By Mr. G. Bridgeman TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 25 Sept. 2006
Format: Hardcover
I read the book from cover to cover the first day I got it. I loved it. Shaun Goater is a role model not just on the football field but to all those budding Bermudian footballers who aspire to be the next Shaun Goater or Clyde Best.

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!!!

Just finished the book this second. Took me since wednesday night to finish it (now Friday night) and i literally couldnt put it down, every page i turned i read with enthusiasm, and i wanted to know everything about the man.

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!

A good read and great value for money. One of those books you should have read even if it isnt startling or the most memorable. I was a fan of the "goat" as a player and it is good to see his future plans and also the amount he is giving back to his homeland. You do feel a sense of liking for the man and feel he is very genuine and honest. One of the few books i have read where i would say the subject is a true gentleman. Worth the money to any football fan.
