“They became such a friendly unit, almost like brothers. We had a great bunch of boys that were getting better every game and they did it together. That was the important thing, they did it together.”

At the heart of this ambitious film is the tale of how six 14 year-old working class lads from diverse backgrounds came together to play for the same club, became the spine of the most lauded team in world football, and who throughout their period of unparalleled success remained best mates. Sir Alex Ferguson talks about his belief in building a foundation for youth football and the pride he felt in seeing the rise to prominence and global sporting superstardom of six supremely talented young Manchester United footballers.
“There was a great optimism from everyone at the club, including the supporters, particularly the supporters, who realised they were seeing something special”

With the spotlight shining brightly on David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville, the film covers the glorious 1992-1999 period, culminating in Manchester United’s European Cup triumph. Recently announcing his retirement, and taking the role of assistant manager, Ryan Giggs, will continue to shape the future of the club.
“It gave me the chance to think back over all the events in not only my career but all of the lads involved. Hopefully you’ll see how personal it is to us all”
