3.0 out of 5 stars Re-live 1966 and all that, 10 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Ghost Of '66: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is the autobiography of Martin Peters, one of only two Englishman to ever score in the FIFA World Cup final (to date of course, here's hoping).

The biography itself is pretty straightforward with no controversy throughout. The obvious high point is the recalling of the run to the World Cup Final which he scored in as England won.

He also talks us through his club career too. He started at West Ham before moving on to Spurs and then Norwich. He also described a stint at Sheffield United where he was also manager, but only for a short time. He also talks about the famous characters in the game he came up against and there are some good anecdotes of the likes of Bobby Moore and Sir Alf Ramsey. There are also lots of comparisons with how football was then to how it is now.

The closing chapter where he offers views of who should make the 2006 England World Cup squad is already out of date and is a chapter that probably could have been left out of the book.

Overall there is nothing spectacular to set this apart from other biographies and it is probably not worth going out of your way for unless you are a West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur or Norwich City fan.
