One of the most colourful and controversial of all England managers, Graham Taylor has many stories to share of his days in charge of the international team, when his sayings such as ‘do I not like that’ and ‘do I not like orange’ became national catchphrases.
Graham was the son of a sportswriter, and knows what it takes to make a headline and learned long ago how to turn criticism into humour. It was after a playing career with and Grimsby Town and Lincoln City was cut short by injury that he started to establish himself as an outstanding young manager, first with Lincoln and then Watford.
It was while at Aston Villa that he landed the England job in succession to Bobby Robson, and he had an adventurous time that has given him the foundation to many amusing and amazing tales.
He later returned to club management with Wolves and then back at Aston Villa before a spell as chairman of Watford, where he remains honorary life president.
A regular pundit with the BBC Radio Five Live team, Graham is always worth listening to about his experiences in club and international football. Will you not like that!
