Description - The Promised Land by Daniel Harris
In 1998-99, Manchester United won the Premier League, the FA Cup and Champions League - the only team to accomplish such a feat in fifty-five years of trying. Whether that makes it the finest of all time is open to debate, but what is not is the status of the season: it is, simply and incontrovertibly, the finest ever enjoyed by an English team. And yet it's not the success that's truly extraordinary, but the glory. The season featured astounding football, exceptional competition, staggering determination, ceaseless dramatic tension and astonishing plot twists, performed by a cast of fascinating, iconic characters. It encompassed the entire gamut of joy and narrative that makes football, sport and life so compelling.
