I have a read this and found it a really good read. I was part of his journey watched as a City fan when he swallowed his tongue against Leicester and at the game when he got the injury that finished his pro playing days against Aston Villa.
An absolutely fantastic player and I have no doubt he would have captained England if he hadn’t have been so unlucky.
This book made be laugh and cry and I think this would be a good read even if you aren’t a City fan Paul Lake comes across as the normal bloke who got what most of us wish for and play for his team shame City contributed to the poor treatment of his injury (Peter Swales has a lot to answer the tight b*stard)StirlingCrispinSubscriber
My Father and Other Working-Class Football Heroes by Gary Imlach.
A fascinating insight into footballing life in the days of the maximum wage – working as a joiner in the summer, players paying to represent their country in the World Cup, getting moved around the country for a pittance. One injury and their career was over. Brilliant read.
Tony cascarino’s is good too but nothing compared to the above.Posted 6 years ago
And The Damned Utd by David Peace isn’t a biography but is – and worth reading.
