The Matador : The Life and Career of Tony Currie, Paperback Book

The Matador : The Life and Career of Tony Currie Paperback


As one of the most complete and compelling English midfield schemers of his generation, Tony Currie could pass the ball long or short with either foot, could dictate the pace of a game and could surge past opponents with deceptive speed and contemptuous ease.

He was strong, skilful, athletic and difficult to dispossess in full flow - and he could score the kind of goals that mere mortal players could only dream of.

In the 70s, TC was the footballing equivalent of PT Barnum.

In a career that took in spells with Watford, Sheffield United, Leeds United, QPR and Torquay United, Currie was idolised by the supporters who flocked to see him play - and yet, like many of his era's so-called Mavericks, 17 international caps seemed scant reward for his lavish gifts.

This breathtaking, inspirational, fully authorised tribute marks the first full-scale appreciation of Tony Currie's life, career and achievements.
