Intersting points within the book but seemed to skim through a lot of the information which I already knew. The Galatarsary incident was just a passing thing he did everyday. He does not apologise for much in this book. Wanted to know more
I really liked this book,Graeme Souness is someone who really knows what he’s talking about.I found I agreed with virtually everything he said about the game,and his take on the players mentioned in the book.He doesn’t sit on the fence,rather he gives an honest opinion.And having been a great player with such a positive winning mentality throughout is career,he has the credentials to give his insightful and common sense take on the game.A few surprises for me along the way also,one being his friendship with Glen Hoddle.Although Graham has mellowed a bit since retiring from management,he still calls it as he sees it.From a personnel level,I feel he would be appreciated even more if he allowed himself to see the funny side a little more,in his latter years,rather than just praise or criticism when asked for his opinion as a pundit.
The title of this book should have been Graeme Souness: My opinions on football and the Premier League.
I was massively disappointed by this book. He doesn’t go into a great deal of detail about his time anywhere really. It felt like a rushed book and most of the time he’s just talking about his opinions of the current game.
Could and should have been better, a bit like his managerial career.
Looked forward to reading about Souness’ playing and managerial career, but too much of the book is written from his media position. I didnt buy the book to read about his thoughts on Ronaldo or Messi, or how he thinks his teams and styles measure up with today’s. Too little about his time with Rangers and other managerial situations.
