Présentation de l'éditeur

Sir Alex Ferguson was one of the greatest football managers of all time.

Over 26 years in charge of Manchester United, his passion for winning and tactical flair made them the most successful club in the Premier League. Under his guidance, United won an eye-watering 38 trophies, including 13 league championships.

But who were the greatest players of the Ferguson era?

Over 185 players debuted for United under Ferguson and more than 200 players wore the red jersey for Fergie.

They included legends of the modern game from David Beckham to Ryan Giggs, from Roy Keane to Bryan Robson, and from Eric Cantona to Cristiano Ronaldo.

But which were the Greatest Eleven?

Is Robin Van Persie the greatest striker? Or Ruud Van Nistelrooy?

Was Paul Scholes the best player in the heart of the midfield? Or Bryan Robson?

In this fascinating study, Andrew Kirby selects the ultimate 'Team Fergie'?

With interviews from football writers and former players, this book considers the leading contenders for each position in Sir Alex Ferguson’s First Eleven.

It is the one book that every Manchester United fan - and indeed every football supporter - will want to read.

Andrew J Kirby’s sports writing has featured in BBC Sport magazine, and on the Radio Five Live website. He has held a Manchester United season ticket for the entirety of the Sir Alex Ferguson reign at Old Trafford, and regularly follows the Reds across Europe and beyond.

He also writes award-winning crime fiction as AJ Kirby, and has published five novels including Sharkways and Paint This Town Red, which was shortlisted for the Guardian's Not the Booker Prize 2012.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.

Good book that covers all the main players in details; you might disagree with his decisions, but that's what these types of books are about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fergie's Finest: Exploring the Mystique of a Legend 14 mai 2013
Par Marilyn Baron - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The best sports writing transcends its 'genre' and becomes literature in its own right. Here in America, we have a tradition of excellent sports writing, particularly in baseball.

When I first heard the title of this book, "Fergie's Finest," I wondered if it was about Fergie, the Singer or Fergie, the Duchess of York, until I discovered it was about Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest football manager of all time. But I picked it up with some degree of interest as I have friends in the UK who love to talk about soccer, and especially Manchester United. My knowledge about sports is limited, but I've read most of Andrew Kirby's fiction and I'm a big fan. As a matter of fact, in my book, Andrew Kirby is a literary rock star. So I thought I'd give it a try. And I have to admit the book blew me away. Though some sections were for the more knowledgeable football fan, I found most of the book to be an engaging read. It was like a guide book to one of the most famous sports teams in the world, and it explained the reasons why certain players, certain names, have entered folklore. It was clearly excellently researched, passionately written, and was at times amusing (particularly in the explanations of the fan songs). It explored the history and culture of this great institution from a variety of angles - and not always the expected ones. There were great quotes from the film director Ken Loach, and from authors and poets alike. I enjoyed comments from ex-Manchester United players and from supporters throughout the world and the writer's description of the "Where were you when?" phenomenon surrounding Fergie's recent retirement announcement. But it was the point of view of the author I particularly enjoyed. Andrew J Kirby writes in a very accessible way, but at times, when he describes a famous goal, or why fans love a certain player, it becomes poetry.

When you support a sports team, their history intertwines with your history, and in this book, Kirby approaches the aspect of why sports matter so much to people very well. In my book, Fergie's finest is writing at its finest.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Phil Jones 26 juin 2013

It's hard to believe the author's selection proces, when he picks out Phil Jones as one of the potentially greatest centre backs of Ferguson's reign.

Phil Jones has played a total of 46(!) matches for Man Utd, many of these as right back or midfielder. Yes, there is potential, but players like Silvestre, Evans, O'Shea, McGrath, Johnsen, Blanc, Berg, Smalling and Pique have all played better (and more) games as centre back than Phil Jones. If Phil Jones is picked on "potential" I would say that Blanc and Pique could be picked on what they achieved either earlier or later in their career. Jonny Evans has been a great centre back the last few years.

I know Ferguson said that Jones could be the best Man Utd-player ever, but let the young man prove himself first, ok?

I didn't bother reading the rest after Phil Jones was mentioned.
