Description

The Summerbee family is unique in that three successive generations have played professional football - George, the unsuccessful journeyman; Mike, who starred for Manchester City in their golden era; and now Nicky, who has played at the top level for City and Sunderland. Their careers have taken different paths, and the rewards have varied hugely, but in the end they all have to contend with disappointment and frustration. In this updated edition, the author shows how professional football affects them and also how their families cope with the dramatic changes in mood and success, where a bad day at the office can result in tens of thousands of fans screaming abuse or a good day brings mass adoration.
