Biting Talk - My Autobiography
by Norman Hunter
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 Yer Legs’ due to his fierce tackling.
However, beneath the notorious reputation 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. He reveals how he was witness to one of the most controversial chapters in Leeds United’s history, and recalls the stormy dressing room scenes that led up to Brian 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.
