Overview

True Storey is the explosive autobiography of notorious 1970s football legend Peter Storey, dubbed the "bastard's bastard," who had a reputation for ultra-violence on the pitch and a capacity to find even greater trouble off it—a fact born out by a string of criminal convictions and jail sentences over the years. A key member of Arsenal's brilliant Double-winning team of 1970-71, Storey was a confirmed ladies' man who loved a drink. In the mid '70s, his pub in Islington became a magnet for north London's biggest villains, and he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Great Train Robber Tommy Wisbey and Howard "Mr. Nice" Marks. Storey talks candidly about the crimes he committed and the numerous jail sentences that followed. He reveals the truth behind his bitter feud with George Best and relays an astonishing account of how Bertie Mee tried to make him feign injury and miss the 1971 FA Cup final against Bill Shankly's Liverpool side because the manager wanted Eddie Kelly to start instead. Today, Peter is a totally transformed and highly elusive character. It is only now that he feels the circumstances are right to set the record straight and tell his side of a remarkable True Storey.
