Personalised Manchester United Football Book
- Gift Details
Open-up the Personalised Manchester United Football Book and reminisce the most triumphant wins and defeats, through the press coverage they’ve gained over the last 100 years.
Read all about record-breaking singings, on-and-off-pitch rows, the cup wins and defeats. Founded in 1902, football fans will reminisce their fondest memories of their favourite team!
20 League titles, 12 F.A. Cups, 3 European Cups... when it comes to creating a Manchester United history book, the problem is less about filling it, and more about trying to fit it all in! Officially the most decorated club in England based on total trophies won, United’s 141-year history is packed with success, particularly the Ferguson era, as from 1990 to 2013 the club didn’t go a single season without at least one piece of silverware.
Now, you can revisit all of those memorable triumphs through newspaper articles printed at the time with our wonderful personalised Manchester United history book, showcasing over a century of Red Devils history from Old Trafford, Wembley and beyond.
Beginning in 1909, this Manchester United Football Book features the club’s entire league and cup successes, both domestically and in Europe. In 1909, United won their first FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Bristol City.
In the proceeding 100-odd years, the club hasn’t looked back and today is the most successful English club of all time. This football book illustrates United’s rise – from humble beginnings to one of the wealthiest and most widely supported clubs in the world.
It includes a further ten successful FA Cup campaigns and 17 of their 18 league titles. Four league cups are in here, too, as well as coverage of the 1968 European Cup win and the two Champions League victories in 1999 and 2008. Endless successes aside, the Busby Babes get a lot of limelight and so do Fergie’s Fledgelings.

Manchester United FC was founded in 1878 as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway FC. The club faced financial problems in the early years, but Man United won their first title in 1908 and have since gone on to win over thirty major honours. Man U became the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968. The Red Devils won a second European cup in 1999, becoming the first English team to win the ‘treble’ of league, FA Cup and European Cup titles in the same season. Iconic manager Alex Ferguson was knighted for his services to football following this special campaign. ‘Fergie’ first joined Manchester United in 1986 and the Red Devils have won over twenty major honours under his management. Manchester United enjoyed a particularly satisfying season in 2008-2009. Man United fought for the league against bitter rivals Liverpool, but the Red Devils emerged victorious with a third consecutive title. The win meant that Man U had matched Liverpool’s proud record of eighteen top flight championships.
A Manchester United Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Red Devils. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Man U Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Man United memorabilia collection.
This Manchester United Football Book opens with United winning the FA Cup against Bristol City in 1909. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the current era.
Top stories featured in this personalised Manchester United book include league wins in 1911, 1952, 1957, 1965, and 1967. The Gift Books also feature coverage of FA Cup victories in 1948, 1963, 1977, 1983, 1985 and 1990, as well as the 1994 and 1996 ‘doubles’. Other highlights include the Red Devils’ European triumphs against Benfica 1968, Barcelona in 1991 (UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup), Bayern Munich in 1999 – as part of the treble – and Chelsea in 2008. The Manchester United Book also contains a poignant report on the tragic Munich air crash in 1958 and interesting articles on the signing of Dennis Law for £115,000 in 1962, George Best’s senior debut in 1963 and Best’s amazing performance against Benfica in 1966. You can also read about the appointment of Alex Ferguson in 1986 and relive Manchester United becoming the first side to win the Premiership in 1993.
The Gift Book includes Manchester United’s most recent Premier League title wins and cup victories, as newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season.
