Description
Information
Every generation has a player who leaves opponents, teammates, coaches and fans slack-jawed and breathless.



Phil Carman was the player of his generation, capable of turning a game in five minutes with inspirational marks and goals.



Carman was the first full-time professional footballer, the fittest player of his era. He played with such ease and grace that success seemed inevitable. But Carmen's temperament was affected by the greatest interstate war the game has ever seen. His individual streak meant the success he craved eluded him.



Carmen missed grand finals due to suspension. He clashed with teammates, coaches, fans and infamously head-butted Graham Carbery, a boundary umpire. More than thirty years since Carmen played football, he is still remembered as one of the most controversial, single-minded and brilliant footballers in History.



In Fabulous Phil, Carman tells his side of the story, and the men he played with and against tell their side of the story, of what Carman was capable of...



The book itself is a fascinating insight into football as it was and will never be again.
