Book Description

15 May 2004
Althought the war delayed the start of his league career, Tom Finney burst on the scene when normality resumed and within a few weeks of his league debut he was lining up for England for the first time - and scoring. Nicknamed the Preston Plumber, he was arguably the greatest player England has ever produced and was certainly among the most versatile forwards of all time, equally at home on either wing or as centre forward. His story recalls a golden era for England, playing alongside other legends like Matthews, Mannion, Mortensen, Lawton and Lofthouse. It was also a time of the maximum wage, local heroes travelling on the bus with the fans. Finney looks back at this era and compares it with the modern age of superstar celebrities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 25 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Having been told the tales from my father and other family friends about this great man it was time to read his autobiography. I wasnt dissapointed. Sir Tom Finney comes across as a modest man who obviously had all the ability in the world, whilst still being down to earth. An amazing book which I completely recommend to football fans of all ages.
