As a football and Nottingham forest fan I was eager to get my hands on this book. It is well written and intesting to read. John Mcgovern gives a no nonsense honest account of his life both inside and outside of football. My only disappointment was that I read the book on my Ipad and there were no photographs or illustrations. I am not to sure if I will continue with Kindle editions.
I liked all of the book, fascinating at what goes on behind closed doors of football players/managers when they not on the field of play. I would recommend this book to all Forest and footy fans and 5 stars is well worth it.
It was interesting to find out about Johns expoits with the Forest team during their great days. It was also good to understand and experience his time as a Manager after he stoped playing. I really enjoyed this book
A brilliant read. One of the most respected Club Captains by his colleagues, but not by the fans "until he was not there"; then they realised what he did for the team!!!!!! The "ups and downs" of his life are all there to read about. How was his relationship with Brian Clough? Read this book for the answer!!!
What a great read one of the best football biographies I have read and I have read many .And people should remember John McGovern was a great player .I cannot believe a Scot with 2 European cup winner runs never got a cap for his country .
A good book written by a vastly underrated footballer, there is more to John McGovern than his neat style of play and his unusual running style. Gives a good insight into life at the top and bottom of the football ladder.
I bought the Kindle version of this book. It is a genuine autobiography by the most underrated player of his generation. An excellent read from beginning to end.Most of tadays players could learn from him about how to conduct yourself on and off the pitch.
