About the author

Richard Murphy has followed England since being hooked as a schoolboy watching Ian Botham take on Australia in 1981. It’s been quite a ride – from being a nocturnal student listening to radio coverage from New Zealand to sitting at Edgbaston for the remarkable 2005 Ashes Test. Richard is a journalist and has written two books about Stoke City.
