Back in March 1991, a coltish dark-haired winger stepped out onto the Old Trafford pitch for a First Division game against Everton. Little did the crowd of 45,656 realise that they were seeing the beginnings of a truly unique career that would extend for 24 seasons and see him break almost every record in the book. Now, in this wonderful tribute to a United legend, we get to hear from those who played with and against him, those who coached him, and those who trained him, and find out what it was that set Ryan Giggs apart from the rest. Fully illustrated throughout, we hear from Eric Harrison how Giggs caught the eye of United's scouts as a youngster, and the work done that culminated in him becoming the leading light of the famous Class of 92. Senior players from that era, such as Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce, recall the impact he made when he was promoted to the first team, just as the club began its incredible reign of success under Alex Ferguson. After picking up the League Cup in 1992, Giggs went on to win a record-breaking 13 league titles, two Champions League medals, and many other honours in a career that would stretch to 963 appearances for United. His resilience and longevity amazed all who looked on, as he continued to play at the top level past his 40th birthday. And when David Moyes left the club, he was the natural replacement as interim manager, rallying the club to reclaim its roots. Now retired as a player, Giggs is about to begin a new role as assistant to Louis van Gaal.

Ryan Giggs first played for Manchester United in the season before the Premiership began; back when Bryan Robson was still captain. He took possession of United's left wing and never loosened his grip. Over a fourteen year career so far, he's seen them all come and go: Cantona, Schmeichel, Beckham and the rest. Sir Alex Ferguson said of Giggs 'I knew we had an outstanding talent when we gave him his debut.' That was back in 1991, but it remains as true in 2005 as it ever was. Giggs has been a pivotal figure in United's dominance of the Premiership. There have been rivals but no other team can match the their sustained record of success over recent years. And Giggs is the only player to have played in all eight of those title winning campaigns. Off the pitch, Ryan Giggs has always closely guarded his private life. But here he opens up for the first time, sharing details of the sometimes turbulent childhood that shaped him and the relationships that have mattered to him to reveal the man behind the famous number 11 red shirt. One thing seems clear: the Old Trafford crowd will be singing 'Giggs will tear you apart again!' for a few years yet ...

WINNER OF THE FOOTBALL BOOK OF THE YEAR AT THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR 'This football book is about something even more important than the "beautiful game"; it is a story of the human spirit.' - Mick Hume, The Times Adrian Doherty was not a typical footballer. For one thing, he was blessed with extraordinary talent. Those who played alongside and watched him in the Manchester United youth team in the early 1990s insist he was as good as Ryan Giggs - possibly even better. Giggs, who played on the opposite wing, says he is inclined to agree. Doherty was also an eccentric - by football standards, at least. When his colleagues went to Old Trafford to watch the first team on Saturday afternoons, he preferred to take the bus into Manchester to go busking. He wore second-hand clothes, worshipped Bob Dylan, read about theology and French existentialism and wrote songs and poems. One team-mate says "it was like having Bob Dylan in a No 7 shirt". On his 17th birthday, Doherty was offered a five-year contract - unprecedented for a United youngster at that time - and told by Alex Ferguson that he was destined for stardom. But what followed over the next decade is a tale so mysterious, so shocking, so unusual, so amusing but ultimately so tragic, that you are left wondering how on earth it has been untold for so long. The stories of Doherty's contemporaries, that group of Manchester United youngsters who became known as the "Class of '92", are well known. Giggs ended up as the most decorated player in United's history; David Beckham became the most recognisable footballer on the planet; Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and others are household names. The story you don't know is about the player who, having had the world at his feet, died the day before his 27th birthday following an accident in a canal in Holland.

Who can forget the FA Cup semi-final against reigning Double winners Arsenal, when Ryan Giggs scored an amazing solo effort in extra time to see his team through to Wembley? Then there was United's stunning last-day triumph to take the Premier League title. Has there ever been a greater captain's performance than the Roy Keane-inspired comeback against Juventus that took United to the Champions League final? And, of course, the final itself was the ultimate in footballing fairytales, as the Reds scored two goals in added time to snatch the trophy from Bayern Munich. No wonder the 1998-99 season still excites United fans everywhere. It was a story just waiting to be told in depth for the first time ever. Now, in this comprehensive account of that unique campaign, the authors have spoken to the players, the backroom staff and the fans to discover just what it was like to be a part of it all. The Impossible Treble tells the story from the inside, with players recalling the key moments that defined a season and created a legacy that lives on to this day. It was football drama at its best; this is football writing at its most compelling.
