9780956840950: If the Kids are United

An hilarious account of a Manchester United fan’s 18-year long quest to get his hands on a FA Cup final ticket. Along the way witnessing some of the most momentous events in late 20th century football history – the last days of the terraces, the Hillsborough disaster and the rise of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United. Part Kes, part Boys from the Blackstuff, it also paints a vivid portrait of working-class culture - from punk, the miner's strike, unemployment to MaDchester and Brit-pop. 2015 - NOW REVISED, ADDED TO AND UPDATED. 'One look, won over' ***** Four Four Two **** Total Football 'A great read' 4/5 Glory Glory Man United (MUFC official magazine) ‘For younger fans, there is an intoxicating account of the run-in to Fergie's first title triumph in 1993, while older fans will relish exhilarating memories of United in the 70's, a decade of Cup finals and cock-ups. Equally entertaining is Hill's witty and often poignant portrayal of a youth spent in a declining mining community...Impassioned and bleak but also hilarious.’ Manchester UNITED (the official MUFC magazine) See the great reviews for this book here- www.manutdbooks.com

About the Author :

Tony Hill hails from Jacksdale, an old mining village on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, deep in D.H. Lawrence country. The world famous writer used to come dancing in Tony's village, where he had a great time, until, allegedly, getting knocked out for not supporting a local team. This is mentioned in Tony's books If the Kids are United and The Palace and the Punks. One of the last authors to be published by Victor Gollancz (before the Orion takeover), his - Kes evoking - book If the Kids are United was called 'the working-class Fever Pitch,' and received 5 and 4 star reviews. A punk writer, his style is fast paced and spontaneous.

Review :

'A witty insight into the loneliness of the long-distance red. Like Hill's life, the book is balanced between two worlds - the very real world of Jacksdale, and the almost mythical world of Old Trafford, which haunts the young Hill's mind much in the same way as Atlantis must have menaced the infant Captain Nemo. And while it's hard to describe villages like Jacksdale without straying into parody, Hill describes his village and his family with wit and pathos.' ***** Four Four Two **** Total Football 'A great read' 4/5 Glory Glory Man United (MUFC official magazine) 'For younger fans, there is an intoxicating account of the run-in to Fergie's first title triumph in 1993, while older fans will relish exhilarating memories of United in the 70's, a decade of Cup finals and cock-ups. Equally entertaining is Hill's witty and often poignant portrayal of a youth spent in a declining mining community...Impassioned and bleak but also hilarious.' Manchester UNITED (the official MUFC magazine) 'Hill can be funny, but really finds his voice in harrowing recollections of the Hillsborough tragedy.'
