'After Extra Time' is the 'director's cut' version of the novel 'Dirty Leeds' by Robert Endeacott. The new book goes into a lot more detail about Don Revie and the main character Jimmy O'Rourke.
Jimmy O'Rourke is a lad growing up in the grimy, industrial city of Leeds in the early 1960s. He's football mad even though his favourite team, Leeds United, are languishing near the bottom of the Second Division.
But all of that will change as a certain Mr Don Revie takes charge of team affairs. A meteoric rise begins, bringing years of both glory and anguish, while soccer starlet Jimmy aspires to be an integral part of that rise.
After Extra Time contains nearly 50,000 more words than the first version, expanding on various tales and myths featured in the original story, such as Don Revie's superstitiousness, how 'dirty Leeds' came about, plus an insight into the allegations and accusations aimed at the club.
This version features a more detailed and intimate look at Jimmy O'Rourke's life.About the Author
