Description - Michael Parkinson on Football by Michael Parkinson

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.
