Product Description

Product Description

Terry Curran’s confessional is a no holds barred tale of football guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of fans who remember the game’s golden age of Cloughie, Tommy Docherty, Lawrie McMenemy, Jack Charlton and Howard Kendall.

Sheffield Wednesday’s all-time cult hero opens his heart about football in the 1970s and 80s, with great off-field tales to make your hair curl. Brilliant and unpredictable on the pitch, argumentative and hot headed off it, Terry Curran thrilled and entertained, leaving great and unusual memories. Yet in Regrets of a Football Maverick he reveals how his contentious nature caused him to miss out on his destiny.

Highlights include learning from Cloughie, being a saint and a sinner with England World Cup hero Alan Ball, the Boxing Day Massacre and doing a Carlos Tevez at Everton. Terry’s story will transport you back to an era of great games, goals and girls – but not necessarily in that order.

WARNING: Terry Curran’s story may offend the politically correct!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining romp 1 Jan 2013
By Officer Dibble VINE VOICE
The title shows the 'slant' that tries to differentiate this memoir from the others on offer in a crowded market. Mr Curran's story focuses on several pivotal moments in a sometimes perplexing football career. He offers explanations for his 'maverick' decisions, especially the move across Sheffield.

Mr Curran has played for many clubs and this should widen the book's appeal. He stresses that the best team he played for was Everton of mid 80's vintage where injury curtailed his impact. However, his greatest legacy was with third division Sheffield Wednesday and in particular the famous 'Boxing Day Massacre'. He also happens to be a lifelong Wednesday fan which shines through the prose.

He was fortunate enough to play for a collection of managers who are household names. The book comes to life with the frank descriptions of Clough, Docherty, Jack Charlton and Lawrie McMenemy. It is unlikely the latter and Curran exchange Christmas cards.

Outside of football there are lengthy accounts of a lifelong obsession with the fairer sex. It is difficult to phrase this differently, without being impolite. Often Mr Curran gives a passable impersonation of living up to his nickname of 'a poor man's George Best'. By his own admission, he was never 'husband material'.

Stylistically, this book is of the 'as told to' category and this leads to odd sentences which grate. Nevertheless, this flew by in a single sitting.
