Brill to read, just like he was to watch. Still love to see the saves he made, especially ones such as the one against Rapid Vienna. Lucky to go to Old Trafford & watch him live, lucky to read this.

At last the greatest goalkeeper and pharhaps Manchester United player gives us his autobiography, in which he writes whole chapters about Eric Cantona, Sir Alex Ferguson, and the Ian Wright episode. He also looks back briefly on his childhood, and fond memories of his time at Brondby and Denmarks 1992 European cup victory. When reading his autobiography, its very clear that Schmeichel is confident in himself but looking at his career is it any wonder? After reading of the treble and key moments,he describes the 98 World cup and says farewell to England. The back of the book has around 25 pages (depending on paperback or hardback) showing his career record. Peter Schmeichel`s autobiography is a fantastic evaluation and credit to him, and is well recommended to both Manchester United fans as well as fans of the sport. Its unlikely you will regret buying his book.

Peter Schmeichel was seen as an idol to me, for goalkeeping attributes. This book offers large amounts information on his character and the events in his footballing career. The importance that Schmeichel would have on the Man Utd side from 1991 was unbelievable and unknown, but what Alex Ferguson claimed as to be his most succesful buy of his managing career spoke for it self.
A true giant among al goalkeepers both on and off the pitch showing honest character to all players despite his mouthing in the 16 yard box. Also an entire chapter to his controversial claims of racism towards Ian Wright. True spirit to what Peter Schmeichel has done at United.
What "Schmeichel The Autobiography" is about is his determination and skills in goal in his career and off the pitch. A brilliant read for any upcoming goalkeepers aswell as any football fanatic.

I got this book as a Christmas present and couldn't wait to read - was I disappointed, no! After reading Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography, this had to be next. What can I say? You never really know a person until you read their own story. A fantastic goalkeeper and a tremendous incentive for Man Utd in his 8 seasons with them. How different he is off the football pitch. Like so many others, you become a teamplayer when you're involved at such a level as Schmeichal. I couldn't put this book down and would thoroughly recommend it. I commend his comments on the Cantona incident and that of Ian Wright. I wish him well with Sporting Lisbon and congratulate him for helping Man Utd to win the Treble!

This book is a must for any Schmeichel fan. It follows his career from Hvidore to the hights he reached at United. There is also a section devoted to his time at the 1998 world cup. Great book.

Well not much you can say about this book. One of the most vacuous pieces of literature I have bothered to read. He managed to say almost nothing interesting in the whole book and to provide almost no insight into what it was like to be at the pinnacle of Manchester United for 8 successful years. Everything is so measured it might have been written by a lawyer and at times it borders on the sycophantic. Schmeichel makes it clear throughout that he dislikes journalists and maybe he was trying to bring the written word into disrepute with this contribution. His description of laying floors is not something I found greatly interesting, but apparently Schmeichel did. He even succeeds in making the famous spat with Ian Wright devoid of tension. Great keeper, rotten writer!
