A must buy for any football fan of any age, 17 Aug 2011
This is a must buy for any football fan, a real inside from a professional who played in the 1980's, who then progressed to a physio, manager, and ended up the top physio at Everton, having daily contact with the top players. You cannot put this down and it must be a good buy for any football lover as a gift. I would say just buy this and you will get the best insight into how football has changed. The characters in the game, the pranks, the anguish and pain, the transfers and the inside line on what makes professional football work. Players wanting to move, fall outs, new signings, the thrill of the win, the threat of the sack - it is all here. Then this is compared to the game pre SKY, when players and managers got by on what we would call good but normal wages. I can not tell you how much a good decision you would have made if you went and bought this book. I hope there is a second book to come from a top man and a real good honest hardworking guy.
