IT'S 1992 AND COVENTRY CITY ARE FACING ASTON VILLA. PLAYING UP FRONT FOR CITY IS MICK QUINN, A 14-STONE SCOUSER COMPLETE WITH ROGUISH MOUSTACHE AND UNMISSABLE MULLET HAIRSTYLE. Villa's fans belt out another chorus of ' Who ate all the pies?' at Quinn, who has barely touched the ball all game. Suddenly he latches on to a through ball and with a lightning turn beats his defender and thumps the ball into the net. 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 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 pitch and John Fashanu off it. On retirement, though, Quinn switched to 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.
