I read twenty to thirty books a year and must admit I loved this one ....having watched Harry play as a lad of seven on the terraces at West Ham , now live in Bournemouth and have chatted with him on several occasions , I may have a bit of a bias but I can't believe any football fan wouldn't thoroughly enjoy this book !
His memories of growing up and joining West Ham , the very moving words about the great Bobby Moore are extremely moving , right the way through to the infamous Court Case , where Harry speaks with such honesty and openness about the stress and fear of the whole event. You have to admire the man himself , his love of Family and for those trusted friends both in and away from the game.
There are a few surprises within the pages , but gossip and tit for tat arguments are not part of Harry's vocabulary , instead of judging , he gives a strong opinion about today's game and the love and passion he still feels for a career that has not always treated him kindly.
If you like football, whoever you support , read this book , you'll feel a much greater affinity with the great game if you do !
