My Father and Other Working Class Football Heroes by Gary Imlach
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0224072684, Paperback)A beautifully written and moving account of the author’s search for the man his father was, and the life he led as a well-known footballer at a time when the men who played the game, and those who watched it, led fundamentally the same lives together in the same communities.
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:20:33 -0400)
Stuart Imlach played football in the last days of the maximum wage when footballers were serfs at the mercy of their clubs and when the men who played the game and those who watched it led fundamentally the same lives in the same communities. His son recaptures that era, barely comprehensible 40 years on, and the way it changed.
