5.0 out of 5 stars GOLDEN WONDER, 16 Feb 2010
By 
S. monkhouse (TEESSIDE ENGLAND) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
ANYBODY WHO LOVES FOOTBALL WILL GET A LOT OF SATISFACTION FROM READING ABOUT 'THE GOLDEN BOY' THAT WAS WILF MANNION. I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO MEET HIM ONCE IN HIS LATER LIFE AND HE WAS A GENTLEMAN IN ALL SENSES OF THE WORD.PEOPLE AROUND HERE SPEAK ABOUT HIM AS AN ALMOST GOD LIKE FIGURE WHO LIT UP THE FIELD THAT WAS AYRESOME PARK, NOW SADLY NO LONGER WITH US, BOTH THE GROUND AND WILF . IF YOU CAN GET HOLD OF ANY VIDEO ARCHIVE FOOTAGE AFTER READING THE BOOK YOU WILL SEE WHY SIR BOOBY ROBSON SAID OF HIM, 'BETTER THAN ALL THE FOOTBALLERS HE HAD EVER SEEN, INCLUDING PELE AND MARADONA. HIGH PRAISE INDEED BUT APPARENTLY ACCURATE. AND TRUE BY ALL THAT SAW HIM PLAY.HE IS BURIED JUST ALONG FROM MY FATHER IN LAW IN THE LOCAL CEMETERY WHICH I PASS EVERY DAY AND QUITE OFTEN THINK ABOUT 'HOW GOOD WAS HE ?' THIS BOOK GOES A LONG WAY TO EXPLAIN JUST THAT.
