My Father and Other Working Class Football Heroes [9780224072687]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year, Award Stewart Imlach was an ordinary neighborhood soccer star of his time. A brilliant winger who thrilled the crowd on Saturdays, then worked alongside them in the off-season; who represented Scotland in the 1958 World Cup and never received a cap for his efforts; who was Man of the Match for Nottingham Forest in the 1959 FA Cup Final, and was rewarded with the standard offer - GBP20 a week, take it or leave it. Gary Imlach grew up a privileged insider at Goodison Park when Stewart moved into coaching. He knew the highlights of his father's career by heart. But when his dad died he realized they were all he knew. He began to realize, too, that he'd lost the passion for football that his father had passed down to him. In this book he faces his growing alienation from the game he was born into, as he revisits key periods in his father's career to build up a picture of his football life - and through him a whole era. My Father and Other Working-Class Heroes brilliantly recapture a lost world and the way it changed, blending the personal and the historical into a unique soccer story.
