MANCHESTER UNITED'S GREATS OF A BYGONE AGE

BY CHARBEL BOUJAOUDE, IAIN McCARTNEY & FRANK COLBERT

PUBLISHED: 15th OCTOBER 2013     SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £12 (inc UK p&p)

SEE THE FORGOTTEN LEGENDS BOOK LAUNCH - GRANADA REPORTS

Let us take a nostalgic trip back in time to the age of Harry Stafford, Charlie Roberts, Sandy Turnbull, Joe Spence, Johnny Carey and Jack Rowley. These were the greats who made Manchester United great; legends for their immense contribution both on and off the pitch but now consigned to history.

There are no shrines or statues to these players at Old Trafford yet without them, other legends might never have emerged, indeed the club itself might not exist. The Forgotten Legends brings to vivid life the careers of an elite set of footballers. They had two things in common: all made their United debuts before the start of the Second World War and none of them have had their story told in print before.

HARRY STAFFORD - The mysterious figure who saved Manchester United and then disappeared.

CHARLIE ROBERTS - Manchester United's first great captain and founder of the PFA.

SANDY TURNBULL - a figure who attracted controversy as easily as he did vital match winning goals.

JOE SPENCE - United's only true great between the wars, a legend among the pop side fans who would urge his team-mates to ‘Give It To Joe’.

JOHNNY CAREY - United's next great captain, leading the club back to glory with a style all his own.

JACK ROWLEY - A prolific striker with a fearsome reputation on the pitch and in the dressing room.

THE FORGOTTEN LEGENDS IS AVAILABLE FOR IPAD, NOOK OR KINDLE - JUST SELECT FROM THE MENU ON THE LEFT.
