Football Fables

    By

    Football Fables is a hilarious and fascinating anthology of stories from some of the most exciting names to have played the game. Some are outrageous, some sad, some downright bizarre - all are true, and straight from the mouths of the men who were there when it mattered. What was it like to play for Brian Clough in his European Cup-winning prime? How did it feel to be in Graham Taylor's England side when Ronald Koeman stopped them qualifying for the 1994 World Cup? What happened in the summer of 1992 to turn Manchester United from perennial also-rans to English champions? What special gift did Gazza leave in Erik Thorstvedt's goalkeeping gloves as an unforgettable welcome to Spurs? You'll find out the answers to these questions and much, much more in the pages of Football Fables. Featuring in-depth interviews with the likes of Ron Atkinson, Bryan Robson, Barry Fry and Peter Shilton, Football Fables is an intriguing and insightful journey down some of the more mysterious avenues of the footballing world.
