9780091957568: A Man Walks on to a Pitch...: Stories from a Life in Football

Harry's tales and insight into the game he's lived and breathed for 50 years.
     Whether he likes it or not Harry's been so long in the game, his No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling autobiography Always Managing could only get to grips with the most basic dramas of his 50-odd years in football. He has so many more tales and observations about the game to share. So here is the story of the decades Harry has spent watching, playing and managing in football, of those he's met and what he has seen come and go in that time. From his first pair of football boots and the stars he first idolised as a boy in the 50s, to those he played alongside in the 60s from Jimmy Greaves to Georgie Best, through all the characters he's met, for better or worse, over the years that followed as a manager. 
    Along the way, Harry chooses a first XI for each decade in football, using this to tell the stories of the people and places in the game he loves with the same humour and affection that has always made him such a fans' favourite.
