It’s competition time yet again folks, and this week to coincide with the interview with Andy Mitten on the RedCafe.net Podcast, we’ve got copies of his two latest books to give away.
Glory Glory! is the story of one of the greatest eras in the history of England s greatest club through the eyes of the players who made it happen. Not just the big wins, the cup finals and the trophy parades, but the half-time rows, the mad pranks, the boozy nights out and the training ground bust-ups.
Andy Mitten has tracked down ten of the stars from that team – including Eric Cantona, Andrew Cole, Lee Sharpe, and Nicky Butt as well as controversial chairman Martin Edwards – to open the door to both the dressing room and boardroom at Old Trafford as the club emerged as the dominant force in English football.
Glory Glory! is an astonishingly candid and revealing insight into a club that was winning its first league title in 26 years, the Double and that historic Treble. More than that, it as lively and entertaining sports book as you’ll ever read.
When Football Was Football: Manchester United
his is a superbly presented collection of photographs of Manchester United from its early days until 1992, newly selected from over 10,000 images in the “Daily Mirror’s” archive. These evocative pictures, many previously unpublished, bring to life the important events in United’s history: the triumphs of the first trophies, the tragedy of the Munich disaster, the successes that followed.
There are glorious images of United icons such as Edwardian superstar Billy Meredith, Sir Matt Busby and his first captain, Johnny Carey, lost ‘Babes’ Duncan Edwards and Tommy Taylor, and the stars of United’s first European Cup-winning side – George Best, Denis Law, Bobby Charlton, Paddy Crerand and Nobby Stiles.
