King for a Day - John Tudor

This book charts the life and times of a professional footballer in the 60's and 70's. It follows the highs and lows, triumphs and disasters of a life lived and dedicated to the pursuit of perfection on the football field. John Tudor rose through the ranks to play in the highest league in the English First Division. The journey took him from his home town in Ilkeston in Derbyshire to places and cities he may have never visited had he not been determined to play at the highest level. John's footballing journey took him to Coventry City, Sheffield United, Stoke City and eventually to Belgium with KAA Gent. His greatest success was as a feared striker at Newcastle United between 1971 and 1976 where his frontline partnership with Malcolm Macdonald proved extremely successful. The highlight of John's career was when he played at Wembley for Newcastle United in the 1974 Cup Final against Liverpool, although his team were defeated that day, John won the respect of fellow professionals and fans alike with his honest, brave and totally committed dispalys in every game he played, but injuries took their toll, as his reputation grew and he became a marked man. He played with skill, strength and courage and gave his all for his team mates. This book reveals the real truth of what went on behind the scenes at top football clubs and his thoughts on the men at the top in football. This story is a poignant mix of happiness and heartache, laced with some very amusing observations of a life lived in the fast lane by a player who lived every day to play the beautiful game of football.
