Football Memories by Glanville, Brian

2014-03-03 Review: When Brian Glanville left Charterhouse aged 17 in 1949, he reluctantly became an articled clerk after it was made apparent to him that football journalism was no career for a gentleman. All that was to change later that summer when he walked into the offices of the Italian Corriere dello Sport in Rome. The newspaper made him their English correspondent, even though he couldnt speak a word of Italian. : : Football Memories charts Granvilles life, as a journalist, writer and player, since that day. Having covered every World Cup since Sweden in 1958 and met, interviewed and written about just about every football great (and more than a few football reprobates) since then, he is certainly in a position of authority. : : His career in Italy is covered, as are the many years spent writing for the Sunday Times. But alongside the compelling personal tale is another, of how football has changed since the days when amateurs still played for England. (Many of those amateurs were Granvilles childhood heroes; some later joined him in the press box.) : : Notorious for his forthright views and lack of apprehension in expressing them, Glanville has made as many, if not more, enemies than friends; his accrimonious relationship with former England boss Graham Taylor is well known and is documented in the book. But he also refuses to pull his punches about others: we know, a football brain is sui generis. It does not preclude intellect outside the field of play, any more than an intellectual need necessarily be an unintelligent footballer. But the football brain is essentially a thing of instinct, the reductio ad absurdum being a player such as Paul Gascoigne, who is wonderfully inventive, aware and original on the filed, but displays few of these qualities off the pitch. Successful as a writer away from the press box, Glanville explains his career as an author in full and talks a lot about the Chelsea Casuals, the team he has run for years and still plays for at the age of 67. An all-round story of one mans obsession with the beautiful game. : : Synopsis: Glanville draws on his wealth of football knowledge to create an autobiography full of insight and anecdotes, highlighting his unique views on the games, leagues, players and the great changes world football has seen over the last five decades.Comments: clean and as new . Format: Hardcover. Pages: 280.

A Civil War: Year Inside College Footballs Purest Rivalry by Feinstein, John


Little Brown and Co. 1996 first edition hardcover in dust jacket : 412 pages including index. Book Description: A CIVIL WAR is an unforgettable portrait of college football in the purest form: two teams that play for the love of the game and for the honour of their respective schools, rather than for money or fame. As Feinstein follows the Army and Navy football teams through a single season, he takes us into the locker rooms, onto the playing fields and inside the lives of the players and coaches. His book captures the personalities and the behind-the-scenes struggles - culminates in a vivid account of the teams dramatic December face-off, a stratling come-from-behind victory that resulted in a daredevil fourth-down touchdown attempt. Condition : Pristine/almost as new
