Norman Hunter was one of the greatest love-hate figures in football history. He played for Leeds during the 1960s and 1970s under the great Don Revie, earning himself the nickname 'Bites Yet Legs' due to his fierce tackling. However, this notorious reputation sometimes disguised the fact that he was a player of outstanding skill and talent; he won 28 caps for England and became the first ever footballer to achieve the Player of the Year award in 1973 from the Professional Footballers Association. Norman Hunter talks candidly about what it was like to gain a reputation as one of football's hard men, which at one memorable match resulted in a charge of misconduct by the FA. He reveals how he was witness to one of the most controversial chapters in Leeds United's history, the appointment of Brian Clough as successor to Don Revie, and recalls the stormy dressing room scenes that led up to Clough's sacking after only 44 days. Norman Hunter's fearless style in his playing days is reflected in his autobiography; his strong views and open recollections make for an intriguing story.
