Description

The story of West Brom legend Ally Robertson - a rock in a team that oozed finesse and flamboyance with its Three Degrees intoxicating a nation. He also led rivals Wolves to two divisional titles and a Wembley trophy. But beyond the dressing-room camaraderie and on-pitch aggression, Robertson now reveals a more reflective side to his character.

About the author

Bill Howell grew up in North Wales as a West Brom fan after his dad bought him a Johnny Giles 10 shirt. That love affair continued in Cockermouth, Cumbria, at Liverpool University, on Aberdeen's Evening Express and the Sunday Mercury. To his horror, he spent nine years at the Birmingham Mail covering Aston Villa and the next five covering Wolves. Married to Jennifer they have three boys: William (14), George Cyrille (12) and Henry (10).
