Description

With Lou Macari, Joe Jordan, Martin Buchan, Gordon Hill, Tommy Docherty, Gerry Daly, Sammy McIlroy, Jimmy Greenhoff, Jimmy Nicholl and Stuart Pearson Following the success of his books on United in the 1980s and '90s, Andy Mitten has travelled far and wide to track down ten of Manchester United's stars from 1970s - including Martin Buchan, Lou Macari, Sammy McIlroy, Gordon Hill, Gerry Daly, Joe Jordan, Jimmy Greenhoff - as well as The Doc himself, to open the door to the Old Trafford dressing room during one of the most enthralling eras in the history of England's greatest club. A highly respected journalist and editor of the influential United We Stand fanzine, Mitten has produced another book packed with brilliantly colourful anecdotes that transports the reader back to a time when the players were not highly paid, went to the pub after training and played hard on and off the pitch. His interviewees discuss not only cup final joys and disasters but also behind the scenes politics, sackings, relegation, hooliganism, bust ups and mad pranks. United! United! is an astonishingly candid and entertaining look at the decade when the Red Army and United's wingers went on the rampage from Northampton to Norwich, George Best went AWOL, four managers tried to fill Matt Busby's shoes and fans were fenced in.
