London to the comfort and security of his family at his beach side house
in Bournemouth. I found the narrative endearing in its honesty, to 'tell
it like it is' and to highlight one man's extraordinary love of football.
Harry is depicted as a simple man with limited interests, yet in hindsight,
he is extremely successful. He has a close knit family, a passion for his
vocation that extends way beyond the money. I can see why Harry is so popular
amongst so many associated to football. He is gregarious, loves an argument
and banter about football and yet upholds the need to respect and assist his
His anecdotes are endless and it is clear that he would have many more to tell
and people to talk about if space allowed, after many years in football.
He may not be the Football Associations old boys club favourite, but his
willingness to be frank and fair is rare today. He never claims to be wise and
street smart outside of football and comes across as down to earth and humble.
He admits to be being gullible. He was conned for years by a 'jockey'. He is
irresponsible with his medication, dependent on his wife, sentimental towards
his family and unpleasantly moody after football matches. He is also human for
a private temper tantrum, destroying plates of sandwiches (once) when his team
let themselves down.
There are times in the book when the reader could be forgiven for thinking that Harry
is using the book to put his side of the story as an antidote for criticism, back
stabbing, prejudice, media myths or plain nastiness against him.Read more ›
Funny and a great read and sad about Bobby Moore what a waste of experience.
Great insight in to Football.
Get it you will love it
The stories themselves are wonderfully told as Harry talks you through his playing career all the way up to his relegation with QPR at the end of the 2012/13 season. Honest and open i enjoyed these passages of the book a great deal and would strongly recommend them to all football fans.
As a man i know he can divide opinions especially amongst football fans but i would suggest even to the people that are not his biggest fan to maybe give the book a chance as he may change your mind.
Another Fun Trip Down Memory Lane
That said, you can't help but like the man, and he certainly knows and loves the game. It's good to finally hear his side of some of the stuff that's been (mis-)reported in the press about him - the depths to which some journalists will plummet to sell newspapers never ceases to amaze and disappoint me. Even the way he described the FA's shambolic handling of the England manager's appointment in this book was exaggerated and misrepresented almost beyond recognition by the papers - Harry is actually very complimentary about Roy Hodgson, if understandably still a little hurt (but not bitter) about how he himself was treated in the whole farcical process.
I don't think there are many football fans that wouldn't enjoy this book - Harry's a good guy and he loves the game.
