Fascinating read about a lonely figure in his public/working life.,
This review is from: Jimmy Adamson: The Man Who Said No to England (Hardcover)
As a Leeds fan who actively took part in the demonstrations at Elland Road to have Adamson (and several of the Leeds directors) removed in 1978 to 1980, I found this a very interesting read. It goes into detail about Jimmy's private life, which is both revealing as well as saddening. Well worth a read.

Mr. David V. Thomas says:
Leeds fans who lived through the turbulent Adamson period will find the Leeds chapters useful in trying to understand the background to Adamson's management and the problems he had. He made serious efforts to sign Keegan but the directors would not fund it. Imagine Keegan at Leeds instead of Southampton. The club, Adamson and city would have been re-juvenated.
