During careers that saw them play for teams such as Hibernian and St. Mirren in Scotland, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City in England, and Torino in Italy, brothers Joe and Gerry Baker scored more than 500 goals between them. This captivating account describes how it came to be that two of Scotland's greatest ever sportsmen never represented the Scottish national team, tracing Joe's path from Hibs to the English national team--becoming the first man to make his England debut without ever having played in the English league--and Gerry's journey from St. Mirren to the U.S. team. With unprecedented access to the Baker family archives, including contributions from Gerry Baker himself and the late Joe's son Colin, The Fabulous Baker Boys is a unique tale of Scotland's most celebrate sporting siblings and contains exclusive interviews with former players such as Denis Law, Lawrie Reilly, John Robertson, Alex Young, Pat Stanton, Bob Wilson, and George Eastham.
