'A candid and courageous account of a great footballer ... a true 1970s maverick.' -- FourFourTwo magazine
'absorbing' -- Sunday Telegraph
'brilliant' -- Newcastle Evening Chronicle
'offers a fascinating view of English football over the past 35 years.' -- The Times
In his autobiography, Malcolm MacDonald looks back over a dramatic and eventful life. He played football at the highest level (including being capped for England 14 times), went into football management at Luton and Huddersfield, spent five years in Italy, was declared bankrupt and returned to Newcastle. During this time he also overcame alcohol problems with the help of Carol (ex-wife of Brian Johnson, lead singer of AC/DC), who he had met 25 years earlier.

I was naturally interested in hearing his view on events at SJP in his days there and in particular, his relationship with Joe Harvey and Gordon Lee. I was not disappointed, and amazed at the amateur goings on at the club in relation to the Board's behaviour in particular, the farcical preparation for the ill-fated FA Cup Final in 1974.
'Supermac' is a fascinating story about a real person and his frailties and the so-called 'characters' in the game of football.
Great for any fellow Toon fans who witnessed his fantastic goals at SJP - the hairs on the back of your neck would stand up when Supermac got the ball and launched a run forward at the opposition's goal, with the crowd bellowing their support.Happy days!
For someone who had such a successful career, I found it surprising he had so many football regrets and disappointments. 'Football' you feel let Supermac down when he most needed help and support.
Well worth the investment - get it now. I don't read many books - they fail to keep me interested but this one is well worth the investment in time and money.
