Immortal Everton centre forward Dixie Dean still holds the League scoring record with the 60 goals he plundered for the Mersey Blues in 1927/28.
This fascinating book helps us celebrate and truly understand the legend of the Goodison Park super hero. “DIXIE UNCUT – The Lost Interview” features the original manuscript produced by former Liverpool Echo sports editor Michael Charters in 1971 when he interviewed Dean for a record-breaking 18 part series that captivated Football Echo readers for over five months.
It is written in Dean’s own words.
The 30,000 word unedited version of the work, complete with 123 extra pages of fascinating rough notes, came to light as the unmatchable Echo archive was searched with the full support of the newspaper in an effort to find fresh material for this anniversary book. Every word of this “treasure” is included in a publication that will ensure Evertonians truly know the inside history of a football icon.
