|About the Book|
Stoke City legend Terry Conroy lifts the lid on how the great Potters side of the early 1970s took on the giants of the day in epic encounters, and often won. How they almost won the league, and proved worthy opponents of Europes finest- and how the fans favorite ginger winger scored one and created the other goal in Stokes first major trophy win at Wembley. Terrys tales take in Hudson, Greenhoff, Banks, Best, Charlton, and Redknapp. He talks about his rollercoaster international career with the Republic of Ireland, both as player and as assistant—and also reveals the cost of playing with cortisone injections, the impact of a drinking culture on the clubs potential success, and how he won his own personal battles. A fabulous story of a life lived to the full—a delight for all Stoke City fans, lovers of 1970s culture, and soccer supporters in general.
