Memoirs of a Hard Man


    One of the hardest men to pull on a pair of football boots, former Scottish defender and Dundee and Cardiff City hero, Danny Malloy, pulled no punches when he faced some of the world's greatest strikers. As you would expect, Danny's autobiography also delivers a knockout blow as he recounts his experiences among some of the larger than life characters in the game ...including a certain Brian Clough! Funny, sad, tragic and sometimes downright scary, the book charts Danny's life from early working class beginnings, to a successful spell with Dundee on Tayside and his attainment of cult status in South Wales when he captained the Cardiff City team to the First Division. The book also features tributes to Danny from some of the great and good in football including Tommy Docherty, Alan Harrington and Craig Brown CBE.
