Football Gentry: The Cobbold Brothers


Write The First Customer Review

Nephews of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, John Cavendish Cobbold and Patrick Mark Cobbold were both chairman of Ipswich Town FC during the club's most successful and high-profile years. Both Old Etonians and heavy drinkers, this account of their time in charge of the club and their lives outside football is full of entertaining anecdotes. The brothers were known for their practical jokes and worked closely with the two greatest Ipswich and England managers of all time, Ramsay and Robson.
