4.0 out of 5 stars A great read for ALL football fans, 27 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Roy Keane: Captain Fantastic (Hardcover)
Whilst the obvious readership for this book would be Manchester United fans -- don't be put off if you are not among the loyal legions. As a Brighton supporter -- this seemed a strange birthday present and i was tempted to pass it on to a friend.However , once i started reading i soon became hooked. This is no ordinary sports biography and gives a real insight in to the life ( an interesting life at that ) of one of the games biggest stars. Forest and United fans will obviously gain the greatest interest from this book -- but it is also full of revealing information about who actually runs the game -- from the money men to the greatest tacticians of the game. If there was one criticism it would be that there is possibly too much about his early career / life -- although the quotes from family and friends perhaps go some way to explaining the nature of Keane's aggression on the pitch. Supporters of any team will find this book hugely entertaining -- giving an insight in to the game which i have only come across before in Gary Nelson's fantastic Left Foot Forward and Left Foot In The Grave.
