Ali, Pele, Lillee and Me PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ali, Pele, Lillee and Me free pdf Brian Viner's formative years as a sports nut coincided with what he argues was the best sporting decade of all time. The 1970s gave us the greatest football team in the history of the game. Muhammad Ali in his pomp. Red Rum. Gareth Edwards and rugby union's finest try. And, of course, Kevin Keegan falling off his bike on Superstars. When the decade ended, Viner was in his last year as a teenager. If he wasn't watching or playing sport during the ten years before that, then he was either at school or asleep. Or both, if it was one of Mr Ashworth's physics lessons. Hilarious and highly engaging, Viner's memoir also sheds light on some of his boyhood heroes through his adult encounters with them as a sports journalist, and is a must-read for sports fans of all ages.
