As one of the most complete and compelling English midfield schemers of his generation, Tony Currie could pass the ball long or short with either foot, could dictate the pace of a game and could surge past opponents with deceptive speed and contemptuous ease. He was strong, skilful, athletic and difficult to dispossess in full flow - and he could score the kind of goals that mere mortal players could only dream of. In the 70s, TC was the footballing equivalent of PT Barnum. In a career that took in spells with Watford, Sheffield United, Leeds United, QPR and Torquay United, Currie was idolised by the supporters who flocked to see him play - and yet, like many of his era's so-called Mavericks, 17 international caps seemed scant reward for his lavish gifts. This breathtaking, inspirational, fully authorised tribute marks the first full-scale appreciation of Tony Currie's life, career and achievements.
