In this comprehensive account of football's formative years, Norman Giller examines the Scottish influence on the English football scene, revealing how it was the Scots who dominated English football - William McGregor founded the Football League, Lord Kinnaird was the driving force behind the Football Association, George Ramsay masterminded Aston Villa's early domination of the League, while Liverpool's first league team was made up of ten Scots and an English goalkeeper! Here, too, are colourful portraits of the managers who have monopolised major domestic prizes: Sir Matt Busby, Bill Shankly, Tommy Docherty, Dave Mackay, Jock Stein, Graeme Souness, Kenny Dalglish, George Graham and Sir Alex Ferguson, and this fascinating book also contains a biopic on every post-war footballer capped by Scotland while playing for an English club, including such major players as Hughie Gallacher, Alex James, Billy Liddell, Jim Baxter, John White, Billy Bremner, Peter Lorimer, Ian St John, Denis Law, Frank McLintock, Martin Buchan, Archie Gemmill, Lou Macari, Gordon Strachan and Alan Hansen.
