Richard Edghill made his Premiership debut at 17 and was soon an England Under-21 international. A pacy defender who could play anywhere across the back four, he caught the eye of England manager Terry Venables; but a devastating knee injury then sidelined him for 21 months, by which time his beloved Manchester City were headed for the third division. Rather than jump ship Edghill stayed to lead the revival back to the Premiership. With three promotions and three relegations at City, serving under nine managers and three different chairmen, the ups and downs of Richard's rollercoaster career will strike a chord with any City fan who went through similar agonies and ecstasies. A scapegoat, a dreamer, a fiercely loyal Premier League star: although Richard never enjoyed the huge salaries or adulation of some of his colleagues, Once a Blue Always a Blue presents an overwhelmingly human story.
