For the very first time, and straight from the horse's mouth, a top manager's intriguing insights into the daily trials and tribulations, the joyous peaks and soul-destroying troughs of life as a football 'gaffer'. Ever wondered how a transfer deal is done? What a manager says during his pre-match team-talk? What he screams from the technical area? What goes on in training sessions, and on those long away trips? How a manager carefully builds a team, and what he does when the planning is disrupted by injuries?

Thought there might have been a bit of humour in the book but there wasn't.
It was a bit like a diary where everyone is against him and he is the only one who is right. .
Stuck with it but the overall read was a bit depressing.
