The World Crisis 1911-1918 (Penguin Classics) by Winston Churchill
I very strongly recommend this book. Not only was Churchill a great man and an outstanding war leader, he was a truly brilliant writer too!
Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the Worl&hellip by Graham Hunter
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Well done to Graham Hunter for explaining how Barca is so much more than the first team. There's the Catalan history, a massive youth set-up, hordes of ex-players involved, 140,000 members and everything the club stands for in terms sportsmanship and attractive football!
Taking le Tiss by Matt Le Tissier
Taking le Tiss by Matt Le Tissier
This is not an illuminating book! Matt Le Tissier was a great player but he old have been even better. Like so many English players making as a professional seems to have been enough for him. He talks about wanting to play more for England but he didn't seem to link that ambition with any real application. Of course he had more talent in his big toe than many footballers but that was enough for him and he should not have been surprised that this exasperated a lot managers and coaches. The managers he seemed to like most were the ones who just let him get on with playing football and training as he pleased.
