My Gentleman Jim Book

Product code: BOO00001

The life and Times of the famous footballing legend Jimmy Hill.

Jimmy Hill, footballing legend, known for his punditry, his charisma and his chin… End of story? Far from it, as his wife Bryony eloquently shows in this fascinating insight into her multi-talented husband.

Starting his career playing for Brentford and then Fulham, Jimmy went on to become involved in the game at many other levels, being the man who introduced 3 points for a win and removed the maximum wage cap for footballers – as well as the only ex-professional player to be manager, director, managing director and chairman.

Jimmy Hill’s mark on football is undisputed. But did you know that he was also, in his day, a keen golfer, huntsman, indefatigable charity fundraiser - and even songwriter? Arsenal and Coventry both have Jimmy to thank for their club songs!

Sadly, in his latter years, Jimmy has succumbed to the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease, and Bryony finishes this candid but loving tribute by describing the devastating effect this has had on both their lives.
