Product Description

Review

`Manchester is the Capital of Football, a title that thrills Denis Law, who served the forward lines of United and City with such distinction. He enjoys the edge, the rivalry and particularly the high quality of football flowing from two famous sides... As he talks, Law flicks through his beautiful new book My Life In Football, his eyes lingering on that wonderful photograph of him and Best, stripped to the waist, running hard during pre-season training at the Cliff' --Daily Telegraph

'I AM THE LAW: Every picture tells a story in the life of a footballing legend' --The Scotsman

'Denis Law, aka The King, one of a tiny band of British players to have been crowned European Footballer of the Year, is now in his 70th year, though the image of him in full flow is burnished upon the consciousness of those of us lucky enough to have seen him play' --Birmingham Post

I have waited for this book all my life and the the wait was worth it. It is superb. I always felt that Denis was never given the coverage he deserved but this book makes up for it. Packed with wonderful photos and with comments from Denis alongside, it is a fine and worthy tribute to the greatest player who ever lived.Now, if we could just have a dvd of all the great goals he scored during his career, my life would be complete!

This is a brilliant book about a truly magnificent footballer. Not only is it packed with hundreds of great photographs depicting his life and career, it contains Denis's commentary on the illustrations, which is often hilarious. A combination of the stunning action shots, intimate pictures from his family collection and, all the time, his lovely wry modesty, make this an irresistible package. They called Denis Law 'The King' and this, indeed, is a monarch among books.

So I confess that, as a teenager growing up in the early 70's, I didn't like Denis. But that was entirely because he played for Manchester United, was Scottish, had scored against my Team in an FA Cup Final and regularly scored against England!

The truth is, he was brilliant and we all knew it and, as I grew older, I also came to appreciate the real character of the man.

This is a wonderful book. It's a very easy read, with Denis telling anecdotes with every picture, alongside comments from players he both played with and against, all of whom clearly hold him in the highest regard. And, as Sir Alex Ferguson relates, Pele once said that Denis was the only British player who might have made it into the Brazil team. That's how good he was.

I do not usually buy or even read "autobiographies" of sportsmen, but when one of my youthful heroes brought his out, I just had to buy it. It is well written, easy to read, and the many photographs it contains brought back memories of stars of yesteryear. Unusally for this kind of reminiscence, The King has nothing ill to say of anyone, which given the many kickings I saw him endure, is miraculous. A great Christmas present for MU fans, young and old.

A great insight to one of Scotland's greatest ever players. The photographs just reinforce how "electric" the man was on a football pitch and they also illustrate what a pampered lot the current Premiership players are playing on manicured lawns each week. A great start for someone who never saw The Lawman play. It gives you a glimpse of just how great he was and what football was all about in days when players were not pampered, overpaid wimps.
