Wingin’ It: The Mark Walters Story  
Synopsis:
Wingin' It' is a fascinating and insightful autobiography of a former footballer who beat the bigots to enjoy a lengthy and silverware-laden career. Mark Walters drew inspiration from the way the late Cyrille Regis handled his racist detractors, and went on to play for Aston Villa, Glasgow Rangers, Liverpool and England. While a starry-eyed kid in Birmingham, he somehow escaped the clutches of evil paedophile Ted Langford, although his mate wasn't so fortunate. He became an idol of the Villa Park terraces but his racist-busting move to Scotland was almost halted by a bloodthirsty, banana-baiting mob – who also pelted him with pig's feet – but he stood firm and became one of England's greatest, and most popular, exports. His famed double-shuffle thrilled fans the length and breadth of the country, and after a third successive league title, a £1.25 million move to Liverpool reunited him with Graeme Souness. He rewrote the record books at Anfield but would ultimately call his decision to head south 'the biggest mistake of his career!
