Product description

Review

"England and Fulham captain Haynes was the David Beckham of his day. His £100-a-week wage paved the way for today's lucrative stars - one of the funniest moments is Bobby Robson enviously ruing he was earning only £25 - yet he has been hugely overlooked... until now." --Sunday Mirror Christmas Book Review

"Powerful. Thoughtful, building layers of anecdote and skilfully co-ordinating the impressions of numerous contemporaries. Vivid portrayal. The essence of the player is captured permanently." --When Saturday Comes

"Affectionate but balanced. A fine job" --Backpass

"Poignant. Showbiz anecdotes. Football's first celebrity." --SportsBookoftheMonth.com

"A compelling picture of a football superstar" --The League Magazine
