The streets of Manchester are awash with football history.

Not just trophies, fans and players, but living, kicking football history: Manchester United being rescued from bankruptcy by a St Bernard dog(!); the now unmentionable Jimmy Savile and his nightclub cronies huddled round a radio having cancelled their event on Munich night; the players union leading a strike threat from their Manchester HQ in 1961 – and that’s apart from all George Best’s bars and boutiques.

In association (sic) with the National Football Museum, New Manchester Walks’ nippiest wing backs will be leading a sortie through the packed midfield that is Manchester’s football history.

The tour will finish in Fergie time.
