The Real Bobby Dazzler: The Bobby Thomson Story
This is a no holds barred behind-the-scenes insight into Thomson's public and private life. This is a story of a typical Scottish lad who, from an early age, excelled in every sport and was born a winner.
His football talent shone through at the age of nine, and by the time he was 15 he was spotted by Division One champions Wolverhampton Wonderers, under the legendary manager Stan Cullis.
Thomson was sold to Aston Villa in 1959 where he would quickly make his name in that great Villa side and was an integral part of Mercer's Minors.
After four years at Villa Park, he moved across the city to St Andrew's where he would meet up again with the enigmatic Stan Cullis.
For the second time in his career, Bobby not surprisingly fell out with his manager and his career moved downwards to Stockport County and eventually had a few successful years in the non-League scene.
