Simon Garner is football's archetypal cult hero. A drinker and a heavy smoker with a reputation for preferring a bacon butty and a lie-in to training, he liked nothing better than to talk football with Blackburn Rovers fans over a pint (apart from sometimes winding up Burnley fans). On the pitch, he was a gifted striker who became Rovers' all-time top goalscorer, playing under legendary managers Howard Kendall, Jim Smith and Kenny Dalglish. Simon went on to play for Ossie Ardiles at West Bromwich Albion and Martin O'Neill at Wycombe Wanderers, where he also became a popular figure among the fans. This new edition details how Simon managed to wangle a second testimonial and includes a handful of anecdotes that have not appeared in print before.
