'Without football, we were strangers under a shared roof. With it, we were father and son.' Inspired by his father's devotion to Newcastle United and the heroes of yesteryear, Duncan Hamilton brings to life a bygone age telling the story of British football from the hardscrabble 1940s and the 'never-had-it-so-good' '50s right through to the dowdy First Division of the '70s and '80s, and today's slick Premiership. Hamilton recalls some of football's most sublime players, managers and characters, from Bill Shankly and Jackie Milburn to George Best and Lionel Messi. But at the heart of The Footballer Who could Fly is Hamilton's relationship with his own father. Here he tells how football became the only real connection between two people who, apart from their love of the beautiful game, were wholly different from one another.
