Robin Friday was an exceptional footballer who should have played for England. But he never did—why? Because Robin Friday was a man who would not bow down to anyone, who refused to take life seriously, and who lived every moment as if it were his last. Loved and admired by everyone who saw him, Friday also had a dark side—troubled, strong-minded, reckless, he would end up destroying himself. Tragically, after years of alcohol and drug abuse, he died at the age of 38 without ever having fulfilled his potential. This book provides the first full appreciation of a man too long forgotten by the world of football.
