Synopsis: Jimmy Greaves is one of the most well-known footballers to grace the English game, a goalscorer of legendary prowess. His characteristically humorous autobiography journeys from Jimmy's childhood in the East End, through his early career in the Chelsea youth team to being one of the great stars of 1960s football at Spurs, AC Milan and as an outstanding England forward. Jimmy's record as a striker is extraordinary - he was the leading goalscorer in the First Division - now Premiership - for six seasons and during his playing career was never out of the top five. There are darker aspects too - the bitter disappointment of failing to make the World Cup-winning team of 1966, and the battle against the alcoholism that followed his retirement from the game. This book is both Jimmy's story and the story of football in the golden era of the 1950s and 60s, before money changed the game. It is populated by the great players who Jimmy played with and against, and animated by anecdotes about the game. It is an account of how football was then and how it has changed.
About the Author: Jimmy Greaves was an outstanding forward for Chelsea, Spurs and England before becoming a popular TV pundit (Saint and Greavsie). He is now a much-in-demand after-dinner speaker.
