Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “The early sixties. It was a time of innocence, caught between the wide-eyed naivety of youth and the grey cynicism of adulthood. It was a time of brash adolescent flash, and football — like everything else — was still learning, still finding its feet. Sport or showbiz? The football managers in this book are united not by any conventional notion of success, nor by association, appearance or achievement. The one thing they had in common was the desire, the need, to do things their way — regardless.”
