This review is from: Banksy: The Autobiography (Paperback)
An awe inspiring tale of the greatest goalkeeper ever to stand between the sticks. Gentleman Gordon tells of his childhood and throughout his career in football which has gone through more than its share of ups and downs, from Chesterfield through to Stoke City and beyond.
Throughout all this he talks about the constant need to keep improving and to learn more about the physics of goalkeeping which till then had been ignored. Despite his knocks and injuries including the loss of sight in one eye his love for the game and dedication shows what can be accomplished if you put your mind to it.
The book in my mind talks about a golden era in English football when sportmanship was more important that money and winning, tragically something that has been lost in todays game.
