Product description

Who can forget the FA Cup semi-final against reigning Double winners Arsenal, when Ryan Giggs scored an amazing solo effort in extra time to see his team through to Wembley? Then there was United's stunning last-day triumph to take the Premier League title. Has there ever been a greater captain's performance than the Roy Keane-inspired comeback against Juventus that took United to the Champions League final? And, of course, the final itself was the ultimate in footballing fairytales, as the Reds scored two goals in added time to snatch the trophy from Bayern Munich. No wonder the 1998-99 season still excites United fans everywhere. It was a story just waiting to be told in depth for the first time ever. Now, in this comprehensive account of that unique campaign, the authors have spoken to the players, the backroom staff and the fans to discover just what it was like to be a part of it all. The Impossible Treble tells the story from the inside, with players recalling the key moments that defined a season and created a legacy that lives on to this day. It was football drama at its best; this is football writing at its most compelling.
