Ramblings of a Nostalgic Old Red is a selection from over 200 articles written during the last 20 years. They cover several facets, some humorous, some sad, and others thought provoking. They also help the reader understand the changes that have occurred in English soccer over the last 20 years.

Manchester United historian Tom Clare's articles transmit his knowledge of, and passion for, Manchester United, and for the game of soccer, which makes this book a must read not only for Manchester United fans, but soccer lovers in general. The interview with World, and European Cup winner Nobby Stiles is particularly poignant and moving, as is the interview with former United star Albert Scanlon.

His description of the games from Manchester United’s first ever excursion into competitive European soccer, when they became the first English club to enter what was then European Cup, are brilliantly told, making the reader feel as though they were there themselves.

Clare has become a respected author charting much of the club’s history in his earlier books Forever a Babe, The Men Who Were the Busby Babes, and The United Tour of Manchester.
