Details: Archie Gemmill is synonymous with Scottish football. Scorer of one of the greatest goals in World Cup history, Gemmill looks back at a hugely successful career in England, Scotland and on the international scene, in his long-awaited autobiography. Archie Gemmill's autobiography is the story of a spiky 70s football hero, who rose to captain Scotland, scored one of the greatest ever World Cup goals against Holland in Argentina in 1978 and won the title at Derby and Nottingham Forest under the late Brian Clough. Archie never shied away from a tackle in his twenty-year professional career and he is just as forthright when remembering his bitter clashes with characters such as Jock Stein, Ally MacLeod and Tommy Docherty. In his fast-moving story, he reveals for the first time the truth behind his omission from Forest's European Cup-winning team; how sticking up for Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness cost him his Scotland job; how Ally MacLeod stripped him of the Scotland captaincy; and details his long-running feud with Tommy Docherty, who made him a scapegoat for defeat by England and led to a three-year exile from the Scotland team. Featuring a foreword by his great friend, the late Brian Clough, this is a compelling story highlighting the glory and agony of a lifetime spent in football.
