From the publisher:
Manchester United is the most famous club in football and its official matchday programme, United Review, is the most recognisable match publication around. Quite simply, a trip to Old Trafford wouldn’t be the same without it.
Long before clubs had websites, television channels and social media accounts there was ‘the programme’ – the only place to hear the official voice of the team you followed. For generations of supporters it was the only way to hear directly from the chairman and manager, an opportunity to get to know the players, an insight into the opposition and your primary source for ticket information. It was a must-have reference book, an enjoyable source of entertainment and a treasured matchday souvenir all rolled into one.Through its pages, the official programme of Manchester United has charted the club’s glorious triumphs, painful lows, celebrated its most famous players and managers, and, sadly, been forced to reflect on tragedy.
United Review: The illustrated history of Manchester United’s matchday programme charts the evolution of the club’s matchday publication from a simple team sheet in the days of Newton Heath to today’s 84-page glossy magazine which is still a vital part of the Old Trafford matchday experience.
This official book features stunning front covers, fascinating long-reads, columns from managerial greats including Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, interviews with United heroes like George Best, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo, stunning photography, cartoons and illustrations, and so much more. Selecting the most eye-catching content across over 140 years of the club programme, the book gives an illuminating insight into views from the time and provides many reminders of thrillingly unforgettable afternoons and evenings spent at the iconic Theatre of Dreams.
