About this book

Why was Manchester United's manager suspended in I926?

Who tried to burn Old Trafford down?  

Which player was unwittingly involved in an impersonation case?

Who were Newton Heath's wackiest characters?

Red Tales is a book that answers these questions as it relays mysterious stories from Manchester United's past.

It casts a better light on the less celebrated managers of the pre-war era, offers a detailed look at the other scandal of the Great War, provides compelling new revelations about the winding up of Newton Heath in 1902, and revives the forgotten escapades of a 'hefty' striker. a 'heftier' midfielder, and a love-struck player. And let's not forget the specifics of what qualifies as possibly the worst match in United's history.
