Synopsis

Bryan Robson is widely remembered as a fearless and inspirational player and captain, both for club and country, whose presence lifted team-mates and intimidated opponents. At his peak, he was acknowledged as the most complete midfield player in the country, and played at the highest level despite a series of devastating injuries. He began his playing career at West Bromwich Albion, then moved to Manchester United in 1981 for a then record British transfer fee of £1.5 million. He soon became captain, and enjoyed regular Cup success, eventually winning the Championship. He also won 90 caps for England, 65 of them as captain. His autobiography reveals a fascinating insight into his days with the England and United camps and characters such as Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker, Roy Keane and Alex Ferguson. He puts the record straight on the 'drink culture' that Ferguson sought to stamp out at United, and describes his pain when he discovered he was surplus to the manager's requirements. He candidly reflects on the highs and lows of his football life, and discusses incidents on the pitch as well as some of the clashes that have happened behind the scenes.

Robbo-My Autobiography
March 4th, 2015
One of England, Manchester United, and arguably, one of the Worlds' greatest players, one of my all time heroes and one of the nicest blokes you could meet. This choice of book was a no brainier for me and it didn't disappoint. If you love the beautiful game then get reading this story of a great player who played the game the right way, hard but fair. He obviously made a very good living from the sport he loved but how much could he have made in today's crazy, money obsessed days? Goodness knows how much he'd be worth today, but I for one feel privileged to have watched him play.
