DOCUMENTARY: Gordon Hill And The Boys Of 1977
As well as having some incredible teams who achieved incredible things, Manchester United also have a number of great sides in their history who didn’t quite, for one reason or another, reach their full potential. The 1977 side is one. In the first of a new documentary series for UnitedInFocus.com, we take a look back with United legend Gordon Hill who recalls those fantastic days when the world seemed there for Tommy Docherty’s boys.
If there was one player who summed up the cavalier style of the ‘Doc’s Devils’ it was Hill, a flamboyant winger who was that rare breed – a great goalscorer, and a scorer of great goals. He lifts the lid on his team-mates and talks about his road in and out of Old Trafford.
