But yeah, great writer. Made a three part documentary called something like The Football Men, with an episode on Matt Busby, Bill Shankly & Jock Stein. One of the very best I've seen.
I'm not quite so anti Lawton as you, but I do feel slightly queasy sometimes when he ramps up the sanctimony, as is his increasing wont.
Yes, I saw the series about Busby, Shankly & Stein. Absolutely magnificent it was too.
btw nothing whatsoever to do with this thread, but have you caught 'Punk Britannia' on BBC 4? Well worth catching.
