Bryan Robson books
Bryan Robson Books
In October 1981, Manchester United signed Bryan Robson for £1.5m, a record breaking transfer fee at the time. Robbo instantly became a huge favourite with the United fans with his hard tackling, excellent shooting, his amazing work rate and his incredible leadership. In 1983, he lead the reds to a 4-0 victory over Brighton in the FA Cup Final (he scored twice). He also lifted the trophy in 1985 and 1990. His quest was to lift the league trophy and finally in 1993, Captain Marvel's dream came true as United clinched their first title in 26 years. In 1994, he left United to become Middlesbrough's manager. Robson will always be one of the best United players of all time, a fantastic footballer.
Robbo: My Autobiography
By Bryan Robson Publishers Hodder & Stoughton 2006
'Captain Marvel' tells his unforgettable story as one of football's superstars - from life as a Manchester United and England legend, to masterminding football's 'greatest escape' as manager of West Bromwich Albion. Bryan Robson is widely remembered as a fearless and inspirational player and captain, both for club and country, whose presence lifted team-mates and intimidated opponents. At his peak, he was acknowledged as the most complete midfield player in the country, and played at the highest level despite a series of devastating injuries. He began his playing career at West Bromwich Albion, then moved to Manchester United in 1981 for a then record British transfer fee of £1.5 million. He soon became captain, and enjoyed regular Cup success, eventually winning the Championship. He also won 90 caps for England, 65 of them as captain. His autobiography reveals a fascinating insight into his days with the England and United camps and characters such as Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker, Roy Keane and Alex Ferguson. He puts the record straight on the 'drink culture' that Ferguson sought to stamp out at United, and describes his pain when he discovered he was surplus to the manager's requirements. He candidly reflects on the highs and lows of his football life, and discusses incidents on the pitch as well as some of the clashes that have happened behind the scenes.

Champions Again - My Story of United's Unique Double
By Bryan Robson Publishers Harper Collins Willow 1994
Winning the FA Premier League championship in 1993 was a personal milestone for Bryan Robson - the conclusion of a 17-year quest. Yet a year later Manchester United had not only successfully defended their title, but had also won the FA Cup. In this book Robson chronicles an extraordinary year. It starts with the celebrations which followed the 1993 success, but for the first time in his career Robson's position was threatened by the arrival of a player who was bought to replace him at the club. He describes his frustration at being left out of the side for vital games as the 1993/4 season progressed, his anger at way United's players and followers were treated in Turkey, his sadness at Sir Matt Busby's death, and his recall to the team and scoring of a vital goal which helped the club to its twelfth FA Cup Final. Then comes his account of the triumphant climax to the season, with both of English football's major trophies won, followed by his decision to take the manager's job at Middlesbrough.
