Headline, 2007, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In this first part of Sir Bobby’s remarkable autobiography he describes his early life growing up in a tight-knit mining community in the north-east of England and charts his extraordinary career at Manchester United. Charlton is United through and through. A member of the original ‘Busby Babes’, Sir Bobby devoted his career to the club. He won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law and, on a snow-covered runway in Munich in February 1958, was involved in arguably the most shocking football tragedy of all time. With his beloved Reds, Charlton tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three First Division championships and in 1968 reached the pinnacle of club success, by defeating Benfica in the European Cup final. Inevitably, such highs were balanced with no less dramatic lows — the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss only weeks after Munich, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan.”
