all this was to change in the most tragic fashion when on the sixth of February, 1958, the plane bringing the team home from Munich crashed, ending the lives of eight of the Manchester United players along with other passengers on the plane. Britain (not just fans of the team) was devastated, as the careers of such talents as Roger Byrne (Englandís Captain), Duncan Edwards, Tommy Taylor and Eddie Coleman were ended at a stroke.

A Strange Kind of Glory: Sir Matt Busby and Manchester United
'Succeeds in capturing, for the first time, the essence of this enigmatic and intensely charismatic figure, who had such a huge impact on the game and the way it was managed and played' - "Daily Telegraph". 'Dunphy gives us a big and complex man who...didn't so much beat off his rivals as transcend them ...Dunphy's recreation of the pre-Munich years, the swelling of great ambition, great teams, is wonderfully fresh' - James Lawton. 'Lacing crisp reportage with explosive bursts of anger and dismay, Dunphy tells a tragic story well' - "Independent".Sir Matt Busby is a legend in football, an institution at Old Trafford, and, as the author argues, the 'last great football man'. He is regarded by many as the greatest manager ever, building three brilliant sides with players such as Charlton, Edwards, Law and Best.
