  Footballers' Wives 28 October 2004  
The money and the glamour; how their lives changed over seventy years

Pat LaBone was the Victoria Beckham of her day, married to one of the country's top footballers.

But life for Pat life was utterly different than it is for a footballers wife today. 

Jenni talks to Pat and Becky Tallentire who's just published a book about the footballers' wife - from the 30's through to the 60's.  

Jenni is also joined by Victoria McManaman - wife to Steve, formerly with Real Madrid and now with Manchester City. Training to be a barrister, Victoria believes the modern day footballer's wife has an unfair reputation as an air head.
