Book Description

28 April 1994
This autobiography of the footballer Paul McGrath chronicles his upbringing in Ireland in foster homes and orphanages, his early playing career with Pease Rovers, Dalkey United and St Patrick's Athletic, and his journey across the Irish Sea to Manchester United. The bright lights of Manchester caused their own problems - and thus began a battle with the bottle that has plagued his life. His soccer success at Old Trafford was mixed with trouble too - in the shape of knee injuries and public disagreements with manager Alec Ferguson. The book goes on to cover his playing career as an Ireland international and his move to Aston Villa, where he was voted the PFA's Player of the Year.

As an Aston Villa fan the name Paul Mcgrath is legendary, and so is the book, this is truly a great book about a great football player, if you havent already read this, i suggest you do, because this is one of the best football biographies ever written.
4.0 out of 5 stars against the odds story that deserves to be read 24 Mar 1999

this is more than a football biography - the story is moving and deserves to be made into a movie - directors take note
