About Dave Bowler

Beautifully illustrated, with rare archive material, the book will be a pastiche of a 1950s football annual. Aimed at the Christmas gift/nostalgia market (for the older, more discerning fan). Having written critically acclaimed biographies of Bill Shankly, Danny Blanchflower, Alf Ramsey and a recent history of the England team, Dave Bowler's contacts in the world of football veterans are second to none: features interviews with Bobby Robson, Don Howe, Malcolm Allison and Walter Winterbottom among others. There have been best-selling accounts of the lives of contemporary journeymen footballers (Gary Nelson, Steve Claridge, Tony Cascarino) - this will be the first from another era.show more
