Description

Derek Dougan was no ordinary footballer. Here is the definitive account of the flamboyant goalscorer, a contradictory icon with a unique place in the evolution of modern British football. As chairman of the PFA, he fought for freedom of contract; as a club executive he introduced shirt sponsorship; and ‘The Doog’ saved Wolves from extinction.
