Omtale: Best and Edwards
By the mid-fifties, Manchester United had caught the imagination of the country. Duncan Edwards played his first game for the club at the age of 15 in 1953. Two years later he won his first England cap and was referred to as 'the spirit of British football'. Then in February '58 came Munich. Half a decade later George Best represented United reborn: 'El Beatle' of the European Cup in '68; European Player of the Year; and, in the opinion of Pele, the most naturally talented footballer that ever lived. Retired at 27 and reduced to the role of barfly and tabloid perennial - George, where did it all go wrong? Best and Edwards plots the course of two careers unmoored in wildly different ways.
