COMPETITION: United! United!

Andy Mitten has given RoM a copy of his new book, “United! United!”, to give away to one of you lot. Following the books he has written about United players in the 80′s and 90′s, Andy has now spoken to a whole host of people associated with our club in the 70′s. Lou Macari, Martin Buchan and Tommy Docherty are amongst the people who give an excellent insight to what went on behind the scenes during that decade.

To win the book, simply retweet this.

    whats up ROMsters, still buzzing from Last night (Ole winning the league) so pardon me from going off topic. I’m sitting here thinking who else could come in for the gaffer after he retires. The gaffer celebrates 25 years this week i see him making it 30 in years but just barely, in fact truth be told i think less that that. 3-4 years max and the great man could call it a day, plenty of time for Ole to further establish himself. A good run in the champions league – what are the odds we’re pitted against them in the group stages and we qualify along with them or cause the monster of all upset by Knocking us out in the qualifying rounds – anyway i digress.
    Plenty of time to get experience in Europe.

    Funny some say he needs 10 years before we can even start thinking about it. Really? No chance SAF is at United for the next 10 years no fucking chance and you can tell he won’t be looking at a stop gap solution, he’d want someone in who is focused on leading us on to glory. I say let Ole handle is business in Norway for another season and one more club in Europe for a season – thats 3 years then hand him the key to the managers office

    Still think United would have won the league if the Doc had not been sacked. Played a great brand of attacking football and one of the reason why I chose United over City.

    Gorse Hill Red,

    If you read Keith Dewhurst’s excellent book on United ‘When You Put On A Red Shirt’ he holds the view that even though ‘The Doc’s’ United were exciting and attacking they would never have won the league, I tend to agree with him. Like his teams at Chelsea in the mid sixties they were young and played helter-skelter football but when they came up against teams tactically more astute they were found wanting- they had no plan B. Also ‘The Doc’ always seemed to fall out with older and wiser players which was often detremental to the team.He say if the United board had sanctioned the purchase of Peter Shilton he could have won the league – we’ll never know.But he did revive United and we certainly improved on the awful run and teams we had from 1969-74.

    Clit, I am mean Clint……fckin’ funny mate!

    Watching United in the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s was full of ups and downs. Being a United fan in the eighties and early nineties with Liverscum was always difficult……. Forest with Clough were always there and thereabouts back then.

    Being at the Camp Nou in 99′ was probably one of the greatest highlights of being a United fan……. The good ol’ TREBLE!!!!!

    Stumbling on las ramblas for 2 days singing with fellow United fans

    Must reads: Fergie’s, Keano, Cantona and Giggs life stories are great reads.
