Gray Matters : My Autobiography Paperback
by Andy Gray
Andy Gray has been at the forefront of British football for over three decades.
Now, for the first time, he tells his own remarkable story, and that of the modern game.
From a fanatical footballing household in Glasgow, Andy worked his way to become a teenage prodigy at Dundee.
But it was in England that Andy's name was cemented as one of Europe's top strikers.
At Aston Villa he scored 69 goals in 141 appearances and remains the only footballer to win both the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year in the same season.
Greater glories awaited him at Everton, where he won the League, the FA Cup and the European Cup Winners Cup.
These triumphs along with the inspiring (and infuriating) managers, the goals, the games and the fans are vividly brought to life while also explaining how the game was evolving around him.
He also describes the early days of Sky Television, and the temptation of becoming a manager. Andy Gray is unique in tracing a line from the beginnings of the modern game to the Premiership, while still remaining passionate and impartial.

Review by jigwagigiggs
A good account of both Grays career and the era in which he played. This is more the Andy Gray that first started on Sky Sports who was liked by all, prior to all those terrible computer gadgets and the likes on his shows. A player who always seemed loved by his fans and in this book clearly the feeling was mutual. My own memories as a kid was of a man who even when I didnt know what the words meant did more than his fair share of swearing when the pitchside cameras were on him (not intentional of course). If only he was still playing today with the amount of camera's each game has he'd be a comedic lip readers/ lads mag dream.
