From the publisher:
Alan Dicks' football career spanned the second half of the 20th century. During those fifty years the game fundamentally changed and Dicksy was there, playing his part, when history was made. In Chelsea's first ever League title win in 1955.
Double promotion glory alongside Jimmy Hill at Coventry City in the 1960s. Boss at Bristol City for thirteen extraordinary years until 1980. And then managing teams around the world.
At Ashton Gate, he built a side on a shoestring budget and an indestructible spirit, becoming a national figure. A living legend to Robins' fans, taking the club up to the top flight after a sixty-five-year wait, it's part of an amazing football tale of a time when loyalty meant more than money. Football has waited over thirty years to hear his story.
Finally, here it is.
