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.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-28-at-14.18.43-297x400Fergie’s Fledglings

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.’

The Guardian

‘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.’

The Story of Manchester United in Division Two

“74/75” is a forthcoming book chronicling the events of Manchester United’s infamous season in Division Two.

Written by Wayne Barton with former Man Utd boss Tommy Docherty, the book takes a week by week look back through the eyes of the players at the time and in contemporary recollections.

Also included in the book are contributions from Alex Stepney, Martin Buchan, Sammy McIlroy, Lou Macari and the late Brian Greenhoff.

The Independent ran an interview with Tommy Docherty where the book was mentioned – you can read it here.

 

‘Wayne Barton has already built a reputation as the leading writer on the period in Manchester United’s history between Busby and Ferguson which in many ways is the most fascinating of all, as the club strived to make it back to the top. The story of the 1974/75 season will not be familiar to many younger fans but this book – published 30 years on from that remarkable campaign – is an essential read; full of detailed research and insight into a campaign which arguably revealed even more of the United spirit than the glory years did.’ -The Independent
