Superb book about a truly great footballer.

I have a personal interest here-i was named Gordon after Mr Smith.My grandfather knew him,and he sometimes came round to my grandparents house for his dinner.My mum was rather in awe of him,so as I was her first born son,I got his name.As for the book,I have just finished it-truly superb.It evokes a time gone by when footballers were gentlemen,who didn't dive or cheat.It also reminds us of a time when floodlighting and games on TV were unheard of.Gordon Smiths signing on fee for Hibs was-£10!!And the punters paid two shillings-10 pence!!-to get in to see a match.Superb book about a truly great footballer.
