Description

When Martin Peters missed out on playing in the 1964 FA Cup final, he wondered if his chance to play a major fixture at Wembley had gone for ever. Two years later, he was a goal-scorer in England's triumphant World Cup victory. Martin Peters was a gifted attacking midfield player. Part of the legendary West Ham trio of Moore, Hurst and Peters, he spent nearly a decade at the club before moving on to Spurs for a record fee of 200,000. After five years there, which saw him win the UEFA Cup, he moved to Norwich, and helped them to promotion to the First Division. At all three clubs, he is revered as one of their greatest stars. In his autobiography he recalls working with such great players as Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves, and assesses the strengths of his managers, from Alf Ramsey to Ron Greenwood and Bill Nicholson. Peters was renowned as being a decade ahead of his time as a player, and in THE GHOST OF '66 he gives a fascinating insight into a golden era of football.show more
