3.0 out of 5 stars Lop-sided 28 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since Wendy Owen was player in the England Women's football team from the very start in the 1970s, I was hoping for plenty of insight and comment about what it was like playing for the national team as it struggled to survive its infancy. Instead, this book is a mundane run through Owen's CV: I played in this team, then I got this job, then I coached this team, then I coached this team... There is little detail about the England team, a real missed opportunity. In fact, Owen's five-year England career is given as much space as a six-week summer coaching job in the USA, or the rundown on the list of minor coaching jobs she has had since retirement. Not a riveting read.
