Football's Braveheart: The Authorised Biography of Dave Mackay [9781785317910]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Football's Braveheart is the riveting life story of Dave Mackay, the fearless, skilled, heroic and barrel-chested left-half who was an icon for Spurs, Hearts, Derby and Scotland. Off the field, Dave was a humble, fair-minded, sociable man. On it, he was an out-and-out winner, a warrior and inspiration with consummate ball skills and intelligence. The heartbeat of Spurs' double-winning side of 1961, he came back after two broken legs to add to a glittering trophy collection started at Hearts. After his playing career, Mackay distinguished himself as a title-winning manager with Derby County. A legends' legend, he was lauded by George Best as the hardest and bravest opponent he ever faced. Fabled managers Bill Nicholson (Spurs) and Brian Clough (Derby) hailed him as their best signing, and other admirers included Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law and Sir Alex Ferguson. Author Mike Donovan has gained exclusive, first-hand insights from those who knew Mackay best to bring you the definitive story of a man who made an indelible mark on football.
AUTHOR: Award-winning author Mike Donovan has written numerous Tottenham-related books including The King of White Hart Lane (Alan Gilzean), Glory, Glory Lane, Spurs' Greatest Games, Spurs' Unsung Hero (Terry Dyson) and Takenote! (Darren Anderton). A Spurs fan since 1961, Mike met Dave Mackay and saw him play throughout the 1960s. Mike has been a journalist for 40 years and has worked as a boxing and tennis correspondent and sports editor.
