Scoring - An Expert's Guide

£3.99

Product description

Frank McAvennie knows all about scoring - goals, women, drugs. He's an expert. A cult figure on the streets of Glasgow and London, the original and lasting lads' hero footballer, McAvennie's life is peppered with sporting highs, beautiful women, outrageous acts, the company of stars, court appearances and imprisonment for drug dealing. This book is not just about sports, crime, drugs, sex or kiss and tell - it is all that and more.

This is Frank McAvennie's story - and of those he has known, told candidly for the first time. Find out how he came to be interviewed in connection with the murder of two women. Boozing with Tony Adams in backroom bars. The bevy of Page Three beauties. The real reason he was only to win five caps for Scotland. Being smuggled through immigration without a passport. How on two separate occasions he had the chance to become the first Roman Catholic to be signed by Rangers. Partying with Elton John and Rod Stewart. His time in Tokyo and his return to Europe with the Japanese police on his tail and how he is still wanted for several offences in the Far East. The cocaine years. His imprisonment in Durham jail. The kissing and telling. Here, for the first time, is the true story of one of the game's most popular rascals.
