5.0 out of 5 stars It's not just about the football, 8 Mar. 2008
I loved this book, the on-going story of a man managing a junior football team is intertwined around his feelings about his son growing up and the effect this has on their relationship. I thought there was a great mix of humour, intersting insights from ex-players and just a tiny hint of melancholy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Less a book about a football club, more a story about the author, 26 Dec. 2007
The last line of the postscript perfectly sums up the main problem I had with reading this book. The author talks about Gordon Strachan the Coventry manager at the time: "I have great respect for his work. He said he felt the same way about me." This is one of a number of examples in the book where Rick Gekoski inserts himself into the the story. It's a shame because, with the sort of access he had to the club, this could have been an excellent book had he seen himself more as a fly on the wall, rather than an integral part of the story.
