Written over the course of twoMoreWhen This Is The One was first published in 2007 it was hailed by Michael Crick as one of the all-time Manchester United classics and featured by The Times in their quest to find the Best Ever 50 Sports Books. Written over the course of two eventful and controversial seasons, This Is The One offers a unique portrait of Sir Alex Ferguson from Daniel Taylors position behind the scenes as a football writer covering the club for The Guardian. Taylor sees Ferguson at one of the lowest ebbs of his quarter of a century in charge during the 2005-06 season, with a failing team, explosive fallouts with Roy Keane and Ruud van Nistelrooy, a disenchanted fan base and speculation that he might be forced out of the job. The season that followed demonstrated why Ferguson is still the greatest manager in the game, deposing Chelsea as Premier League champions and eventually seeing off Jose Mourinho. Ferguson would later call it the greatest achievement of his time at Englands biggest football club. This Is The One is the close-up, warts-and-all account of what happened during those two helterskelter seasons - the excruciating lows and the exhilarating highs - and the many different sides of Ferguson, from his infamous hairdryer treatment to the softer, more humane side of the most successful manager in the business.
