Description

'A powerful chronicle of the transformation of English football and society through the prism of two very different characters' Irish Times Jack was open, charismatic, selfish and pig-headed; Bobby was guarded, shy, polite and reserved to the point of reclusiveness. Jack was a gangling central defender who developed a profound tactical intelligence; Bobby an athletic attacking midfielder who disdained systems. Yet the Charlton brothers both enjoyed great success as football players and together, for England, they won the World Cup. Two Brothers is both the story of the most famous football players of their generation and an account of late-twentieth-century English football: the tensions between flair and industry, between individuality and the collective, between right and left, between middle- and working-classes, between exile and home. 'Wilson is meticulous in providing all manner of nuggets' Sports Books of the Year, The Times 'Gripping' Daily Mail 'Moving... chronicles two remarkable lives' Guardian
