About this title:

Synopsis: The rich history of Manchester United has never thrown up a more colorful character than Wilf McGuinness. There is virtually no emotion that he hasn't experienced during a lifetime in the game. Wilf has: played for his beloved United and his country at every level; won a championship medal with the Red Devils; suffered a cruel injury which cut short his career at the chronically premature age of 22; succeeded Sir Matt Busby as manager of Manchester United—and been sacked by the club to which he was so passionately devoted; lost all his hair, probably as a result of the shock of his demoralizing dismissal; played a key role in England's 1966 World Cup glory under Sir Alf Ramsey; and, coached at York, Hull and Bury, and in soccer outposts around the world—all without losing his exuberant outlook on life in general and football in particular. As Sir Alex Ferguson said: "There is never a dull moment with Wilf. There is no more cheerful man in football!" One of the original Busby Babes, Wilf grew up alongside the likes of Duncan Edwards and Bobby Charlton, and but for injury would have been aboard the plane which crashed at Munich, killing 23 people including eight of his team-mates and friends. Now for the first time he tells the full story of his incident-packed lifetime in the game, revealing the joy and the injustice, the sorrow and the controversy. Man and Babe is a moving tale of excitement, anguish, and redemption, with humor never very far from the surface. It includes more than 100 photographs from Wilf's personal collection, including the pre-Munich crash Busby Babes and exclusive pictures of Posh & Becks at the party to celebrate United's 1999 treble!

About the Author: Ivan Ponting has written more than 30 books on football, including Manchester United Player By Player, and has penned the autobiographies of Bill Foulkes and Gary Pallister. He also supplies obituaries to The Independent newspaper, and his joint effort with David Foot, entitled Sixty Summers: Somerset Cricket Since The War, won Best Cricket Book at the 2007 National Sporting Club awards.
