The autobiography of former England captain and doyen of commentators, one of football's most respected and best-loved figures.
Jimmy Armfield made his debut for Blackpool in 1954. Combining along the right flank with Stanley Matthews, they were the Gary Neville and David Beckham of their era. Armfield recalls playing alongside the greats of the 1950s and 1960s for club and country. He tells of the pressures of his brief period in football management, before he moved on to journalism and commentary.
Such is the respect in which all in game hold him, that when the FA was looking for a new England manager, twice in the 1990s they turned to him to find the best choice. After 50 years in the game, Armfield has a fund of brilliant stories to tell and a unique insight into the game at all levels; this book is the result.
