Synopsis

From the Cowshed to the Kop My Autobiography by Peter Cormack, Brian Weddell, Kevin Keegan, Alex Ferguson

In a playing career spanning nearly two decades, Peter Cormack became a real fans' favourite both at Hibernian FC and with the mighty Liverpool team of the 1970s. Snatched from under the noses of local rivals Hearts, Peter Cormack soon established himself as a skilful and immensely talented midfielder in an excellent Hibs side and went on to score 75 goals in 182 appearances including in the legendary game against Napoli when Hibs beat the Italian giants 5-0 at Easter Road to overturn a seemingly impossible 4-1 deficit. In 1970, he moved to Nottingham Forest, partly as a result of receiving a 12-match ban for two consecutive red cards and realizing it was finally time to move on. After Forest were relegated, Peter Cormack was signed for Liverpool by the legendary Bill Shankly and joined Reds heroes Kevin Keegan, Tommy Smith and Emlyn Hughes in a team that would later go on to conquer the footballing world. In Cormack's time, however, Liverpool were warming up for European Cup glory with a League Championship, a UEFA Cup double and an FA Cup victory. After a serious injury, Ray Kennedy took over his role in the team and Cormack's time at Liverpool came to an abrupt end. Following a stint at Bristol City and a short time playing alongside George Best back at Hibs, Cormack went into football management, with mixed fortunes, but his lasting achievements in the game both north and south of the border are told with honesty and humour along with some rare insights into some of the greats of the game.
