Over a long and exciting career which took him from the groundstaff at Anfield to a crucial role as part of one of the most consistently succesful football clubs, Tommy Smith MBE was raerly out of the news. As one of the strongest members of the Liverpool teams in the 1960’s and 1970’s he contributed much to making LFC the most well-known and respected initials in the world.
In his own words he relates the inside story behind that career: life under the legendary Shankly, injuries which threatened to end his playing days, pen portraits of his fellow players, the triumphs of the League and the FA Cup and, above all, the European Cup.
Tommy Smith also evaluates his time as captain, and all the problems and rewards, with his customary directness.
The result is a powerful book which will appeal not only to the hundreds of thousands of Liverpool fans but to football lovers everywhere.
