Joe Royle became the youngest player to play for Everton in February 1966 when he replaced Alex Young, the Golden Vision, under controversial circumstances for a league game in Blackpool.  Royle went on to win six England caps under Alf Ramsey and Don Revie.  Injury forced a premature end to his career at 32, after spells with Manchester City, Bristol City, and Norwich.  Then he became the manager who fell off the back of a lorry when joining Oldham in 1982.  Fourteen fantastic, fairytale years followed at the hard-up, homespun Lancashire club which Royle put on the soccer map.  Oldham achieved the impossible by going to Wembley and spending three years in the Premiership.  Then, it was off back to Everton his real love, to Manchester City, and to Ipswich as manager.  With a foreword by Sir Alex Ferguson, this book is an honest account of Joe's career and life, written with his full cooperation. [Err... if it's his autobiography, that means he wrote it!!!!]
