FROM watching SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY and ENGLAND in the golden year of 1966 to football in the age of Covid 19, Owls idol TERRY CURRAN shoots from the hip as he explores the good, bad and ugly sides of the ‘beautiful game’.
He introduces you to ‘greats’ GEORGE BEST, ALAN BALL and BRIAN CLOUGH who inspired his own exciting and unpredictable career and reveals his explosive but close relationship with JACK CHARLTON.
From rock bottom DONCASTER ROVERS to First Division champions EVERTON, TC lit up the game with his blistering pace and appetite for the unexpected. Yet his heart was always with THE OWLS whose rise and fall he writes of as a fan as well as a never-to-be-forgotten player. A footballer, who always did things his way, TC’s views on modern day football are also ‘out of the box’. He explains why coaching methods have left his club and country behind the times – and calls for radical change. There’s humour and slapstick from one of football’s great characters who refuses to compromise the principles he learnt playing for Clough’s FOREST.
