Each chapter contains an informed and humourous analysis of a particular aspect of a footballer and Okwonga's ability to draw on so many aspects of life and intertwine them with footballing history to reason his thinking left me hoping he writes another. He took me back to so many great footballing moments and taught me so many more. One on managers would be magnificent. Thoroughly recommend. Enjoy.
