With the help of players, journalists, and a psychologist, this authoritative study analyzes the five men who have worn the number seven shirt for Manchester United—Best, Robson, Cantona, Beckham, and Ronaldo—and assesses both their soccer credentials as well as what makes them tick. Each man is involved in some of the greatest stories in soccer history, including Best's almost single-handed victory at the European Cup; Robson's battle to lift United at a time when the team was mired in mediocrity; Cantona's transformation of the club back into winners; Beckham's amazing performance that led to the end of Sir Alex Ferguson's personal holy grail via an audacious European Cup win in 1999; Ronaldo's ability to bring hope and glitter to a club in transition. This is the no-holds-barred story of Manchester United's own magnificent midfielders and the history of the club itself, covering the good, the bad, and the ugly.
