    One thought on “Ali, Pele, Lillee And Me: A Personal Odyssey Through The Sporting Seventies”

    1. Any Brit born in the early sixties will find numerous reminders of their childhood in this reflection of the author's teenage years watching various sports. If you are a fellow Lancastrian and Everton fan, like the author, every chapter is a delight (if not, you will find the book becomes less parochial and more broadly enjoyable as the author moves on from football and cricket to golf, rugby (union), boxing, tennis, Olympics, horse racing and sport on TV).
