This book follows the local railway works football team Newton Heath FC from it's inception when they had poor grounds, boycotted the FA Cup, fought to enter the Football League. All this happened before their first brush with bankruptcy and finding a saviour in J.H. Davies who not only changed their name to Manchester United but built a magnificient stadium. His choice of manager was Ernest Mangnall who took the team to winning two League titles and the FA Cup. During the First World War a manager emerged who not only started his own youth policy before his retirement through ill health, but handed a team of young players all from the amateur ranks to the next manager who after a couple of years in the doldrums while the younsters matured became a team that people wanted to watch. In 1931 bankruptcy threatened again and the players could not be paid but this heralded the start of a new era which included the official launching of the Youth Programme: a bombed out stadium and the rise of a great team.

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 will follow the club's extraordinary journey from its birth in the railway works of Newton Heath to its current status as the biggest club in world football. 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, and much more. But by drawing on the recollections of everyone from players and managers to fans and backroom staff, Jim will unearth enough new material to interest die-hard fans and casual supporters alike. This will be a fascinating history of a remarkable football club, by one of Britain's best-known and most popular sports writers.

Despite myriad popular and journalistic expositions, up to this point there have been virtually no academic discussions of the Manchester United phenomenon. This anthology represents the first concerted academic examination of Manchester United F.C. in its current guise as a widely followed and highly emblematic sporting institution. Bringing together respected academics from an array of disciplinary backgrounds these essays each interrogate various related dimensions of the Manchester United world. The primary aim of this collection is to illustrate how the structure and experience of Manchester United is implicated in broader societal shifts, within which the boundary between cultural and commercial concerns have become increasingly indivisible.

When the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company formed the Newton Heath L and YR Cricket and Football Club in 1878, they could have had no idea what it was they were starting. Renamed Manchester United in 1902 after financial problems, the new club would soon go on to win the league title and the FA Cup. It was just the beginning of one of the most remarkable and gripping stories in sport. This masterful account explains how United rose to success, and how the club recovered in the bomb-damaged aftermath of the Second World War under the brilliant guidance of Matt Busby. The loss of the core of the side in the Munich Air Disaster of February 1958 stunned a nation, and football fans around the world. But Busby recovered to build a new side around the talents of Best, Law and Charlton, becoming the first English side to win the European Cup in 1968. More recently, United have dominated English football under manager Sir Alex Ferguson, winning an incredible 19 Premier League titles, including a unique Treble in 1999. The incredible story of the Reds' success, the great stars from Billy Meredith over 100 years ago to Ferdinand, Giggs and Rooney today, are all featured in this essential volume. Packed with stunning photographs and all the facts and figures you could ever want to know, this is a book no United fan can afford to be without.

Manchester United's quest to win the European Cup was forged amidst the charred remains of an Elizabethan airliner that crashed on take-off at Munich's Riem Airport on 6 February 1958. Twenty-three people died in the tragedy, including eight of the famous Busby Babes. From that moment manager Matt Busby's goal of winning the European Cup became an obsession that permeated the whole club.Ten years after the Munich disaster, Busby achieved his dream when United - inspired by Bobby Charlton and George Best - beat Benfica 4-1 in extra time to lift the European Cup at Wembley. Some felt the ghosts of Munich were there to witness the club's joy. It seemed to be United's destiny finally to honour those who had lost their lives in pursuit of the gleaming silver trophy. But that triumph was to hang over the club for the next 31 years as United failed to regain those heights. Alex Ferguson's arrival spawned a flood of trophies, but the European Cup - by then known as the Champions League - remained elusively outside their grasp. Then came the last final of the twentieth century, against Bayern Munich in the towering splendour of Barcelona's Nou Camp, when United snatched a 2-1 victory from the jaws of defeat to complete the impossible Treble. Manchester United in Europe: Tragedy, Destiny, History recounts the course of those three European campaigns. Using first-hand accounts of the dramatic events, the book describes the sadness and the joy that have run through United's pursuit of European glory and considers the club's chances of ever repeating the European triumphs of the past.

On 6 February 1958, a plane took off from a snowy Munich airport carrying probably the finest club side the world has ever known. Moments later, the aircraft crashed, killing some of the most legendary names in British football. This book is dedicated to those players - Roger Byrne, Tommy Taylor, the mighty Duncan Edwards and the others whose lives were cut off in their prime - and their indomitable manager, Sir Matt Busby. Max Arthur has sought out all the players who survived the crash and spoken to the relatives and friends of those who died. From these interviews, sometimes serious but often humorous, he has captured their remarkable spirit and created a unique portrait of all the Busby Babes.

Richer Than God is an authoritative, provocative, investigative account of Manchester City's history, culminating in its transformation as Sheikh Mansour seeks to spend the formerly miserable Manchester club into the European elite. When Conn asked an American working in Abu Dhabi whether its economy had been at all affected by the global recession, he said: 'My friend, we're richer than God'. It is also a tale of innocence: that of a six-year-old boy transfixed by his sky-blue heroes, coming of age as a writer with the mature understanding that both his club and the game are businesses. Why should modern football continue to claim the unquestioning loyalty of fans, when there is so much in the game to question?

For Charlton Athletic Football Club supporters, their club will always be a part of their lives. A Charlton supporter since the mid-1960s, David Ramzan has seen some of the best and worst of times from playing in the old Second Division, dropping into the Third, ground sharing with local rivals, promotion to the First Division, then relegation and later promotion in the most dramatic final ever played at the home of English football. On a roller-coaster football journey, the club has always been an integral part of the local community, where organisations run by fans have grown alongside the club since it was first formed in 1905. In Charlton Athletic: A History produced with the assistance of members of the Former Players Association, the club, supporters groups and associated organisations David Ramzan charts the history of the South East London club and also those groups, whether independent or part of the establishment, that have made Charlton Athletic one of the most respected clubs in the world of football.
