If any of the Scottish FA are reading this, give Lou the Job.
on 27 November 2009
I purchased this book as a Swindon Town fan and wanted to know the truth behind the scandal that Swindon went through, when Lou Macari was manager of the club.
I also wanted to under stand why one of the best British football managers is not managing a high profile club.
The book covers Lou's time with Manchester United and Celtic and gives an insight to how they were managed and also how Lou learnt the trade.
I enjoyed the book, and in some daft way it has given me closer (using Katie price's word) to the Swindon Town affair. I believe the club were used as a warning to other clubs and paid a heavy price as did Lou Macari.
The book tells a sad or unfortunate life which should have been a riches tale of not only money but a management legacy that should be up there with the top British managers, why Scotland haven't come knocking beats me, I would have him installed as a Swindon manager any day of the week.
The book touches the part in Lou's life when he lost his son, It made my heart weep, I have a son of 5 who I love so much and to loose him would break me, and you can tell that it broke a very decent man in Lou Macari.
I thank Lou Macari for the good days he brought to Swindon and If any of the Scottish FA are reading this, give Lou the Job.
