Personalised Manchester United Football Book - Gift Details

Are you a football fan? Mad for Manchester United? Supporting your team is as much of a pastime as it is a full-time job, right? The action-packed, suspenseful 90-minute session, involving scores of infuriated fans leaping off their seats and yelling simultaneously, surely means you warrant a chunk of the manager’s earnings!

Beginning in 1909 and concluding at the end of last season, this Manchester United Football Book features the club’s entire league and cup successes, both domestically and in Europe. It’s a very thick book!

Now your favourite fan of The Red Devils can experience again their club’s highs and lows that have landed them where they are today, through the press coverage they’ve gained over the last 100 years. Read all about record-breaking signings, on-and-off-pitch rows, desperate cup winners and shocking demotions – you’re sure to experience a whirlwind of feelings and fond memories.

In 1909, United won their first FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Bristol City. In the preceding 100-odd years, the club hasn’t looked back and today is the most successful English club of all time. This football book, made using reprints of original newspaper reports, 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, as you’d expect. And so do Fergie’s Fledglings.

Open up the book, and you’ll immerse yourself in the most memorable stories collected from Mirror newspapers. Exhilarating match reports, boardroom spectacles, scandalous transfer hearsay and headlines that not only made the back page, but the front too, are just some of the things you’ll read about in this fantastic football book.

All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.

Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.

Personalised Manchester United Football Book

Enjoy a Newspaper History of the Red Devils

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.
