The greatest midfielder of his generation --Sir Bobby Robson
The word legend is overused in football speak, but Wark can be accurately described as an Ipswich Town Football Club legend. His memories of an eventful playing career coupled with recollections of his time at Liverpool and for the Scottish national team make for an interesting and thought-provoking autobiography. This book can work for a Town fan on a variety of levels. You can read this account to provoke a few happy memories of past games and past players. After all, it is difficult to think of a Town legend that is not name checked in this book. However, to view this book as just another piece of Ipswich Town nostalgia would do this book a disservice. This is a valuable story about a player who has been a true servant to Town and walked into many Town fan s hearts however old they were. --Tim Sansom, TWTD Fanzine
