Fergies Finest CoverABOUT THE BOOK

Sir Alex Ferguson retired as manager of Manchester United on Wednesday 8th May 2013.  We will never see his like again.

He is the most successful manager in the history of English football. During his 27 year reign, United won – including Charity/ Community Shields – an eye-watering 38 trophies, including 13 league championships. And over this period, fans have been lucky enough to have witnessed some of the greatest moments, the greatest players, and the greatest teams in Manchester United’s long, proud history.

In between Fergie’s taking over from Ron Atkinson in 1986 and his retirement in 2013, he handed over 185 players their United debuts. Fans have witnessed global superstars, and players who’ve risen up through the United ranks. They’ve seen big-hearted players who’ll give everything for the team, and skilled wizards who are individually streets ahead of the rest.

But which players deserve to be ranked as the greatest ever in the Ferguson era?

Who makes the final cut, and who misses out?

How do Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona, Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Dwight Yorke, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Michael Carrick, Jaap Stam, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Gary Neville, and Andy Cole fare when it comes to the selection of the ultimate ‘Team Fergie’?

Containing interviews with the ex-United hero Norman Whiteside, Ken Loach (director of Looking for Eric), poet John Hegley, United fanzine editor Scott the Red, and The Sun’s Manchester United correspondent Neil Custis, this book considers the leading contenders for each position in Sir Alex Ferguson’s greatest ever x11.

    AJ, This looks like a wonderful book. I’ve sent the link to my friend who loves the team. I am out of town and can’t get to my passwords to post a reply on your blog but here’s what I was going to write if you want to post it from me.

    AJ, Sounds like a bestseller as well as a labor of love. Marilyn Baron
