Description - John Robertson: Super Tramp by John Robertson
The unprecedented success of Nottingham Forest under master manager Brian Clough is one of the greatest stories in football folklore. Winning the European Cup in 1979 and 1980 were the remarkable highlights of that era in the club's history, and the player at the heart of those glories was winger John Robertson. His unkempt and unshaven appearance made him the most unlikely of star footballers but his artistry and vision made him the creative on-the-field force behind a Forest side that swept all before them. After retiring from playing, Robertson struck up a wonderfully successful managerial partnership with Martin O'Neill at Leicester, Celtic and Aston Villa. Yet amid his years of football fame, Robertson has known moments of deep personal tragedy. In John Robertson- Super Tramp, the football legend reveals all in a humorous memoir that switches engagingly between footballing glory and personal heartache.
