Overview

In Big Chiv (the affectionate nickname he earnt from the Spurs fans who idolised him), Chivers tells the story of a life driven by his abiding passion, the need to score goals. For Southampton as a teenage striking sensation, for Spurs, for England and later for Servette in Switzerland, Norwich, Brighton and Vard FC in Norway. It is a candid and revealing insight into the life of a footballer in a golden era of the game, and inside the mind of one of football's great strikers. More than that, it is a fascinating journey back in time that re-opens the dressing room door on the great Spurs team of the 1970s, the wonderful characters and their exploits on and off the pitch. A key theme of the Big Chiv is a fascinating examination of Chivers's turbulent relationship with legendary Tottenham manager Bill Nicholson. Immensely powerful yet somehow graceful at he same time with immaculate touch and control, Martin Chivers was a magnificent footballer and this - his long-awaited autobiography - is a book to match.
