Win A Signed Copy Of Venables' Autobiography!

9 June 2014


Having played and managed both Crystal Palace and England during his 40-plus years in the game, Terry Venables' autobiography is sure to be a must-read for all Eagles fans this summer.

Enjoying a short playing career with Palace before moving into a coaching capacity, Venables would become manager in 1976 and set about creating the "Team of the Eighties" which won two promotions in three years, reaching the top-flight in 1980.

After leaving for Queens Park Rangers later that year, spells at Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur followed before the national team came calling in 1994, and Venables famously guided the Three Lions to the semi-finals of Euro 96 to restore some pride in the English game.

He would return to Palace for a short time in 1998, and both stints with the Eagles are covered in the book as well all his other footballing memories.

We have signed copies of the book to give away to three lucky fans, and you can get your hands on one by simply emailing communications@cpfc.co.uk with the answer to this question:

As well as England, which other national team at this summer's World Cup has Venables managed?
