There were six of them - three Katherines, two Annes, and a Jane. One of them was the King's wife for twenty-four years, another for only a year and a half. One died, two were divorced, and two were beheaded. It was a dangerous, uncertain life.

Stoke City legend Terry Conroy lifts the lid on how the great Potters side of the early 70s took on the giants of the day in epic encounters, and often won. How they almost won the league, and proved worthy opponents of Europe's finest; and how the fans' favourite ginger winger scored one and created the other goal in Stoke's first major trophy win at Wembley. Terry's tales take in Hudson, Greenhoff and Banks, Best, Charlton and Redknapp. He talks about his rollercoaster international career with the Republic of Ireland, both as player and as assistant - and also reveals the cost of playing with cortisone injections, the impact of a drinking culture on the club's potential success, and how he won his own personal battles. A fabulous story of a life lived to the full - a delight for all Stoke City fans, lovers of 1970s culture and football supporters in general.
