Video: The trailer for Class of ’92, a documentary on Manchester United’s most famous youth team
They were one of the most famous youth teams in the history of football and now the famed Manchester United ‘Class of 92’ have had a movie made about them. Here’s the trailer.
Although it was known that they were pretty special at the time, few would have predicted the effect that the famous 1992 FA Youth Cup-winning team would go on to have at Manchester United and beyond in the footballing world.
Despite Alan Hansen famously saying that you’ll “win nothing with kids,” that team laid the foundation for one of the most successful periods enjoyed by any club in any country for the best part of two decades as well as producing some of the best players the English game has seen in the last 20 years.
Five of that team – Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville – and Phil Neville, who was younger and graduated to the senior team a little later than the rest, are the focus of a new movie called ‘Class of ’92, which is set to be released next month.
The official trailer was broadcast on Soccer AM this morning and as well as contributions from the six names above, it also features cameos from Zinedine Zidane, Tony Blair, Eric Cantona, film director Danny Boyle and Mani of the Stone Roses to talk about the impact the team made on football and on the city of Manchester at the time.
The appeal of the film to Manchester United fans is obvious – they’ll be delighted to see the return of the famous light-blue pyjama style away jersey from the early 90s for a start – but judging by the trailer it looks as it might have wider appeal and the worldwide profile of Beckham alone is bound to ensure that. As will Gary Neville talking about an inability to chat up girls, of course.
Class of ’92 is due to be released on December 2.
