About this title


Ireland's leading football pundit and legend of the game John Giles will look back on more than fifty years of football, at developments in the game from the post-War period to the present day, the great players who drove it forward, the visionary managers and their teams, and the age-old question of what makes a player good and what makes one great.

About the Author:

John Giles was born in Dublin in 1940. A prodigiously gifted young footballer, at just 15 years of age, Giles moved to Manchester, playing for the Manchester United youth team. And in 1959, the year after the Munich Air Disaster, he made his debut for the Man United first team against Spurs, beginning a career at the top of the game that was to span three decades. He moved to the then second-division side Leeds United in 1963 where he became the linchpin of one of the world's great sides of the 60s and 70s. He played for the Republic of Ireland for almost two decades before moving to a player-manager role in later years. Giles is now a well known and greatly respected football analyst.
