What's It All About Ralphie?
My Story
Ralph Milne with Gary Robertson

5" x 7 3/4" • 236 pages • color photo section
ISBN 9781845022693 • paperback • $13.00

Ralph Milne was born in Dundee and lived out many a young footballer's dream. On leaving school he signed for Dundee United and gradually forced his way into a team full of great players. With electrifying pace and exceptional talent he quickly established himself as a fans' favorite, producing some dazzling performances at home and on the highest of European stages. He was part of the legendary team which defied all the odds to win the Scottish Premier Division in 1983.

However, behind the scenes his volatile relationship with manager Jim McLean culminated in him leaving for Charlton. After unhappy spells there and at Bristol City he made a dream move to Alex Ferguson's Man United. Ralph struggled to produce his stunning performances of old and retired a few years later. Many believe he could and should have done so much more but a personal battle with alcohol probably decided otherwise. In the eyes of Dundee United fans he will always be a legend and was inducted into the club's Hall Of Fame earlier this year. This is his remarkable story.

Gary Robertson began writing in 2007 after working in factories for most of his adult life. He has performed as a poet on stages across Scotland and on national radio. He is a keep-fit fanatic and won the original BBC 2 reality TV programme "SAS - Are You Tough Enough?"

Gary Robertson is also the author of Pure Dundee, a book of poetry, and the non-fiction Gangs Of Dundee. His first play will be staged in Dundee in September 2009. Gary is very happily married to Sue and they have two children, Cailean and Eilidh.
