When George Best, a dark-haired skinny teenager from Belfast, made his United debut in the autumn of 1963, he was joining a club still recovering from the horrors of Munich. Among his team-mates were goalscorer supreme Denis Law and England midfielder Bobby Charlton. Together they would combine to help United to win two league titles and a long-awaited European Cup as the Reds came to personify all that was most exciting about the Swinging Sixties. By 1968, all three men would have been honoured as European Footballer of the Year - the only time three winners of that award have lined up in the same side.
In David Meek's compelling portrait of the United Trinity, he not only reveals their different characters and what made them so successful on the pitch, he also speaks to many of their team-mates to find out what it was like playing in the same side and researches contemporary reports to assess how they were viewed at the time. Having reported on their entire careers together, Meek has a unique insight into what made Best, Law and Charlton stand out as the truly special players they were.
