One of the last youth players to be brought to the club by Sir Matt Busby, Brian Greenhoff spent eleven years at Old Trafford, during one of the most infamous periods in Manchester United's history. Signed as an apprentice just weeks after the legendary European Cup triumph of 1968, injuries prevented Brian making his debut senior appearance until 1973. When he did it was part of the only United side to have been relegated since the war. Nevertheless, Brian was named "Supporters' Player Of The Year" that season and went on to form an iconic defensive partnership with captain Martin Buchan as the club won the Second Division title before taking the top flight by storm under the flamboyant management of Tommy Docherty. Brian was man of the match in the treble-busting FA Cup Final of 1977 helping defeat fierce rivals Liverpool at Wembley. In "Greenhoff!", Brian shares his experiences of the famous youth policy of Busby and Jimmy Murphy, the players who did not make it, his fascinating relationship with Tommy Docherty and his struggle with Dave Sexton that brought an untimely end to his time at United.An England international, he also lifts the lid on his troubled times at Leeds and Rochdale and reveals the breakdown of the relationship with his brother James, one of the most famous footballing brothers in the history of the game. "Greenhoff!" is the story of one of the best loved players from a fascinating period of footballing history told with honesty and no little humour.
