Football in the 1950s was a far cry from the game that we are familiar with today. This book will take you back to the halcyon days of yesteryear and recalls the mixed fortunes of Manchester United during the 1950's.

For many, Saturday morning meant putting in a shift at work, with the sound of the 12 o'clock hooters signalling a mad dash for the exit, an even quicker bite to eat and then off to the match.

Games were written into the history of the clubs with incidents, and indeed complete 90 minutes, being narrated from father to son as the tradition of supporting a particular club was handed down through the generations.

The 1950s brought mixed fortunes for Man Utd. It was a decade that saw Matt Busby having to rebuild the team post-war period and his assistant, Jimmy Murphy, forced into hauling the club back from the brink of despair following the Munich air disaster.

This book will take you back to those halcyon days of yesteryear, bringing to life those thrilling encounters and recalling the exploits of players who were to become legends in the history of Manchester United Football Club.
