Outspoken and honest, 'The Doc’ remains one of football's most vivid characters. He achieved success on the pitch with Preston and Scotland, yet it is as a manager that he secured his place in football history, leading no fewer than fourteen teams in four different countries. He resigned from Chelsea; he was sacked by Manchester United within two weeks of winning the 1977 FA Cup and at Derby he became embroiled in a bitter legal dispute.
Now, for the first time, the Doc reveals all about his life in the footballing world and those who have shared it – Shankly, Busby, Clough, Ramsey, Stein. This is a story like no other, from one of the biggest personalities of the game.
