    As a Manchester United fan i was surprised to learn just how much Real Madrid helped United out in the aftermath of Munich. A tale of two cities is an excellent, well written and at times truly moving book. Highly recommended to reds of all ages.I never knew how much we owed to Real Madrid and especially their then President Santiago Bernabeu. Ludden tells a cracking tale. Well worth a read and the last line of the book left me in tears.

    This is the story of the untold friendship between two of the biggest names in club football. It is a relationship that has stood the test of time. And, with the pair about to meet once again in the Champions League next month John Ludden's book should be read for it as a thrilling, rollercoaster tale of tragedy, despair, sublime football and thrilling victory.

    A truly remarkable story of the early days of the European cup and of how real madrid and Manchester United became such world renowned clubs. As a United supporter I've read plenty of articles and books about the Munich air disaster and the rebuilding of the team, leading to the 1968 European cup victory. But this was so interesting in how it detailed the close history between these two clubs, most of which I was unaware of. A must read for any Manchester United fan, but would also be enjoyed by any true football fan, regardless of who you support.

    I read it as a red. I gave it my dad who is a blue,but remembers 1958. He loved it too. I think any football fan who is tired of the usual ghost written autobiography would enjoy reading about real Madrid storming,unstoppable, through Europe. Alfredo Di Stefano ,Ferenc Puskás. Or the emergence from the Manchester rain of Matt Busby and his team,racing to the semi finals to meet them in 1957. Only to be cut short.Then rise again.A great read.
