STRACHAN – My Life in Football, (Soccer, Gordon Strachan)
1 in stock
Gordon Strachan has had one of the most illustrious careers in modern football. As a player, he was the heartbeat of Alex Ferguson’s Aberdeen in the early 1980s, before being signed by Ron Atkinson to play for Manchester United. He captained Leeds to championship in the early 1990s, won 50 Scottish caps and went on to manage Coventry and Southampton. A former regular on Match of the Day, and one of the most honest and interesting voices on the game.
This book is a fascinating mix of both Gordon’s story and a brilliant analysis on the way the game is played and run. Refreshingly candid on everything from the stress and pressure managers are under to the players and bosses Gordon has worked with, this was the one of the most explosive football books of 2007.
Every general cricket book in this section has not been paid for by the Wisden Collectors’ Club or Wisdenworld. Sometimes when Wisden collections are acquired by Wisdenworld, the seller has other non-almanacks and invariably, they are eager to dispose of them. I make it absolutely clear to the people with these books that I DO NOT have much idea on their worth and it might be best if they seek another opinion or another buyer. On most occasions, especially when dealing with a collection from someone who has passed away, they simply wish the headache removed.
It is only right that if I have not paid for these books, then every single penny including the postage paid goes to a worthy cause or two.
ALL Proceeds (including Postage) from books taken from the Latest Offers And Giveaways section of the website will be split between The Alzheimer’s Society and The Kings Arms Project (Bedford).
Thank you so much for looking and if you purchase any editions, happy reading!
