Brilliant insight into a fabulous team,
This review is from: GREENHOFF (Hardcover)
The Tommy Docherty team of the mid 70s was a throwback to an earlier, happier footballing age. Key to its success was a policy of all-out attack with one of the centre-half ready and willing to break forward given any excuse. The plan was tailor-made for Brian Greenhoff who carved out a niche as a footballing defender winning England caps and Wembley glory.
Yet as one of a famous pair of footballing brothers his relationship with sibling Jimmy has broken down since a disastrous spell when they co-managed Rochdale FC. They haven't spoken for over two decades and it may seem silly that the pair fell out but it's not that unusual.
An interesting antidote to the mundane biog, this is a must for anyone who can remember football as it should be.
