Gordon Milne: Shankly, My Dad and Me

Gordon Milne, Steve Younger

Regular price £25.00

Tax included.

From the publisher:

Shankly, My Dad and Me is the fascinating story of Gordon Milne, one of Bill Shankly's first and most important Anfield signings, who played a key part in transforming Liverpool into a footballing dynasty. Moulded by his footballing father, Gordon was a successful player, manager and administrator at home and abroad. He played with, for, worked alongside and managed some of football's most legendary names: Finney, Moore, Mortensen, Greaves and Lineker to name a few.

Capped 14 times by Sir Alf Ramsey, he narrowly missed out on selection for the World Cup-winning squad in 1966. But this book is not about games, goals or medals; for Gordon, facts and figures remain secondary. Instead, this enthralling account spans six decades of an incredible journey through the game and his encounters along the way.

From Preston to Newcastle via Liverpool, Blackpool, Wigan, Coventry, Leicester, Turkey and Japan, Gordon recounts his tale with honesty, humility and humour, while remaining eternally grateful for a bout of glandular fever! With forewords by Mark Lawrenson and Gary Lineker.
