Peter Shilton is a legend in football. One of the greatest goalkeepers to play in this country, his 25 clean sheets in one season at Nottingham Forest, and 67 throughout a lengthy international career are landmarks in the modern game. He started out at 15 with Leicester City, achieved fame at Stoke City, then won two European Cups and a League Championship medal with Forest. He's played in numerous World Cup campaigns (both successful and unsuccessful), was the keeper involved with Maradona's 'Hand of God', and, aged 40, was still playing with Derby County in the First Division while representing England at Italia '90. Throughout the nineties he became increasingly embroiled in gambling and related problems which culminated in near bankruptcy. The full story of his financial difficulties, numerous anecdotes concerning the likes of Brian Clough, Peter Taylor and Sir Alf Ramsey; in fact an entire three decades in football is covered in just under 400 pages.
