Stan Bowles: The Autobiography Summary
'I think that Frank Worthington summed my life up quite well when he said, "Stan has spent all of his money on gambling, booze and birds." I responded to that: "Well, at least I didn't waste it!"' Stan Bowles was one of the greatest players of the golden age of English football, the 1970s. But like many of his contemporaries, he was probably as famous for his exploits in the bar or at the race track. Indeed, his chronic addiction to gambling led him to blow upwards of quarter of a million pounds. Packed with irreverent and entertaining anecdotes the book covers the ups and downs of Bowles' career, from his childhood in a prefab in Manchester, his early days at Man City, spent hanging around with the likes of George Best as well as the notorious Quality Street Gang, his heyday at QPR, and the unhappier times at Forest and Leyton Orient. STAN BOWLES, MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY is an unflinchingly honest account of a sporting legend.
