Description

In 1962, Jimmy Adamson had the world at his feet: FA Cup finalist, Footballer of the Year and invited to become England manager. But Adamson said ‘no’. Having foreseen Burnley as the ‘Team of the Seventies’, controversy and disillusionment soon saw Adamson turn his back on the game. The story of an enigma, of broken dreams and what might have been.
