During his career, he has played alongside or against, coached, interviewed, become friends with, or at least met pretty much every great name the game of football has ever produced. Needless to say, he has picked up some pretty good stories along the way. From Busby to Beckham, Garrincha to Gazza, Puskas to Pele, no one escapes Wilson's entertaining dissection of the game.Discover why the great Bill Shankly once locked him in a room at the Liverpool training ground and wouldn't let him out, why the legendary Brian Clough once insisted on getting him drunk before an interview, and what really happened in that infamous Arsenal and Man Utd tunnel punch-up between Vieira and Keane.It's clearly a sport he loves, and there is no question that reading his book will leave you remembering why football acquired the moniker 'The Beautiful Game'.
