About the Author:

HUNTER DAVIES is the author of the only ever authorised biography of The Beatles, still in print in almost every country in the world. In 2012 he edited The Lennon Letters, published in 20 different foreign countries, and in 2014 The Beatles Lyrics. He wrote the first book about the Quarrymen. Plus forty other non-Beatly books, including novels, biographies, travel and children's books. As a journalist, he has a column in The Sunday Times about money and in the New Statesman about football. SPENCER LEIGH is the author of 25 books, most of them connected with The Beatles or popular music. He writes music obituaries for the Independent and for 25 years has had his own music programme on BBC Radio Merseyside. KEITH BADMAN is an author, journalist and film and video archives researcher. He has written or contributed to ten books about popular music, including four on The Beatles, and been a columnist for Record Collector magazine for 20 years. . He assisted with the archive film and video research on The Beatles Anthology series. DAVID BEDFORD is the author of two books about the beginnings and history of The Beatles in Liverpool. He is currently Chairman of the Governors at Dovedale Juniors, the Liverpool school attended by John Lennon and George Harrison.

Review:

"Still the definitive football text . . . this book is indispensable" * FourFourTwo * "The Glory Game engages the mind while revealing the soul of the beautiful game" * The Herald * "Brilliant, anthropological account of life with Tottenham in 1973, before there were press officers and brand managers" -- David Goldblatt, author of the World Football Yearbook

Descripción Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. When the first edition of The Glory Game was published in 1972, it was instantly hailed as the most insightful book about the life of a football club ever published. Hunter Davies was, and still is, the only author ever to be allowed into the inner sanctum of a top-level football team (Tottenham Hotspur) and his pen spared nothing and no one. His accuracy is sufficiently uncanny to be embarrassing, wrote Bob Wilson in the New Statesman. Brilliant, vicious, unmerciful, wrote The Sun. Davies spent a whole season with the team, training with them, visiting the players homes and witnessing the dressing-room confrontations. In the modern era of painstaking media management and tight security, no sportswriter will ever again be granted such unprecedented access. While some features of the game have changed beyond all recognition - notably the all-consuming role that money now plays - inside every club the dramas and tensions revealed by Davies remain, making the book a timeless classic and securing its position as one of the best books about football ever written.
