Ali, Pele, Lillee and Me – Brian Viner


Ali, Pele, Lillee and Me: A Personal Odyssey Through the Sporting Seventies, by Brian Viner, is an absolutely delightful book. I loved it, and may write a long review of it soon.

Here’s a funny line from this book:

……….I should also admit to being very fond of the question: which four Formula One drivers share or shared their first names or surnames with places in Scotland, the answer of course being Stirling Moss, Johnny Dumfries, Eddie Irvine and Ayr Town Center.

Read it, if you were one of those kids who stayed late at night watching Becker win against Anders Jarryd and Kevin Curran at Wimbledon, or still reminisce Azharuddin’s magical entry to test cricket, or the even more magical Mexico ’86 World Cup.
