The remarkable autobiography of the most troubled footballer of modern times. Andy Morrison was a cult hero with the fans of every club he ever played for and the inspirational skipper of Plymouth Argyle, Blackpool, Huddersfield Town and Manchester City. However, away from football it was a different story as he wrestled with alcoholism, violence and personal tragedy. Morrison does not hide his problems with drink, the fights with teammates and managers, the bar brawls, the pursuit of fans who abused him, the Crown Court trial that could have seen him jailed for five years, the conviction for benefit fraud or the traumatic events that wreaked havoc on his family. This is a wholly frank and honest book, painfully so at times, a moving account of one man's demons and how he has been fighting them for the best part of three decades.
