Sir Trevor Brooking Autographs & Memorabilia Memorabilia

Football in the 1970s was a rough and tumble affair, with working class heroes who were either skilled but flawed playboys or tough tackling enforcers.

And then there was West Ham and England's Trevor Brooking.

Brooking brought an effortless, under-stated elegance to the game. A shrewd reader of he game who could unlock a defence with a perfectly weighted pass or blast in a goal in the peculiarly definitive way that only a left-footer can manage, he was one of the greatest English midfielders of his generation.

In 600+ appearances for his beloved West Ham, he was booked just the once. He scored goals rather more regularly – exactly 88 times more regularly for the Hammers in the league.

For England, he formed a telepathic understanding with Kevin Keegan and the one thing missing from his CV was a proper international stage to showcase his talents as by the time England managed to qualify for the World Cup in his playing lifetime – in Spain in 1982 – Brooking was recovering from injury and managed only minutes on the pitch.

But a consolation was, by then, already in place as Brooking had scored the winning goal in the 1980 FA Cup final against Arsenal – the second time Sir Trevor and the Hammers had enjoyed a day of Wembley glory in his brilliant career.
