Saints and Sinners (Hardback)

Graham Hiley


From flying head-butts and flying tackles, to flying ashtrays and flying linesmen, Saints and Sinners is a frightening run-down of some of the hardest players ever to pull on a Southampton shirt - and their on- and off-field exploits which gave them such notoriety. During more than twenty years of covering the club's fortunes, author Graham Hiley has amassed a wealth of anecdotes from some of the toughest men to represent Saints; including the likes of midfield enforcer Jimmy Case, uncompromising defender Neil Ruddock, serial red-card offender Francis Benali, Mark 'Psycho' Dennis...and many more. Off the field, they are some of the nicest guys you could wish to meet. But once they crossed that white line, even the toughest of opponents would want to steer well clear. From the side dubbed 'Alehouse brawlers' by the legendary Bill Shankly through to club legend Benali and the stories behind his 11 red cards, Saints and Sinners is a fascinating and often funny look at some of the club's greatest characters.
