LoveReading View on My Manchester United Years

The long awaited autobiography of Bobby Charlton kicks off (excuse the pun) with Volume 1 and his years at Manchester United. This covers the lows with the tragedy of the Munich air disaster in 1958 and the highs with the thrill of winning the 1968 European Cup final. There are plenty of triumphs, losses and anecdotes for Charlton to recall, and the love he has for the club and the game is evident in every page.

My Manchester United Years Synopsis

Bobby Charlton is Manchester United through and through. He was a member of the original 'Busby Babes' and has devoted his career to the club, playing in 754 games over 17 years. During that period, he won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law, suffered devastating defeats and was involved in one of the greatest football tragedies of all time. Here, for the very first time, he tells the story of those United years. With his beloved Reds, he tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three first division championships and in 1968, he reached the pinnacle of club success, winning the European Cup. Inevitably, such highs are balanced with no less dramatic lows, such as the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss which followed only weeks after the horrors of the Munich Air disaster, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan. He is one of the true gentlemen of football and the legacy that Bobby Charlton gives to United is beyond compare.
