Tommy Docherty books
Tommy Docherty Books
Docherty took over as manager of United in 1972. He brought an exciting style of football to the club. His attacking formation won the fans over and Old Trafford was buzzing again. Sadly in 1974, he couldn't stop the team from the drop to the second division, but only a season later, the Reds were in the top flight again and The Doc led his team out in the 1976 FA Cup Final. Although there was heartache with a shock defeat to Southampton, the following year in 1977, United beat Liverpool in the FA Cup final. Only two months later, Docherty would be sacked as the boss of United for having an affair with the physio's wife.
Tommy Doc by David Tossell

Tommy Doc
By David Tossell Publishers Mainstream 2013
This book is subtitled "The Controversial and Colourful Life of One of Football's Most Dominant Personalities" and that suggests that the content will dig deep into the many faces of the Doc. We haven't yet seen a copy but it does get excellent reviews.
Docs Devils by Sean Egan

By Sean Egan Publishers Cherry Red Books 2010

The only manager since the War to see his team relegated but he bounced back with typical flair to create a chapter which United fans will long remember and cherish. An excellent, detailed book.

The Doc - Hallowed Be Thy Game

The Doc - Hallowed Be Thy Game
By Tommy Docherty Publishers Headline 2006
The Doc' is one of the most colourful characters in football. Always outspoken and honest, headlines have followed him throughout his career. He achieved success on the pitch with Preston and Scotland but it is as a manager that he secured his place in football history. The remark that he has had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus cannot be disputed: fourteen teams in four different countries. He resigned from Chelsea; he was sacked by Manchester United within two weeks of winning the 1977 FA Cup and at Derby he became embroiled in a bitter legal dispute. Now, for the first time, the Doc tells all about his life in football and those he has shared it with - Shankly, Busby, Clough, Ramsey, Stein. This is a story like no other, from one of the biggest personalities of the game. Released in October 2006.
