The Human Face Of Football

A fascinating look at football from the NME, 12 May, 1979.
Laurie Cunningham is of particular interest. He’d come from ‘East London’s unfashionable Orient’ to West Bromwich Albion where, along with the mercurial Cyrille Regis and Brendon Batson, he became one of a trio of dynamic Black footballers known as ‘The Three Degrees’. He truly was talent.
Gillingham’s manager, Gerry Summers is also interviewed and the legendary Brian Moore. He achieved a bit of musical fame when Half man Half Biscuit included the line: ‘Brian Moore’s head looks uncannily like London Planetarium‘ in their song Dickie Davies Eyes.
