All this and more as Rob Steen recreates the early seventies,the era when football joined the vanguard of English youth culture.This wry,evocative,highly personal account revolves around seven Englishmen who followed the trail blazed by football's first tabloid star,George Best: Stan Bowles, Tony Currie, Charlie George, Alan Hudson, Rodney Marsh, Peter Osgood and Frank Worthington.Proud individuals amid an increasingly corporate environment,their invention and artistry were matched only by a profound disdain for authority and convention.Scorning compromise in the face of envy and provocation,their belief in football as performance art,as showbiz,gave the national game a much-needed boost, elevating them to cult status.During their heyday,nevertheless,they were largely ignored by a succession of England managers,none of whom was able to assemble a side competent enough to qualify for the World Cup finals.                          Against a backdrop of increasing violence on field and terrace alike,of battles between players and establishment,this book examines an anomaly at the heart of English culture,one that symbolised the death of post-Sixties optimism,the end of innocence., SCOTLAND.EDINBURGH.MAINSTREAM PUBLISHING,1994., Novato, California: Presidio Press, 2001.
