Product Description

Amazon Review

My guiding light has been a piece of advice I once received from the late Lord Ted Willis, prolific writer, creator of Dixon of Dock Green and a wonderful friend: "Never use a one pound word when a sixpenny one will do", he said. For a football commentator like me, that has never been a problem. I've made a good living out of sixpenny words.
One of the most recognisable sounds in sport, Brian Moore--the Voice of Football--looks back at more than 30 years in television and radio and on what is has meant to him to share a nation's sporting passions.

Moore reveals the untold stories behind his public career with humour and humility, casting an affectionate but critical eye on colleagues such as Jimmy Hill and Ron Atkinson, and sporting greats as diverse as Niki Lauda and Maradona.

His even-handed appreciation of the mercurial genius of Brian Clough--a colleague and friend of 30 years--is typical of the fan who never lost his critical sense while enjoying the company of his heroes.

Retirement from television commentary at the end of the 1998 World Cup finals came hard on the heels of arguably his greatest ever performance. The record 27 million people who experienced the England-Argentina match with him enjoyed vintage Moore--spare, elegant and with a sense of occasion which never degenerated into bombast. All qualities he has brought to these recollections of a life at the big match. --Alex Hankin

Book Description

Format: Hardcover
I had great difficulty obtaining this book from the high street bookshops. In fact the only place I could find it was Amazon.co.uk.
Brian Moore, for me has always been the master. In the seventies I grew up with him in my life, every Sunday on The Big Match. He is part of the soundtrack of my life and I was pleased to read about his life and to discover that he was as good and nice as he appeared in his TV life. He loved his parents and thought very highly of them. He was happily married for many years until his death. The book also gives the reader some great stories and includes tributes to such people as George Best and Brian Clough.
If you love football, if you grew up during the 70's and 80's then you MUST love Brian Moore and then this book will be for you. Read it and you'll be 'over the moon, Brian'!

I grew up with watching Brian Moore on Sunday afternoons presenting the Big Match - well before live matches became the norm.
To be able to read this autobiography was fantastic and gave a great insight into his background, enjoyable moments and fears for the game and little excerpts about his co-commentators.
A great read about one of the best sports commentators of our time.
