Description

Since the start of the Premier League era one club more than any other has dominated: Manchester United. In 2007-08, having won the title the previous season, United went in search of even greater things, bringing in new talent such as Anderson, Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Carlos Tevez to back up established stars such as Ferdinand, Giggs, Ronaldo and Rooney. Once the new players bedded in, United went on a great run of success, with the goals flying in from all corners and the defence proving to be their best ever in the top division. They surged back up to the top of the table during a fabulous autumn that had Sir Alex claiming it could be 'the strongest squad' he'd had in over 21 years at Old Trafford. The Premier League title was secured on the last day of the season, with the final goal coming from Ryan Giggs on the day he equalled Bobby Chalrton's appearance record for the club. In this fascinating and revealing insight into the club, all the key figures relive the highlights of their season and explain what really went on behind the scenes to create a wonderful and enduring account of the most important events in the campaign that climaxed with the Champions League final in Moscow, when everything hinged on a tense penalty shoot-out before United finally overcame Chelsea to become European champions for the third time.show more
