enjoyed the book, probably because it took me back to the early 1980s and my love of Football / Arsenal, was interesting to read about the player dynamics and sacking of Terry Neill. His vision into the future of football contained some accurate predictions.

Format: Hardcover
Reading Terry Neill's book for the first time (and about 27 years after it was first published) makes for a really different, but still very enjoyable reading experience. Yes, Neill makes references to a number of events and prominent soccer people prior to 1985, but he also makes a good spattering of references to how he thinks things will turn out in the future - some of which have proven prophetic and some not. For example, and regarding the latter, Neill states that ever-spiraling upward transfer fees will be a thing of the past before too long, because clubs will prefer not to pay huge transfer fees. They will prefer to pay each other low ones and, instead, pay the players much more than they would otherwise have expected. Well, he is wrong because of course we have now had transfer fees as high as 80 million pounds (Ronaldo to Real Madrid from Manchester Utd) and even the hapless Fernando Torres cost Chelsea 50 million pounds from Liverpool! But, then again, he could be said to be right... but only in the cases of end-of-contract Bosman players who go for nothing, and who get paid more than a fortune in wages and signing on fees, etc. He also didn't believe top flight stadia would be all-seaters, believing that it would go against the spirit of the sport not to have terraces for standing. I agree with him wholeheartedly regarding the 'spirit' thing. As for being prophetic... I confess: I don't have the book at hand, as I type :-( Therefore, you will have to take my word that some things Neill refers to have come to pass, but none that stand out so that I can tell you right now. Sorry! :o
