Description

Every football fan knows the name Stan Bowles. Stan the Man. The maverick, the troublemaker, the record breaker, the gambler. Bowles was one of the first fooball "rock stars", but while some of his high-profile contemporaries from the 1970s have remained in the public eye, Bowles has virtually disappeared. During his days at QPR, Manchester City and Nottingham Forest, amongst others, he was a match-winner. If he remembered to turn up to the match that is! To the modern sermonizing culture Bowles symbolizes both the good and bad sides of football - a star who wasted his vhances. But he is the kind of man who casually refuses to regret a thing. The punch-ups with management; hanging out with villains; arrests; betting his way into the dole queue; the many professional what-ifs - its all part of Stan Bowles. This biography studies the football legend whose qualities were only matched by his flaws.show more
