Malcolm Allen: Hunangofiant

Malcolm Allen  Other books by Malcolm Allen

This is the emosional and honest biography of one of Wales' best known soccer players, as he oscillated between the highs and lows associated with the sport. From playing for Kevin Keegan in Newcastle and for Terry Yorath in the Wales team, Malcolm Allen achieved everything he dreamed of as a footballer. But he also suffered terrible disappointments, including a footballer's worst fear when a knee injury forced him to end his career prematurely at the age of 28. Malcolm was one of football's most colourful characters, and he gave in to the temptations of alcohol and gambling during his lowest points. He quarrelled with several managers and spent the night in the police cells on more than one occasion, not to mention bars and clubs until the early hours with some of the sport's greatest players... But he came through it all and learned to cope with his injuries and his problems until he became one of the sport's most likeable and discerning commentators in Welsh media. Here he presents his life story in an outspoken way, and gives his opinions on managers and the world of football in Wales and beyond, and expresses the pride he feels after being given the opportunity to return to work in Wales and through the medium of Welsh.
