'We were the first generation to have to deal with the modern stardom of football. Some handled it better than others' - George Best.

Written in the months before he died, "Hard Tackles and Dirty Baths" is George's farewell letter to the great footballing era in which he burned so brightly - a personal history of the golden years before money and marketing changed everything. From the breaking of the maximum wage to the cusp of the first million pound player, it follows the triumphs of tragedies of every season from 1960 to 1974. It is the story of our greatest footballing generation - Greaves, Moore, Law, Charlton, Osgood, Lorimer, Jennings, Hirst and, of course, Best himself.
