Never Had It So Good


Burnley's league title victory of 1960 remains one of the most remarkable feats in the history of English football, the club the smallest ever to win its premier title. Despite spending far less than other champions and drawing more modest crowds, Burnley beat the likes of Manchester United, Spurs and Wolves by playing exciting, fluid, continental-style football that won many admirers. 'I wanted to applaud their artistry,' Jimmy Greaves commented. 'In an era when quite a few teams believed in the big boot, they were a league of gentlemen.' Former player Brian Miller described how grounded the team were at the time: 'Several of us worked at Bank Hall pit all day and then played First Division football. Spurs' players didn't do that.' Never Had It So Good reveals how Burnley's amazing title triumph was achieved - and how very different life was for a footballer in those bygone days.
