Mick Quinn, the boy from a Liverpool council estate dubbed 'Little Beirut', always loved his birds, booze and betting. They said Mick had a sixth sense for great accuracy in his playing days - he could find a party from any range. Quinn says he only put £50 on each horse race - but liked to stay in the bookies for twenty races a day! Sentenced in 1987 to three weeks in prison for twice driving whilst banned, Mick's been accused of punching Peter Schmeichel on the football pitch and John Fashanu off it. On retirement, though, Quinn switched to horse racing, the Sport of Kings, but controversy led the blue bloods of racing to hang the scouse oik out to dry and he was suspended from training for two and a half years. Who Ate All The Pies? is the funniest and most honest football book you'll read for a long, long time.

In the book authorized author Stephen Hamilton Nicol secures personal and exclusive interviews and comments from famous players, managers, coaches - past and present including Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, John Greig and Bertie Auld. It has a touch of humour - with Bobby telling us of the day he asked his wife, Betty, if she would like to go to the United States for their honeymoon. Ecstatic at the thought of a great trip she naturally said "yes."what she didnt know was Bobby was also taking 18 players from his youth team along with them - to play in a football tournament there. Its educational - where we learn the true meaning and origins of the most annoying football phrases, metaphors and clichs. Inspiring - how a quiet, unassuming and private man took an industrial declined community and pumped vitality and self-assurance into the heart of its dwellers. The book, naturally written in English, even supplies the reader with a vernacular index for readers outside the Glaswegian dialect. how thoughtful! If youre looking for a typical football bio then youve definitely come to the wrong place: its more than that!
