This was my era, my team i had to get to read it.He talks about the 60s and the 70s Ossie,Cookie and Hutch the Kings Rd the pubs and clubs.There is update to this book which brings it up to date. " Don`t shoot the Talban or your awake the neighbour`s"

If you like the history of football, this book will be an excellent buy. It primarily charts the amazing life of Billy Meredith, but also exposes the contempt that the 'suits', who ran the football association, had for the very men who made the First Division the best league in the world. Billy was a forerunner of Jimmy Hill in knowing the monetary value of the top players (apart from the fact, unlike Jim, he was probably the best player in the world). The ex public schoolboys tried to ruin him but he never gave up. great book!

The book is interesting and gives some interesting fact but it is week in may areas and probably the most important is that it is written in the style of an early 20th century.

Not always factually correct in some places but at least it puts one of football's first superstars back in the big time.

He was a controversial player and this book has a lot of controversial views. It certainly gives a fresh perspective on many players and managers of the 70’s and 80’s.

Very entertaining, even if you are not a fan of any of his clubs
