The history of any football club boils down to one thing: great matches; be it a significant win, a great performance, a notable debut, an incredible moment or a disastrous defeat, the big games and historic turning points are what supporters remember. The Making of a Football Dynasty tells the story of one hundred of Manchester United’s most significant games and traces the birth and growth of the club from its humble origins as a railway works team to the biggest football club in the world.
John’s selection of games are not in chronological order but follow themes that have contributed to the United DNA that has made the club the biggest name in the game: exciting football, legendary players, the oldest and most successful youth system in the world and the club’s ability to bounce back from tragedy and adversity. Volume One includes the first fifty games which tell the story of United’s rise from near bankruptcy to become the only English club to complete the full set of major trophies.
