The Manchester United matchday programme is a goldmine of history, culture and information on the storied history of the club, and an entity with which every United fan, no matter their age, will be familiar. Pulling together the most memorable, important and fascinating excerpts spanning more than a century of content, United Review is the quintessential distillation of the club’s history as told through this fascinating medium. As both a source of information on matches and fixtures, and vital statistics on the club through the ages, the programme also became a way for the club’s leadership to speak to supporters directly, examined in depth in a chapter on the ‘Manager’s Notes’ segment. Beginning with Scott Duncan’s Christmas greeting in the 1930s and evolving through Sir Matt Busby’s choice to write directly to fans and all the way to Sir Alex Ferguson’s prolific use of the programme to speak to the club’s legions of supporters during his time at the helm. Including columns from regular contributors over the years, guest interviews with great players and other content including cartoons and front covers, this is the ultimate illustrated history of the Manchester United Matchday Programme, a trip down memory lane for supporters of some ages, a valuable history lesson for others, and an essential addition to any United fan’s collection.
