Football fan extraordinaire and friend of the stars!
Starring: Bobby Moore, Jimmy Greaves, Geoff Hurst, Terry Venables, Muhammad Ali, Frank Sinatra and many, many more...
Superfan is a collection of wonderful anecdotes and stories from one of football’s – and England's – great characters.
Morris Keston was once just a regular football fan, but then he started befriending the Spurs players (sometimes by following them out of the ground and sitting next to them on the bus!). By the time the 1966 World Cup came around Bobby Moore and Jimmy Greaves were popping round for tea between training sessions, and when Spurs reached numerous cup finals in the seventies and eighties the players from both teams would flock to his wild after-match party instead of the club’s official dos.
Beyond football he became friends with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Muhammad Ali. He regularly travelled to Vegas in Sinatra's private jet and still goes into a cold sweat when recalling the time Stirling Moss gave him a lift and reversed down a narrow street at 90mph.
He had a whole chapter devoted to him in Hunter Davies’s classic sports tome
The Glory Game, but now the amazing adventures of Morris Keston at last have a book of their own.
The Superfan ebook is now available for the Kindle and Kindle iPhone App. Please go to Amazon to download a free sample or the whole book.
There'll never be another football supporter like Morris Keston.
Terry Venables, October 2009
Morris was like our 12th man. No matter where and when we played he was there. He was always there to help and advise if a player ever got into bother; and he knew more about what was going on at the club than any of us. But he never told tales out of school. He knew when to keep stum, and he won the trust of everybody at the club. Yes, a Superfan!
Jimmy Greaves, April 2010
He's by far the greatest fan the Spurs have ever seen!
McNamara's Band, May 2010
England Football Online
"Its a brilliant read. It's what every fan wants to be. And could be. Told from a time when Football players were accessible. From when wages were identical, before locked gates, super cars and security camera's became the norm."
"I thoroughly recommend this book by Morris, who truly is a SUPER fan."
Who Killed Ruel Fox
"All killer, not an ounce of filler."
Tottenham On My Mind
"It’s a tale of a bygone, arguably better era, where you could turn up on the turnstile and get in, where players were open and willing to chat rather than be surrounded by a forcefield of PR and agents, where players understood that they and the fans are one and the same, not a different class."
Rob Shepherd, News of the World
"Keston reveals authentic tales of (Bobby) Moore, a bloke call Muhammad Ali and a certain singer by the name of Frank Sinatra. Reading it reminds me of reading David Niven's biography, The Moon's A Balloon."
