Georgie Charlton is the greatest footballer there never was. A contemporary rival to George Best – as goal machine, love machine and cash machine. Outrageously talented on the pitch and endearingly pathetic off it. Everybody loves Georgie and those who love him the most get hurt the most. Of course, he doesn’t intend to hurt them but his genetic pre-disposition to infidelity, his hilarious irresponsibility and downright bad luck conspire to lead him to the brink of despair. He faces crippling injuries, betrayal, bereavement and malice aforethought with stoicism and generous measures of Bushmills. But whenever life knocks him down he bounces right back up. Follow his remarkable career from Glentoran to Manchester United, Liverpool, Queen’s Park Rangers, Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur, his relationship with fellow superstars George Best and Billy Bremner and the highs and lows with some of the managerial giants of the game; Sir Matt Busby, Bill Shankly, ‘arry ‘bleedin’ Andrews, Don Revie, Billy Bingham, Jimmy Armfield, Brian Clough and Keith Burkinshaw. There has never been a footballer as good and as hopeless as Georgie Charlton. His story, like his talent for making headlines, is unbelievable. A witty, authentic and compelling football autobiography that will transport you to Georgie's glory days.
