Flawed Genius: Scottish Football’s Self Destructive Mavericks
A great idea for a book this by Stephen McGowan, it’s been asking to be written for years if you ask me and there is plenty to keep the average Hibby happy.
Flawed genius mavericks who played at Hibernian Football Club included George Best, Andy Goram and Chic Charnley who has also just released a book.
There are plenty of other footballer’s stories detailed in the book too including Gazza, Paolo Di Canio and Willie Johnston. No mention in the blurb of Fernando Ricksen’s penchant for industrial fireworks and porn in public places, Justin Fashanu’s penchant for ageing soap stars and public toilets or Phil Stamp’s insanitary living conditions but there must be some mention. Surely.
