THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER AND SHORTLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR `Immaculate footballer. Imperial defender. Immortal hero of 1966. Master of Wembley. Captain extraordinary. Gentleman of all time.' With these words, inscribed beneath the statue of England's World Cup-winning captain, the nation remembers Bobby Moore. But what do we really know about this iconic figure? Pele called him the greatest - and fairest - defender he ever played against. His feats for West Ham United and England are legendary and his technical mastery of the game years ahead of its time. Yet off the pitch, Moore knew scandal, bankruptcy, divorce and drink. He endured a string of business failures and maintained links with the East End underworld. Ignored by the football world post-retirement, this great of the game drifted into obscurity and, famously, was never honoured with a knighthood. Acclaimed football writer Matt Dickinson traces the journey of this Essex boy who became the patron saint of English football, peeling away the layers of legend and looking at Moore's life from all sides - in triumph, in failure, in full. `This should be essential, sobering reading for anyone who cares about West Ham, England or English football' Metro

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Brilliant" -- Oliver Holt * Daily Mirror *
"Devastating. No ghosted autobiography can match the nuanced insight of the latest book on Bobby Moore, a hero flawed by alcohol" -- Ian Herbert * Independent *
"Well-researched and written, this book brings us the real Bobby Moore" -- Matthew Syed * The Times *
"A tragic tale, admirably researched and poignantly told" -- Nick Pitt * Sunday Times *
"It's an immaculately researched voyage of discovery into a footballing enigma. We'll never know the man in full, but this comes close" -- Ben East * Metro *
