Emlyn Hughes : A Tribute to the Crazy Horse, Hardback

Emlyn Hughes : A Tribute to the Crazy Horse Hardback


England and Liverpool captain Emlyn Hughes will be remembered as somebody who did everything to the maximum.

Whether it was a swashbuckling footballer whose style earned him the nickname Crazy Horse, or as a television quiz show captain who rubbed shoulders with royalty, Emlyn Hughes never did things by half.

He made his name at Liverpool, making 665 appearances between 1967 and 1979, helping the club to four league titles, an FA Cup victory and two UEFA Cup titles.

He also helped establish the club as the top team in Europe, leading the side to its first European Cup in 1977.

Phil Thompsn looks back on the life of the legend who later carved out a career for himself in the media, where his face became known to non-football fans as the cheeky, long-serving captain on "A Question of Sport".
