Gary & Phil Neville Books
Gary Neville - The Biography - The Story of A Legend
By Tom Oldfield Publishers John Blake Publishing 2007
Gary Neville is one of Manchester United's most experienced players, making his senior debut for the club in the UEFA cup in 1992, he has worked the right side of Old Trafford tirelessly for the past 14 years. Starting at the club as a schoolboy in 1991, he quickly cemented his position in what would prove to be Alex Ferguson's strongest ever team. Going on to help the side win the treble in 1999, Neville was a key part of the only English team ever to have achieved this remarkable feat. His determination in the tackle and consistency of passing, coupled with a turn of pace sufficient to keep up with the quickest strikers in the premiership have contributed to him making over 500 appearances for his club and 80 appearances for England where he has proved time and time again that he can compete with the world's top players. Taking over the captaincy from Roy Keane in the 2005/6 season, his commitment and hunger to bring silverware to Old Trafford has never been greater than it is now. Rarely injured, he is one of the club's most stalwart defenders. His famous long throw-ins have rattled defences the world over, as has his link up play with his midfield counterparts. On the pitch, he displays a 'never say die' attitude which has earned him respect from fans and from time to time admonishment from the F.A. This book tells the story of how something as simple as love for a football club turned a young boy into one of the most recognisable faces in world football. Released May 2007.

By Gary & Phil Neville Publishers Know The Score Books 2006

He starred in the 1990 World Cup as England won through to the semi-finals before crashing out in heart-breaking fashion. At Manchester United, he was one of the pivotal players in Fergie's revolution as the club shook off the tag of nearly men to lift trophy after trophy during his time at Old Trafford. In this autobiography, Parker reveals for the first time many stories from inside both United and England's dressing rooms, as well as a host of other tales including revelations about Sir Alex Ferguson and many of his most famous players including David Beckham, Roy Keane and Eric Cantona. Parker's understatement and charm belie a sharp eye for detail and a keen sense of what is right and wrong with the modern game. In this World Cup year, this book is sure to hit the headlines and be read by football fans across the divides. Released in April 2006.

The Boy Wonders: Duncan Edwards, Wayne Rooney and the Changing Face of Football
By Colin Malam Publishers Highdown 2006
Duncan Edwards and Wayne Rooney are two of the greatest players to have graced English football in the post-war era. Professional football now is a very different business from the one Duncan Edwards knew. In "The Boy Wonders", Colin Malam not only examines the glittering careers of the two players, but charts some of the massive changes in English football that have accompanied them along the way. Thanks to the abolition of the maximum wage, the Bosman ruling and an avalanche of television money, Rooney earns more in a week than Edwards could in 100 years. At the same time, he is beset by problems beyond Edwards' ken. Duncan could go to work on the bus, but Wayne cannot step outside his door without being monitored by an intrusive media. Released in September 2006.

Rooney: Wayne's World
By Frank Worrall Publishers Mainstream 2006
As the 2006 World Cup drew ever nearer, never had so much been expected of one so young in England. The nation's hopes for an end to 40 years of hurt rested squarely on the shoulders of 20-year-old Wayne Rooney. This detailed biography charts his remarkable rise to the top, climaxing with his 2006 season at Manchester United and his impact on the world stage in Germany. It covers Rooney's astonishing story from adolescence to the World Cup of 2006, providing the definitive objective insight into just what makes the boy wonder. Author Frank Worrall delves behind the headlines and the furore surrounding the man-boy who, in August 2004, became the world's most expensive teenager after joining United for 27 million pounds. Is Rooney the new Pele or is he heading for early burnout like George Best and Paul Gascoigne? And what about his inner demons, that temper and his often stormy relationship with his fiancee Coleen? From the massage parlours, the betting and the boozing, to the wonder goals and the glory, this book tells the full, explosive story of Rooney's rise to fame and builds a portrait of his crazy life as a young football star. Released in August 2006.

By Wayne Rooney Publishers Harper Sport 2006
At just 20 years of age, Wayne Rooney is already one of the best footballers in the world. What is the true story behind the most talked-about player in Britain?What memories does he have of his tough Merseyside upbringing? Who were the early influences that helped shape his character?

He goes on to describe how his life changed irrevocably when Alex Ferguson and Manchester United came calling in the summer of 2004, his dazzling efforts for England in the European Championships, and the truth about his relationship with partner Coleen McLoughlin. For World Cup 2006 Rooney reports on every aspect of the Finals. From the shock of his broken metarsal and the rush to get fit, through the group matches, to the explosive quarter-final against Portugal, his is an unembellished account of what went on inside the England camp.
From the streets of Croxteth to the stadiums of Germany, it's an incredible journey by an incredible footballer. Released in hardback in July 2006. Paperback version released in August 2007.
