Interview with the authors

Over the last few weeks both Steve and Tony were interviewed about ‘Sons of United’ and asked how the idea to write the publication first came about, their favourite pieces within the book, the eighteen-year long process to finally get it published and what makes it so special to Manchester United fans around the world.

Watch the full interview and also see the magnitude of ‘Sons of United’ as they walk you through the 576 pages that make this book something truly unique.


Book sales reach 700 copies sold!

Since the book was first published in December 2012 we have been delighted with the response from United fans across the globe, including Scandinavia, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Vietnam, across Europe and even Mongolia! Feedback to date has been magnificent and includes glowing reviews in the Daily Mail, Manchester Evening News and Backpass magazine.

“Received my copy today – what an amazing piece of work! Worth every penny, and more. In-depth doesn’t even begin to describe it…fantastic!”

Priced at £40.00 plus p&p you can purchase your copy through the “Sons of United” website and your book will be delivered to your door. Due to the physical size and weight of the book, postage costs are higher than the average book you would buy on Amazon or through other online book sellers. Additionally, due to the limited quantities printed, delivery companies have been reluctant to give us any meaningful discount.

Thus there are four options to choose from when you purchase the book:

UK purchase with personal collection (£40.00)
UK purchase plus postage and packing (£49.00)
Ireland, France, Belgium, Germany, Holland (£53.50)
All other countries (£58.50)

Over the coming weeks Tony and Steve will have copies of Sons of United available for purchase before home games at Old Trafford, Reserve games at Altrincham and at Carrington on Saturday mornings. With the end of the season just around the corner, this will be your last opportunity to obtain a copy of the book first hand and obviously save on postage costs.

We realise that while postage may be prohibitive to some overseas supporters, the digital version will remain available as a download to your computer, laptop, ipad or other tablet for £19.99. We plan to make the digital version available through i-bookstore in the near future but unfortunately Kindle costs are too high.

We are confident that you will find “Sons of United” a unique history of the greatest football club in the world.

We would like to thank everyone who has purchased a copy to date and remind all others that the book is strictly limited to 1500 copies. Once they’ve gone, they’ve gone!
