Not only have the players got more money and celebrity over the past thirty years but football managers now find themselves in the lime light more and more. This book is full of some brilliant and funny anecdotes along with profiles of some of the more fascinating and entertaining managers and a look at just how much the job has changed over the years. An entertaining and witty read for all football fans.
This is a book about the dramatic change in status and style of the football manager. It describes in detail the journey from man with sponge - and perhaps a medicine ball - through flamboyant medallion-wearing eccentric, to handsome celebrity millionaire fronting up a UN anti-landmine campaign. Football journalist Barney Ronay writes hilariously about this transition, examining the idiosyncrasies of some of our favourite gaffers along the way and unearthing a wealth of previously unknown anecdotes as well.
