3.0 out of 5 stars A Pat on the back., 13 Mar 2007

This review is from: In Ma Head, Son!: Footballer's Mind Revealed (Hardcover)
This book was written as a dialogue between footballer Pat Nevin and leading psychologist George Sik as they try to get inside a footballers mind.

I like to read good footballing autobiographies,especially those that spill the beans,tell tales about other players,incidents out on the training pitch,that sort of thing,but nothing of the sort here although i should have known that Pat Nevin was above all that.

This was written largely during the 1996-97 season when Pat was still a Scottish International,coming to the end of his Tranmere Rover's playing contract and when he came within hours of leading his players out on strike as Chairman of the P.F.A.

All aspects of a footballer's life from injuries,contract negotiations,loss of form,relationships with fellow players and managers, and much more is covered here,and whilst not as dazzling as one of Pat's displays out on the pitch,it aint a bad read from one of my favourite players of all time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two bright people talking, 20 Oct 2009

This review is from: In Ma Head, Son!: Footballer's Mind Revealed (Hardcover)
Interesting and ambitious idea to effectively transcribe the conversations of a psychologist and a footballer throughout one season but I think it might have worked better as an Audio tape/CD.
I got no sense of emotional involvement through the written word although it is clear that Mr Nevin is one of a rare breed being a highly intelligent and thoughtful footballer.
I found it best to read this book in small bites over a long period of time much as the sessions were also scheduled during the season. I defy anyone to read it in a matter of days as it did not prove insightful and ended up for me at least as just a little too dull.
