4.0 out of 5 stars Paranoia of football management! 18 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I just finished with his Liverpool days and felt I needed to review now. As a Liverpool fan, I was very disturbed to read his views about the Liverpool board. Tommy Smith loses all my respect too and revelations on Phil Thompson are no surprise. I felt for Souness as he described his operation experiences and beyond, but all the time, I felt that his excuses for his failures as manager at Liverpool were those of a paranoid man. At Rangers, he was a target of hate, but was given more than most mangers to spend at will at building an average team that never did well in Europe...he never did explain that. But at Liverpool, he was an idol who threw away all the respect that he earned as a player by making many poor buys. He never explains his tactics, his training regime and the changes at Anfield, and so he still leaves himself open to criticism. Blaming everyone around him is poor management, and maybe that is what we really learn about him. He was simply a man that did not know how to manage players never mind a club that demanded success every week. The book is full of excuses and Souness does not realize that he is the reason for his own problems.

graeme souness tells all in this no hold bars autobiography.starting with his time in glasgow and the pressure to be the best in scotland.he goes on to admit his own faults at liverpool with only a f.a.cup to his name.the most interesting part is the way he describes the passion of the turkish fans while managing galatasaray.a must for all football fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but could have been more informative. 5 April 2000
Format:Hardcover
Graeme Souness has tried to be honest with his appraisal of his managerial career. But, it left the reader wanting more information particularly as to what happened at Liverpool and Southampton. Graeme,is a determined man and this comes through in his book. He was quite frank about his heart problems and how he encountered his initial problems at Rangers. I feel Rangers are benefitting from his managerial approach and style to this day. He admits that he could have been less hasty in his decisions at Liverpool , but the club have benefitted with the emergence of Redknapp and Fowler.

Always seemed to be someone else fault, never seemed to take responsibility for results (apart from Rangers where he was successful), very disappointing as I thought he was a great player.

3.0 out of 5 stars Champaigne Charlie 23 Sep 2007
Format:Hardcover
Graeme Souness the management years covers his spell as player manager at Rangers,his troubled spell as boss at Liverpool and also his time spent at Galatasaray,Southampton,his six games in charge at Torino and finaly Benfica.
When reading this book you get the impression it was written in the main to explain his reasons why he wasn't a success as manager of Liverpool and to appologise for selling his story about his heart problems to The Sun,a newspaper dispised on Merseyside,an act unforgiven by the same Liverpool supporters whom idolised his during his time there as a player.
If i am honest,i was expecting Souness to dish the dirt a little more than he does but he does fight back against Phil Thompson and Tommy Smith,former team mates whom publicaly slated him both behind his back and in the press,and he admits that he didn't get the backing of the more senior pros at Anfield,which obviously dissapointed him.
The book is filled with other chapters of less interest like a chapter on his best mate Phil Boersma,Alex Ferguson,Glassgow and the press.
Still a decent read all the same but doesn't quite possess the same bite as one of his famous tackles.
