Signed hard-back book by Liverpool Supersub, David Fairclough
“A brilliant but provocative autobiography, entitled Supersub. The title, however, does not fully reflect the fluctuations of a career that does not sit entirely comfortably with one of Anfield’s favourite sons.” —Daily Mail
“Engaging and endearing… There are plenty more revealing and entertaining tales in Supersub – it couldn’t really have been called anything else, could it? – in an autobiography which is certainly not sub-standard.” —Liverpool Echo
“Eloquently ghosted by Mark Platt, Fairclough’s memoirs are thoughtful and intelligent. His exclusion from the starting eleven clearly still rankles, but he retains immense respect for Paisley while providing an interesting perspective on his team-mates.” —The Set Pieces
“A candid and often poignant autobiography.” —Sunday Echo
About the Author
David Fairclough was born in Liverpool in January 1957 and joined his boyhood club as a schoolboy striker. He exploded onto the scene as a 19 year old, his goals helping propel Liverpool to a League and UEFA Cup double – the first silverware of an extraordinary trophy-laden haul over a seven-year first team Anfield career. Despite many crucial goals, a guaranteed starting place was often elusive and he became universally known as ‘Supersub’. Fairclough later played in Canada, Switzerland and Belgium as well as spells with Norwich City, Oldham Athletic, Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic. Now a respected football analyst, Fairclough is a familiar face on LFCTV and remains a revered Liverpool legend. Mark Platt is the author of eight previous books on Liverpool and a producer for LFCTV.
