Steak Diana Ross: Diary of a Football Nobody (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


News that Billy Ivory, whose screenplay and creative credits include Made In Dagenham, Common as Muck and Women and Love, has scripted a stage version of Steak...Diana Ross called Diary of a Football Nobody for the Nottingham Playhouse, prompted a reprint and update of this book that tells the story of two seasons in the life of a fledgling footballer through extracts from his contemporary diaries. A nostalgic, hilarious and at times poignant journey back to the 1970s, a land of flares, kipper ties and Ford Cortinas when some professional players caught the bus to work and all of them drank copiously to numb the horrors of disco, platform shoes and Slade.
