Product Description

 

The number of words written about George Best 
would fill a small library. The stories of his 
gambling, womanising and drinking are as well known 
as his footballing exploits. This though was not the 
Irishman's choice, George was ultimately only 
interested in the footballing. Phil Hughes was 
George's best friend and agent for almost 20 years. 
On numerous occasions, George told him that he 
would like to be remembered for his football - so 
Phil decided his wish should be committed to print. 
Paul Collier had worked with Phil and George and his 
knowledge of everything Best made him the ideal 
person to compile the book. Remember Me For My 
Football contains all the facts and statistics of 
George's career. Every match from his first 
appearances at junior level through to his last 
testimonial and charity appearances are listed along 
with other interesting facts and figures. While 
other publications may claim to be the definitive 
Best book - this one simply is. Supported by George 
from its conception, it is the ultimate tribute to one 
of the world's greatest footballers.
============================================
For all fans of the Belfast Boy Wonder, this book is 
what we've all been waiting for - a detailed account 
of George Best's playing career. From his glorious 
performances in Manchester United's successful 
teams in the late '60s, through his headline-
grabbing appearances for Northern Ireland, to his 
lesser known matches playing for the likes of the 
Jewish Guild in Johannesburg, this authorative 
account covers every game that Best appeared in - 
including every guest appearance in a variety of 
friendlies and testimonials. There are some 
fascinating facts and figures in there - and the book 
looks great too; just like its eponymous hero. Whilst 
there have been numerous books that have covered 
Best's womanising and drinking, this splendid tome is 
purely interested in his playing career - something 
which George Best's talent thoroughly deserves. And 
don't bother to look for any mistakes or omissions 
in there because I suspect you won't find any (one 
or two minor typos excepted). As detailed an 
account as you're likely to find.
