The Bob Booker Story
Dimensions each: 22cm x 14cm
OOH-AHH BOB BOOKAH ......
And so begins one of the most iconic chants in football. A chant for a cult hero who was renowned for his hard work, tenacity, honesty, and graciousness. A chant for a player who left everything on the pitch.
OOH-AAH details Bob Booker's journey as he made his way from the factory bench to the First Division, serving Brentford and Sheffield United with distinction, and captaining the Blades as they rose from the Third Division to the First in consecutive seasons. In a rollercoaster career that spanned almost five decades, Bob was a crucial part of teams - as either a player or coach - that celebrated six promotions and suffered three relegations.
With contributions from former teammates, managers, and friends, the real Bob Booker is revealed in all his complexities. It is the kind, friendly, and humorous Bob that we all expected to find but also one who demonstrated grit, determination, courage, inner strength, guile, and perseverance to forge such a long and successful career for himself.
