Best, Worthington, Hudson, Currie – all legendary performers whose off-field lives were as colourful as their football skills and unbending belief in ‘entertainment first’. Now Elliot Huntley’s inspirational The Matador provides the true stories behind the myths for fans who watched Tony Currie every week.
In the 70s, the flamboyant schemer was the footballing equivalent of PT Barnum. In a career that took in spells with Watford, Sheffield United, Leeds United, QPR and Torquay United, Currie was idolised by the supporters who flocked to see him play – and yet, like many of his era’s most gifted players, 17 international caps seemed scant reward for his lavish gifts.
Currie remains idolised by fans of QPR, Leeds and especially Sheffield United where he still works as an ambassador, having recently been voted the Blades’ greatest ever player.
It’s hard to believe that The Matador is the first full-scale appreciation of maverick midfield ace Tony Currie’s life, career and achievements.
