KEEP FIGHTING: The Billy Bremner Story

PAUL HARRISON    Book Number: 87345    Product format: Paperback

"I have always been in awe of Billy Bremner, the player. His passion and commitment to Leeds United and football will never be surpassed. In a game, he was tireless and hard - very hard." - Johann Kruyff, 2012. Without doubt, the footballer Billy Bremner was a fine ambassador for Leeds United and Scotland. A football legend, during his playing years he was one of the all-time greats. When he died in 1997 at the age of just 54, Paul Harrison was working with him on a new book telling the story of his life. Now that unique material from those extensive interviews has been brought to life. In his own words find out what Billy thought of life, about his exploits for Scotland, his footballing friends and those he clashed with. There are stories of winning the League Championship and the FA Cup with Leeds, playing for Scotland in the World Cup, his controversial ban from international football, and the libel action he won against a Sunday newspaper. And there's Bremner's own forthright views about some of the biggest names in football from Don Revie to Brian Clough and Gary Sprake to Kevin Keegan. Remember the fire at Nottingham Forest where all the club's historical records, all irreplaceable, along with various trophies were destroyed in a blaze probably caused by a discarded cigarette in the dressing room area? Here are bad performances and memorable games. "An undefeated run of nine league games came to a halt at Maine Road as Manchester City ran out 3-1 winners. Leeds couldn't get into their game as City pummelled them from the outset... The media began to foretell of cracks." Includes playing career tables. 208pp in paperback.
