About this title


Autobiography of the Arsenal and Derby County footballer. 8vo. 239pp. Dust-wrapper, with small tear to lower spine - otherwise very good. Signed nicely by George to title-page.


Many young lads have dreams of scoring the winner for their favourite team in the F.A Cup Final at Wembley. Charlie's is the story of a lad who's dreams came true. Frederick Charles George was born on the 10th of October 1950 in Islington, London. He was brought up only a mile or so from his beloved Arsenal, the football club he adored and was later to become synonymous with. When he wasn't playing football he be found standing on the terraces of The North Bank. It wasn't long before he was "spotted" by Arsenal and signed as a schoolboy for the Gunners. Charlie made his full first team debut at the age of eighteen. After breaking his ankle in the opening game of the 1970-71 season, he went on to score 10 goals that season, none more memorable than the winning goal in the F.A Cup Final against Liverpool, securing "The Double" a mere five days after winning the Championship at White Hart Lane. From there on in Charlie became not just an Arsenal Legend, but an icon of the seventies, taking over the mantle from George Best, inspiring many a haircut and pop record. There was even a cafe in Mountgrove Road, N5 named "The Charlie George Cafe".

Yet as Charlie's fame grew, so did his reputation - a reputation as a 'Cockney Rebel', and one who continually clashed with various managers and figures of authority, with whom he had also had his run-ins since schooldays He was the type of player who left an impression on everybody who watched him play. A class player with both power and grace, he had a temperamental and stubborn side to his personality, worthy of many a tabloid headline. Charlie was a rough diamond - and is a huge part of Arsenal and footballing history.
