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?

Although Neil Warnock usually divides opinion amongst football fans Ive always quite liked his down to earth, honest style and this really comes across in his book. Its basically his life story but with alot more focus on the recent history especially at QPR. The QPR part of the book is very interesting and shows how modern football management works with the chain of command, foreign owners, takeovers and transfer deadline day. This is a great listen for any football fan, really enjoyed it
