David Batty is one of a dying breed of tigerish midfielders, better known for stopping the opposition than for creating much for his own side. Yet managers like Kevin Keegan, Glenn Hoddle, Tery Venables, Kenny Dalglish and David O'Leary have all seen him as a key part in their team strategy. In his autobiography, David batty, the son of a Leeds dustbinman, is unsurprisingly straight-talking and honest; but his story offers humour and great tales - such as the time he deliberately gave away a penalty while playing for Leeds because he was annoyed at the constant heckling he was recieving from his father!show more
