First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “As the Arsenal & Scotland goalkeeper his well-timed saves and interceptions, his boldness and courage have made him one of the best-known footballers in the country. But he can also hold his own on any TV soccer panel, he is a qualified PE teacher and a member of Roger Bannister’s Sports Council. It is not surprising, then, to find him writing about his career in football with particular wit, perception and understanding. With the whole field of play in front of him, the goal-keeper sees all the sparkling moves and devastating mistakes — the latter, especially, tend to finish between his posts. Whether Bob is writing of his amateur days with Loughborough College, or the Cup and League Double with Arsenal, he puts you right into the game.”
