Who Put the Ball in the Munich Net? : How Bolton Wanderers Joined Europe's Elite Paperback
In the space of 18 years Bolton Wanderers rose from mid-table in the Fourth Division to the UEFA Cup.
With the help of world renowned stars they qualified twice for the competition, drawing with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena before beating Atletico Madrid. Their UEFA Cup adventure was an 18-match journey that started with murder in Bulgaria and ended in controversy in Lisbon.
Along the way there were tales of burning stadiums in Istanbul, escape from armed police in Belgrade, brutality in Spain and Sam Allardyce's encounter with jellyfish, together with the story of Ivan Campo's dog. This book chronicles it all, with a foreword from Kevin Davies and further exclusive contributions from Allardyce, Gary Megson, Phil Gartside, Kevin Nolan, El-Hadji Diouf, Stelios Giannakopoulos, Ricardo Vaz Te, Ali Al Habsi, Gavin McCann, Joey O'Brien, Nicky Hunt, Henrik Pedersen and more.
