Product description


"There's a strange fascination about Tony Currie that runs in parallel with the late David Bowie, or even the school of provocatively effeminate wrestlers of the early 1970s such as Adrian Street - glam Englishmen whose apparent purpose was to raise the hackles of a more stolid, crewcut generation with their flamboyant, long-haired antics." --When Saturday Comes

"Currie was one of the game's Mavericks, perhaps epitomised by the famous picture of him sharing a kiss with Alan Birchenall. Currie had serious off-field problems when his career came to an end. He was a Jimmy Armfield signing at Leeds, and his reflections on the former Blackpool skipper's tenure as manager at Elland Road are interesting." --Blackpool Gazette Book of the Week
