Mick Duxbury played more times for Manchester United than any other player during the 1980s, clocking up nearly 400 appearances in a key era for the club which was full of entertainment and controversy, sowing the seeds of unprecedented success. Brought to United by Tommy Docherty, Duxbury played under three further managers at Old Trafford as the Red Devils continued their rebuilding after promotion back to Division One, on the cusp of the era which saw them become the most widely supported club in the world. Mick played in two FA Cup final victories and suffered several near misses as the club sought to break Liverpool's dominance. Duxbury tells the compelling story of an era of changing identity at United, sharing frank and honest opinions on the club's achievements, why they fell short and what he saw in Alex Ferguson that would ultimately bring the success he so badly craved.
Mick Duxbury played for Manchester United almost 400 times over 14 years at Old Trafford. An England international, he also played for Blackburn Rovers, Bradford City and Hong Kong. Today he is a teacher at Bolton School. Wayne Barton collaborated on Mick's autobiography, as he has with many top sportsmen, actors and musicians in the UK and USA.
