'John Motson has for many years been the undisputed true voice of English football.' --Sir Bobby Robson
'Motty is, in the words of the old cliché, a legend in his own lifetime. He has brought knowledge of and passion for football direct into the homes of millions - he is a national institution, recognised and loved. He is also a thoroughly decent bloke.' --Tony Blair
'There is no doubting Motty is a footie hero ... this will be an ideal stocking-filler for dads at Christmas.' --News of the World
'Like Cheryl Cole and Lincolnshire sausages, John Motson is a national treasure to be cherished. From his verbal scraps with Brian Clough to the traumatic Hillsborough tragedy, his autobiography reveals the man behind the microphone.' --Sport Magazine
'John Motson is an institution and his commentaries on Match of the Day are part of the fabric of football. The BBC legend has been behind the microphone for 40 years, covering just about every big match going.'
'Bright and breezy ... it reflects on a lifetime watching football matches big and small and of bumping into all the heroes of the game' --Sunday Express
'Motty's knowledge and passion for football are unrivalled as he shares his story for the first time with humour and honesty'
'Filled with a multitude of detail about Motson's background and the sporting times he lived through ... Motson is one of the most intelligent and accomplished commentators in history, a voice that has conveyed the best (and worst, depending on your allegiance) moments in the recent past of the game. His book offers a fascinating look at what goes on behind the scenes of football broadcasting, as well as a trip down memory lane for many supporters. A must-read for any football fan.'
