Product Description

Everton Extra Time: My Autobiography David Weir Book

David Weir's career is a tale of triumph on the pitch but also of victory over the
assumption that all top-level footballers are finished in their mid-30s. Weir, who turned
41 in May 2011, is the oldest outfield player to represent Rangers since 1945, passing
the mark set by their famous full-back, Jock 'Tiger' Shaw.

In this revealing autobiography, Weir gives an insight into the high of playing in the
1998 World Cup finals for his country to the low of the chaotic 2-2 draw in the Faroes
four years later, which lead to his decision to stop playing for Scotland. For the first
time, he gives his side of the story. How he felt Berti Vogts, Scotland's boss, used him
as a scapegoat.

Many felt Weir's international career would end on that sour note and that his club
career was approaching its conclusion, too. He was 32 and David Moyes, his manager at
Everton, made no secret he was on the lookout for new, younger defenders. Like
thousands of footballers before him, Weir could have just accepted his time was up. He
had a young family and a father who was suffering from Alzheimer's to help care for and
self-doubt gnawed at him. Could he cut it anymore?
Instead, he moved to Rangers in January 2007, making his debut for his childhood
favourites at a mere 36 years and 236 days and has helped them to eight trophies since
and a European final in 2008. Weir's is a story of battling against the odds to keep
playing

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read for all football fans. 18 Jan 2012
By ian e
Size Name:One Size Only
This is one of the best football autobiographies out there. Definitely worth a read - whether you're a Rangers, Scotland, Everton, Hearts, Falkirk fan - or just a football nut that enjoys reading about the life of a top player. Obviously Davie is a legend - and has done amazingly well in his career - even after playing in the US until aged 21. I read as many football biogs/autobiogs as possible, and it's refreshing to have a book written intelligently and with depth - as opposed to something thrown together in the pub (Mr Savage for example :)) He goes into depth about life as a college 'soccer' player in the US, his amazing club and country career after returning to Scotland, and a really good look at what has kept him going until the ripe old age of 41. As i write this, Davie just announced yesterday that he's leaving Rangers and looking to keep playing on for a while longer. Don't be surprised if he pulls it off - and then ends up having a distinguished career in coaching/management afterwards. I've already put a bet on him becoming Scotland's manager one day! Those of us that still crave playing as much as possible - at whatever age and level - will be able to relate to Davie's story. I thought McManaman's book (El Macca) was great, and this is up there with that one for sure. So much better than most books out there. Would be a great gift for younger players looking to start a long career too. Nice one Davie.
