About the Author

Jon Henderson, a sportswriter for more than 45 years, has reported events from around the world working for Reuters and national newspapers, including the Observer and Guardian. His assignments included five Olympic Games and two World Cups. He is the author of two previous books, Best of British and The Last Champion The Life of Fred Perry.


"Portrays a lost world of heavy balls, burly strikers, fog-bound pitches, GBP20-a-week wages, and teams who would travel to away matches by train and walk to the ground from the station" -- Blake Morrison Guardian "Sports Book of the Year. Henderson's fine biography catches the magic that made the man in the No 7 shirt a figure of worldwide renown" -- Richard Williams Guardian "A marvellous, well-written biography that doesn't shirk from exploring controversial episodes in Sir Stan's life" Press Association "Henderson succeeds in digging deeper, revealing a more complex character. Fallouts with managers, private dramas. It's fascinating stuff!" Four Four Two "Conveys the ethos of football in a bygone age, when money was secondary to sportsmanship and even world-famous players would take the bus to the ground" -- David Robson Sunday Telegraph
