Merlin – The Autobiography of Gordon Hill
With an association in the professional game since 1973, Gordon Hill shot to stardom when he was bought for a bargain fee of £70,000 by Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty. From the wing, Hill scored at a prolific rate – a great goalscorer and a scorer of great goals – which showed just why he had been given the nickname ‘Merlin’ by adoring Millwall fans.
In 1978, he was shockingly sold to Derby County by then United manager Dave Sexton, and later that year he suffered a knee injury that had a devastating effect on his career. Hill recovered to enjoy a resurgence in the North American game where he became a legend and still resides today.

Fergie’s Fledglings is the most comprehensive and unique record of its kind, telling the story of Manchester United’s successful and prolific youth system through the eyes and words of the players who experienced it.
The most prominent ‘Fledglings’ of the first wave in the late 1980s describe the foundations and how Sir Alex Ferguson tried to work from the blueprint of the vision Sir Matt Busby had for Manchester United; members of the class of ’92 give unique insight on how and why that team achieved so much success, and a whole host of names share how Ferguson managed to move with the times with youth development as United evolved into the biggest club in the world.
Stories of success, near miss, circumstance and personal tragedy are told in this most thorough, chronological walk through the most successful era in English football management history.
‘No other football club in the world has a more productive conveyor belt of young talent than Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson was at the heart of it all and now we hear the stories about what it was really like for Fergie’s Fledglings. A vibrant book and an essential for any supporter of England’s most successful club.’
‘United supporters will love this book. Everyone knows the stories of Beckham, Giggs, Scholes and the Nevilles. This is the fascinating and extremely well researched story of some of those who did not quite make the grade at Old Trafford. The chapter on Jules Maiorana is particularly compelling.’
