MANCHESTER UNITED OPUS - "ICONS" LIMITED EDITION 

No. 62 of 500   

Extremely Rare and Heavyweight Collectors Tome on Manchester United

"Getting involved with the production of this extraordinary Opus has evoked some great and poignant memories. Younger fans often have difficulty feeling a connection with the club's past and I think that the United Opus's mix of rare pictures, interviews and stats is among the best ways I've come across to bring this past to life" Sir Bobby Charlton.

 

It's the amazing story of a football club founded in 1878, established by an ordinary group of railway workers and taken on an unbelievable passage to the pinnacle of world football.

The Opus includes the story of the disastrous loss of Sir Matt Busby's inimitable Busby Babes in the 1958 Munich tragedy, his return from a near-death accident, the formulation of a new team, convincing them of their talents, which a decade later culminated in European Cup success. This spread the story of Manchester United to a global audience, created a legacy for any top flight football manager to follow, propelled Busby to football notoriety and provided Manchester United with fans all across the globe.

Years on the football rollercoaster left Manchester United fans hoping that eventually they would usurp Busby’s achievements. In 1999 Sir Alex Ferguson finally delivered the goods and with the famous “Treble”, rewrote the history books and set new benchmarks for any football manager in the future, his success continues to this day.

The United Opus is the greatest tribute to an unbelievable football club. This book relates the story with more passion and feeling than any other, four hundred thousand words and two thousand pictures portrayed on the largest template (37 kilos, 850 pages, each nearly two foot square) in essence the biggest football book ever produced. It pulls together pictures by the best football photographers, in conjunction with input from “Red” stars and words by some of the best football writers in the business. The Opus succeeds in putting the reader nearer to Manchester United than they have probably ever been before; it is without doubt the Ultimate Collectors book.
