5.0 out of 5 stars Bril
Another one of my fave books. I felt so sad reading this book but really enjoyed it and so did my daughter. George was just an ordinary lad from an ordinary family. Never been out of Belfast he was sent to Manchester as a kid to basically fend for himself. His Mum never recovered.
An honest account from George of how he felt throughout his life, what he was up...

2.0 out of 5 stars Could try harder
The book is very dated as it has not been properly/fully updated from the early 90s edition - so all references to players are of that era and all references to "the current First Division" pre-date the creation of the Premiership. It is a serious weakness when the book draws many comparisons between contemporary players and the players of the 60s and 70s...

This review is from: Good, the Bad and the Bubbly (Paperback)
The book is very dated as it has not been properly/fully updated from the early 90s edition - so all references to players are of that era and all references to "the current First Division" pre-date the creation of the Premiership. It is a serious weakness when the book draws many comparisons between contemporary players and the players of the 60s and 70s. George's perspective on the world and his inability to deal with his alcohol problem are dealt with factually and without emotion.

An honest account from George of how he felt throughout his life, what he was up against and how his downfall came about. A great, great read.
