Colin Bell - Reluctant Hero,
This review is from: Colin Bell - Reluctant Hero: The Autobiography of a Manchester City and England Legend (Hardcover)
As a City fan who had seen Colin play at Maine Road in the early 70's I could not put this book down. How refreshing to read about a true gentleman with very unique skills who was not "full of himself". He was a wonderful player - he could do everything. He worked tiredlessly for City and gave the club his all - but he never forgot his working-class roots. I have DVD's of Manchester City's games in the 70's and also some of England's games in the same era and Colin stands out on both.
When Colin got the ball, the Kippax used to bounce with excitement - there was not many times when he missed a goal!! He was loyal through and through to City and our fans - and after watching Colin you could see why he was "The King of the Kippax".
A great read for any footy fan.
