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?

Where does The Gaffer: The Trials and Tribulations of a Football Manager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

What I like about this book is it's insight into the game, without spending all its time devoted to the Premier League. As a Palace fan, it was interesting to get his view of the Jordan Years and he offers a warts and all account of a lively career. You may not agree with all he has to say, but he says it with passion and humour. He reads well and holds your attention.
