Michael Parkinson on Football

by Michael Parkinson

Michael Parkinson on Football Synopsis

In this fascinating and often hilarious volume Parkinson gives his views on most aspects of the modern game, whilst also casting his mind back to a time when newspapers didn't care whether footballers wore their wives knickers or not. He pays tribute to some of the great names of the past such as Stanley Matthews and Bobby Moore, and offers opinions on more recent headline-makers like Paul Gascoigne and Eric Cantona. Superstars such as George Best and David Beckham are also discussed, with one of the most respected observers of both sport and celebrity bringing his unique personal insight to bear.

About Michael Parkinson

Although, he didn't manage to fulfil the first half of his ambition, he has since become one of the most successful journalists of his generation. He wrote a sports column for The Sunday Times for fifteen years and has also written for the Telegraph. He is also a legendary TV and radio presenter - his long-running chat show Parkinson was hugely popular for many years.
