Book Review – The Big Book of United: Goalscorers and Champions

There are lots of books written about Manchester United on subjects like great players, the history, rivalries, classic matches and season reviews. There have been some really great books written on these subjects but also some really poor efforts as well. This Christmas, I was given one of the latest books to be written on the club – ‘The Big Book of United: Goalscorers and Champions’ and it definitely fell into the category of a really good book.

This book is not an official publication from Manchester United, but that should not put off people from reading the book. It is written by a number of Manchester United supporters of various ages, backgrounds and length of time supporting the club. By doing this, it gives a very broad view of the support which the club has and a greater insight into the club through the fans’ eyes. The title of the book mentions ‘Goalscorers’ and ‘Champions’ and the book delivers on that, with a great insight into these subjects. United’s top goalscorers each season get an indepth analysis in the book, along with other goalscorers for the club. Each of United’s League Championship winning seasons are also well analysed in the book too. The book goes way beyond its title though and describes a lot more about the club, its history and also its fans. For that reason, the book will appeal to a wide range of United’s support. Not only is the book a great read, but it is also a great reference book that fans can return to for information and to re-read at any time. It is definitely a book that I would recommend to fellow United fans to read if they are interested in the history of Manchester United.
