They were the playground superstars of yesterday. They played for the love of the game. But they were also the heroic underclass: the rank and file footballer (from Arthur Albiston to Romeo Zondervan) with a Ford Capri and Rod Stewart's haircut. This title looks at the sticker book legends and terrace favourites who disappeared from public view.

Where are They Now? Summary


Where are They Now?: Rediscovering Over 100 Football Stars of the 70s and 80s by Matt Allen

They were the playground superstars of yesterday - the cloggers, the goal machines, the shot stoppers, the stalwarts, the socks-around-the-ankles mavericks. They played for the love and glory of the beautiful game, for the thrill of the battle and the roar of the crowd, not the bulging bank account or the trophy girlfriend. And with every appearance on The Big Match or Saint and Greavsie, they pushed an army of kids onto the park with a Minerva Supreme football and a Wembley dream. But they were also the heroic underclass: the rank and file footballer (from Arthur Albiston to Romeo Zondervan) with a Ford Capri and Rod Stewart's haircut. "Where Are They Now?" meets the sticker book legends and terrace favourites who disappeared from public view. Zip up the parka. It's time to relive those muddy matches with an era of forgotten idols...
