This is one of the most astonishing football stories. How exactly did a 1970s lower division footballer come to mean more and reach out internationally decades after his premature death? WSC regular Roger Titford followed Robin Friday’s career from the terraces as one of the greatest footballers he adored rather than as “the greatest footballer you never saw”. Just as closely he has tracked how the legend of this archetype bad-boy maverick has evolved in the hands of a media world determined to mould it their way.

Published originally in digital form only The Legend of Robin Friday this 64 page photo-essay brings the story right up to date. The comprehensive gallery of images reveals what Robin was really like for Reading and Cardiff fans who watched him or just heard about the stories, legends, myths and falsehoods.
