The Boy Wonders: Wayne Rooney, Duncan Edwards, and the Changing Face of Football by Colin Malam

Duncan Edwards and Wayne Rooney are two of the greatest players to have graced English football in the post-war era.

There are fascinating parallels between them, not least the fact that they were both boy wonders snapped up by Manchester United. There are also major differences: differences that stem not only from questions of character, upbringing and misfortune, but from the march of time. Professional football now is a very different business from the one Duncan Edwards knew 50 years ago.

In The Boy Wonders Colin Malam examines the glittering careers of the two players, and charts some of the massive changes in English football that have accompanied them along the way.
