The 1996-97 season was Manchester United's fifth season in the Premier League, and their 22nd consecutive season in the top division of English football. United clinched the Premier League title with 75 points - placing them seven points ahead of the three teams below them; Newcastle United, Arsenal and Liverpool.They also reached the European Cup semi-finals, bowing out to eventual winners Borussia Dortmund of Germany, after losing both legs 1-0. Earlier in the competition, they had lost at home in Europe for the first time, with a 1-0 defeat to Fenerbahçe of Turkey in the group stage. Their defence of the FA Cup ended in the Fourth Round replay with a 1-0 defeat to Wimbledon, while their bid for success in the League Cup was short lived as they bowed out to eventual winners Leicester City in the Fourth Round.New signing Ole Gunnar Solskjær was one of the biggest breakthrough stars in the 1996-97 Premier League season, with 19 goals in all competitions, making him the club's top goalscorer. Twenty-two-year-old midfielder David Beckham clinched the PFA Young Player of the Year award in the same season he won his first England cap. Solskjær's fellow Norwegian, Ronny Johnsen, proved himself as a fine successor to Steve Bruce in central defence, but £3.5 million Czech winger Karel Poborský failed to win a regular first team place and was one of the Premier League's biggest disappointments that season. Jordi Cruyff, son of Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, was similarly disappointing, failing to win a regular first team place despite being able to play in midfield, attack or on the left wing.Just before the start of the season, winger Lee Sharpe left the club after eight years to sign for Leeds United in a £4.5 million deal. Earlier in the summer, captain Steve Bruce had departed to Birmingham City on a free transfer after almost a decade at Old Trafford, while Paul Parker left on a free transfer after his final two seasons at the club had been plagued by injury and the loss of his place in the team to Gary Neville.The season ended with a major shock as Eric Cantona announced his retirement from playing, prompting manager Alex Ferguson to search for a new striker. The search ended with the £3.5 million capture of Tottenham Hotspur and England 31-year-old Teddy Sheringham.

The official Manchester United celebration of Sir Alex Ferguson's 25 years as the club's record-breaking manager Not only celebrating what Sir Alex Ferguson has achieved at United, this fascinating book also seeks to explain just how he has gone about creating this remarkable dynasty, constantly rebuilding the team and driving them forward to yet more glory. When Ferguson joined Manchester United in November 1986, he came with a great track record from his time in charge of Aberdeen. But reestablishing the Reds as the most successful club in the land was an enormous task. Famously, he knew he had to knock Liverpool off their perch. At the dawn of the Premier League era, in 1992-93, United had gone 26 years without being champions, but that season Ferguson finally led the club to title success and in 2010-11 he finally achieved the record-breaking 19th title. On top of that, Sir Alex has led Manchester United to two Champions League victories and many other trophies. In an era when most managers are lucky if they last two years, Sir Alex's achievement of lasting 25 years at the very top is truly astonishing. This book is the club's fitting tribute to his career.

The 2001-2002 season sees Sir Alex Ferguson leading Manchester United in an effort to win their eight Premiership title in its tenth season as well to reclaim the European Champions' League Cup trophy in his final campaign at Old Trafford. With the arrival of prolific Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, and highly-regarded Argentinian midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron (for a British transfer record of about [pound]25 million), plus an extra effort on the part of all for Fergie's last season, United will be aiming to atone for their quarter-final exit from the final stages of the Champions' League competition last year. In the Premiership, the Red Devils will be competing against those desperate to prevent them claiming a fourth consecutive title - with Liverpool and Arsenal probably being United's most dangerous rivals. Match by match and month by month, this is the ultimate record of the 2001-2002 season at Old Trafford, which features a fully illustrated match report on every single game played, full match statistics, monthly progress reports and a full set of statistics at the end of the campaign, as well as an overview of the whole season. Juniors and the Manchester United Academy teams - in effect results for every single game played by the club at every level. Also included is information on travel arrangements and supporters' clubs. There are official end-of-season statements from both the chairman and the manager, which also look forward to the possibilities for the next campaign.

Despite myriad popular and journalistic expositions, up to this point there have been virtually no academic discussions of the Manchester United phenomenon. This anthology represents the first concerted academic examination of Manchester United F.C. in its current guise as a widely followed and highly emblematic sporting institution. Bringing together respected academics from an array of disciplinary backgrounds these essays each interrogate various related dimensions of the Manchester United world. The primary aim of this collection is to illustrate how the structure and experience of Manchester United is implicated in broader societal shifts, within which the boundary between cultural and commercial concerns have become increasingly indivisible. The chapters are presented within five thematic sections: 1 Becoming United 2 Economy United 3 Embodied United 4 Local United 5 Global United
