Football's Great Heroes and Entertainers Summary


Football's Great Heroes and Entertainers by Jimmy Greaves

Jimmy Greaves was a great entertainer and a national hero as a footballer, and is held in equal affection as a television pundit and performer. Now Greavsie reveals the footballers and managers who have given him most entertainment and are his biggest heroes. Looking back on more than 50 years in and around the game that he loves, Greavsie has confined his star-studded assembly to players and managers of his lifetime. He dips fondly back into the days of Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney and Len Shackleton and comes up to date with in-depth analysis of modern masters like Thierry Henry, Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney. Along the way he nods in the direction of his former team-mates and good pals like Bobby Moore, Dave Mackay, Billy Wright and, of course, George Best. Footballing gods of the calibre of Pele, di Stefano, Puskas and Maradona naturally win a place in the personal Greaves Hall of Fame. You may not agree with all his selections. But if you are a true football fan you will agree that this is a book that makes you laugh and grips your attention as you take a look at some of Football's great heroes and entertainers.
