Grinders : The Remarkable Story of Leicester City Football Club in the 1990s Paperback / softback
Grinders: The Remarkable Inside Story of Leicester City Football Club in the 1990s offers a nostalgic trip to an era packed with success, agony and controversy, recalled by the players and managers who made history.
Set against a backdrop of low attendances, hostile atmospheres and the 1991 Great Escape, new manager Brian Little revolutionised the club with three consecutive Wembley play-off finals and a return to the top flight in 1994.
Little set the groundwork for the Martin O'Neill years, when City fans enjoyed promotion, three League Cup finals, two trophies, European football and four consecutive top-ten Premier League finishes.
But that's only half the story: there's also the Pleat years, two agonising play-off final defeats, Little and Mark McGhee's resignations, the Gang of Four's boardroom battle, La Manga and the departures of O'Neill and Emile Heskey.
Grinders is the story of a group of players who never knew when they were beaten, transforming themselves from second-tier nearly men, to the greatest pub side in the world.
