There's an Awful Lot of Bubbly in Brazil : The Life and Times of a Bon Viveur, Hardback Book

There's an Awful Lot of Bubbly in Brazil : The Life and Times of a Bon Viveur Hardback


This is a tale about a boy from the back streets of Glasgow who rose from being a fanatical Celtic fan to leading Scotland's World Cup attack with Kenny Dalglish.

It is also the tale of a bon viveur, a 'champagne charlie' who lives life to the full.

With a shock of curly ginger hair and feet of fire, Brazil was to shine at Ipswich under the wing of Sir Bobby Robson.

It coincided with the Suffolk club's most successful ever era, culminating in winning the UEFA Cup in 1981.

Following an early retirement because of a back injury, Brazil forged a new career in the media where his insight and keen sense of humour took him to the heights as a football presenter and commentator on TV and as the star of talkSPORT's award-winning radio show "The Sports Breakfast".

Funny and controversial by turns, "There's An Awful Lot of Bubbly in Brazil" will entertain and amuse all followers of football as well as the multitude of fans of his radio show.
