The book is entertaining and a good read throughout. It follows the life and times of Shaun from his Bermudian roots from the time of the riots in his homeland, through his childhood and teenage years, signing for Manchester United and being released to go through the lower leagues with Rotherham United and Bristol City before reaching the apex of his career with Manchester City. Shaun tells of the lows at Reading and going out on a high by winning the Coca Cola Division One Championship with Southend United last season.
Shaun comes over as a great guy who loves life and Manchester City especially. I am sure if you buy the book you, like Shaun, will have a perpetual smile on your face.
Football and Bermuda has a new ambassador. Feed the Goat!!!
The book is inciteful, it gives the low-down on everything he went through in Bermuda getting over to England, his stays with United, Rotheram, Bristol, Manchester City, Coventry and Southend, all as delightful as the last. He comes across in the book exactly how you would imagine, a kind, caring, down to earth, special man. He clearly loves City, he mentions the Blue's throughout, he clearly loves everything about football, City, England and Manchester, hes humble in his opinions throughout the book and is rather forthright too.
More than anything the book is hilarious in parts, some little quotes are fabulous, little things that he says or thoughts he had are brilliantly funny and had me laughing out loud.
It was exceptionally interesting to read about his home country, and what he did when he was younger over there, right up to what he plans to do in the future.
As i said, i couldnt put it down, literally, i just wanted to read and read and read about the Legend, and is truly what he is in my eyes, a complete, utterly brilliant Legend. If you haven't already bought the book, go get it...now, if youve got it and are reading it you'll know exactly what i mean. Its being lent over to my Dad now who cant wait to delve into it.
What a man the Goat is, complete Legend. Feed the Goat and he will score!

What a brilliant read! I'm not even a fan of any of the teams the Goat has played for, but I found it fascinating finding out about his life and career on and off the pitch. Read morePublished on 11 Oct. 2006 by Hypster
