A GEORDIE BHOY
Foreword by Martin O’Neill
From humble beginnings playing at the famous Wallsend Boys Club and potential paralysis to scoring the winning goal at Celtic Park against the mighty Barcelona, playing in the Champions League and achieving full international honours.
A Geordie Bhoy is the exclusive story of a true Glasgow Celtic and Bolton Wanderers icon.
Alan Thompson was a tenacious, hot headed, big game contender on the pitch, who was a major player with great skill, technique, and fine play in the Martin O’Neill era. He wore his heart on his sleeve and his style of play would win over the adoring crowds of whichever club he was at.
Tommo was as capable of making the front pages for scandal as he was the back pages for scoring a ‘Worldie’ with that magic wand of a left foot.
For the first time ever, Tommo reveals all about the highs of his illustrious career and the lows of his private struggle with life after football and bankruptcy.
In Alan’s own words, “From Geordie Bhoy to Sweet F**k All”
