I'll be Bert

‘The good thing about supporting City, son, is that you learn how to lose gracefully in life.’

This is an amusing story of hero worship, a broken neck, dreams, nightmares, forgiveness and redemption. A must for any football fan – or for anyone finding the smell of liniment vaguely erotic!
