The biography of controversial Burnley chairman Bob Lord, the self-made butcher who ruled the club from 1955 to 1981. A blunt, opinionated leader, football's own 'Khrushchev' upset many with his views; but he had the idea of running a club on businesslike lines, and oversaw a production line of top players then sold on to sustain his vision.
