Includes a chapter on Walsall (titled “Dicky Dosh”). Deeney started on £120 a week. Says Ant Gerard was a joker who locked him in a room with a snake. Jimmy Mullen used to call Deeney ‘Ned’ for reasons unknown.
Deeney says he was sold to Watford for 350k, but with a 20% sell on. News to me. Leicester Offered £27m, but Watford wanted £30m. Walsall would have got £6m. Strange that Watford didn’t sell.
Leicester manager at the time (Ranieri) now manager of Watford.
