As legendary Manchester United manager Matt Busby lay in an oxygen
tent in his hospital bed, recovering from the horror of the Munich plane
crash, he clutched the friend of his close friend and faithful right-handman
Jimmy Murphy. Murphy stepped into Busby’s shoes and answered United’s
call in their hour of need. More than that, he provided the spark which
would see a phoenix spectacularly rise from the flames.

Murphy would be at Busby’s side as the club famously conquered
England and Europe, driven by a new generation of Babes.
Murphy would remain United’s assistant manager up to 1971, going on to
become a club scout, unearthing and recruiting famous talents like
Gordon Hill and Steve Coppell. In his other role as Wales’ football
manager, he would mastermind his country’s only appearance in the
World Cup finals – taking Wales to the brink of the semi-finals in 1958.

The Man Who Kept The Red Flag Flying has been written in full
co-operation with Murphy’s family, with unique insight from sons Nick
and Jimmy Junior. It features contributions and comments from Sir
Alex Ferguson, George Best, Tommy Docherty and Ron Atkinson,
among many, and rare excerpts from the Daily Mirror and Manchester
Evening news archives. It also includes rare and unseen images and
memorabilia from the family collection.
