Archie Gemmill's autobiography is the story of a spiky 70s football hero, who rose to captain Scotland, scored one of the greatest ever World Cup goals against Holland in Argentina in 1978 and won the title at Derby and Nottingham Forest under the late Brian Clough. Archie never shied away from a tackle in his twenty-year professional career and he is just as forthright when remembering his bitter clashes with characters such as Jock Stein, Ally MacLeod and Tommy Docherty.
Archibald Gemmill (born 24 March 1947) is a Scottish former footballer. During his career he won the European Cup, three English league titles and captained his national side.
