Ivan Ponting is an experienced journalist with some three dozen books on football to his credit. These include Manchester United Player By Player, The Essential History of Manchester United, and Red And Raw, a post-war history of United's rivalry with Liverpool. For four years he contributed the match reports and player profiles for the club's official yearbook; he has written hundreds of features for United Review, the club's matchday programme; and worked extensively for Legends, the magazine of United's Former Players Association. He is also the chief football obituary writer for The Independent newspaper. He loves the summer game, too, and Sixty Summers: Somerset Cricket Since The War (co-written with David Foot) won the National Sporting Club's inaugural Cricket Book of the Year award in 2007.
The Match of My Life series provides a captivating collection of first-person accounts by former footballers of their careers and in particular the most memorable match they played in. There are archive pictures and statistics on each player before the players entertain us with anecdotes and memories of classic matches. The Manchester United edition, edited by Ivan Ponting, includes recollections from fifteen club legends such as Bryan Robson, Gary Pallister, Frank Stapleton, Martin Buchan, Alex Stepney and Bill Foulkes. This is another worthwhile read from the Know The Score stable - Nathan Davies, The Association of Football Statisticians
