He is responsible for one of the greatest photographs in English football history, and now The Robin Friday Story is set to be made into a film.
Based on the eponymous book written by former Oasis bass player Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan and Paolo Hewitt, Friday was a Reading and Cardiff City striker in the 70s whose boozing, smoking, womanising and drug-taking contributed to his tragically young death at the age of 38.
Despite his short life, the film should make for an entertaining biography of one of English football's most memorable mavericks. Friday was also immortalised on the Super Furry Animals' album sleeve The Man Don't Give A F**k.
Although football has traditionally struggled on the big screen, the relative success of 2009's The Damned United and the 2006 documentary Once in a Lifetime suggests the 70s appears to be an auspicious era for depicting the beautiful game on film.
