The inspirational story of the man who rescued Brighton & Hove Albion FC from oblivion, a 15 year struggle that saw the homeless club battling for survival until the triumphant opening of their brand new Amex Stadium in August 2012.
The inside story of a saga that captured the hearts and minds of football supporters up and down the country, Mad Man explains how the advertising executive and lifelong Albion fan, Dick Knight, took over the club after its ground had been sold to property developers, rescued it from immediate extinction and then began the long and tortuous battle to find a new home.
Told with immense humour and packed with hilarious anecdotes, Mad Man is a football feelgood story from the heart and soul of the game.
