5.0 out of 5 stars INFORMATIVE, FASCINATING, 12 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Gaffer: The Trials and Tribulations of a Football Manager (Kindle Edition)
Reading the other reviews here it is obvious that Neil Warnock is marmite - the manager you love to hate when his team plays yours but conversely somebody you know will get your own team organised, structured and winning games if he is in charge of your own club. The football might well be limited and fairly unsophisticated but he gets the most out of what he has and his teams aren't half organised.

More importantly he has been a manager for over 30 years so he has been at the forefont of so many changes in how the game is played, how footballers' attitudes have changed and how the manager's job has evolved.

Yes of course this book is opinionated and yes, there is generally another scapegoat when things go wrong but this book provides a wonderfully evocative and thorough insight into the trials and tribulations of how a manager has to cope with the modern day footballer and his temperament as well as all the outside influences.

Yes, just like Simon Jordan's book you need to take some things with a pinch of salt but the book is well put together, has captured NW's voice perfectly and is never less than fascinating.
