Starring Ron Atkinson, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best, Bobby Charlton
This unauthorized documentary on world-famous soccer team Manchester United takes viewers on a roller-coaster ride through the peaks and valleys of the "Man U" story?from the second division struggles of the 1920s and the Post-War glory days of Matt Busby?s reign, to the heart-rending tragedy of the Munich Air Disaster and the long haul back to the top with the help of Bobby Charlton and the sport?s first superstar, George Best. This film also covers the team's history with regulation, football hooligans, the disappointing form of flamboyant manager Ron Atkinson (whose sacking made way for Alex Ferguson) and the rise of the Red Devils. The brand equity and net worth of Manchester United has meant that some of the biggest names and global superstars of the game have played for this powerhouse football club. From Best to Charlton, Beckham to Ronaldo, the media can?t get enough of these talented and popular stars. With never-ending expansions at Old Trafford, its own TV station and a merchandising empire worth millions, Manchester United really does look set to take over the universe.
