When Stuart Pearce arrived at Nottingham Forest as a 23-year-old, he advertised his business as an electrician in the club programme. This down-to-earth attitude, in an era of superstar prima donnas, and his total commitment on the pitch, immediately earned him the affection of the club's fans, who nicknamed him Psycho. He became almost as influential character at the club as the man who brought him there, Brian Clough. This book reveals the story of one of football's greatest personalities.
Stuart Pearce began his career at non-League Wealdstone, before signing for Coventry City. Two years later he joined Nottingham Forest and stayed there for 12 years, eventually becoming player-manager. In 1997 he moved to Newcastle United, continuing his career at West Ham United until becoming player-coach at Manchester City. He won 78 England caps.
