The book cover has no visible wear, and the dust jacket (if applicable) is included for hard covers. Now as a non-Leeds United fan and given my view that the film is deeply fictionalised for cinematic effect, I don’t have the same misgivings or deep rooted anger towards the film as many of the Elland Road faithful have. However, for the England national side dark clouds gather as they miss out on qualification for the 1974 World Cup finals in West Germany.When Revie left in 1977 to become manager of the United Arab Emirates national team, Cocker followed as his assistant. Cocker's expertise shines through as he imparts valuable knowledge on nutrition and its impact on performance.

England senior manager Sir Alf Ramsey noted this as “it showed that he (Cocker) would influence, for the better, the player’s future conduct” and was no doubt part of Ramsey’s decision to promote Cocker to trainer of the senior England squad and therefore a key part of the 1966 World Cup preparations.

In a Under 23 friendly in Vienna, Alan Ball was sent off with Les providing a consoling arm to the distraught player. This interview forms part of Chapter 2, taking Cocker’s story up to the point of him accepting his first coaching role at Luton Town in 1959.
