The Forgotten Legends : Manchester United's Legends of a Bygone Era Hardback
Let us take a nostalgic trip back in time to the age of Harry Stafford, Charlie Roberts, Sandy Turnbull, Joe Spence, Johnny Carey and Jack Rowley.
These were the greats who made Manchester United great; legends for their immense contribution both on and off the pitch but now consigned to history.
There are no shrines or statues to these players at Old Trafford yet without them, other legends might never have emerged, indeed the club itself might not exist.
The Forgotten Legends brings to vivid life the careers of an elite set of footballers.
They had two things in common: all made their United debuts before the start of the Second World War and none of them have had their story told in print before.
HARRY STAFFORD -- The mysterious figure who saved Manchester United and then disappeared.
CHARLIE ROBERTS -- Manchester United's first great captain and founder of the PFA.
SANDY TURNBULL -- a figure who attracted controversy as easily as he did match winning goals.
JOE SPENCE -- United's only true great between the wars, a legend among the fans.
JOHNNY CAREY -- United's next great captain, leading the club back to glory.
JACK ROWLEY -- A prolific striker with a fearsome reputation on and off the pitch.
