Overview

"I'm with the Cosmos" was the phrase New York Cosmos players used to get a table reserved at the city's best restaurants or skip the line at Studio 54. And it was one Steve Hunt became used to trotting out, after he was transferred from Aston Villa to New York Cosmos at the tender age of 20, having played just seven times for the first team at Villa. He walked straight into a world of celebrity and a team of superstars including two of the world's finest players, Pelé and Franz Beckenbauer. This is Steve's story of those heady days in New York - but also a stellar career back in England during the early 1980s. Returning to the West Midlands, Steve played for Coventry City, West Bromwich Albion, and returned to his beloved Aston Villa for a second spell - and at the age of 28, he won the first of two England caps under Bobby Robson, realizing an ambition held since early childhood. This is Steve's story, and in it, he writes frankly about his football career, as well as his life outside the game.

Author Biography

Ian is a Birmingham City supporter and Steve - a lifelong Aston Villa fan - has long since forgiven him.
