Greaves is Scoring Again!,
This review is from: Greavsie: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is quite simply the best football book I've ever read. Given that Jimmy Greaves was Tottenham's best ever goalscorer and I am a second generation Arsenal fan, that's praise indeed! If, like me, you grew up with Saint and Greavsie on a Saturday morning, you'll quickly recognise Jimmy's humour and frankness.
This is not just a book about career statistics or overcoming self-inflicted addictions. Jimmy also looks at the social history involved in football, he examines how the philosophy of football has changed, and he discusses the metamorphasis of the beautiful game from a working class pastime to a multi-million pound industry.
If you're interested in our national sport, read this book.
