In My Life in Football, Keegan tells the story of his life, from the streets of Doncaster to signing for Liverpool under Bill Shankly, where he won three First Division titles, two UEFA Cups, a European Cup and the FA Cup before moving to Hamburg, where he won the Bundasliga as well as the Ballon d'Or twice. After retiring, Keegan enjoyed a legendary five-year spell as manager at Newcastle United, during which the club was promoted to the Premier League and then finished runners up in the top flight, not once but twice.

This wonderful book took me back to the happiest memories I have as a Newcastle fan and some of the best times I enjoyed with my dad. A hero of my dad's as a player and a hero of us both as a manager. I can now appreciate much more fully Kevin achievements before my time and decisions which I couldn't understand on occasion. The book confirms why we all loved keegan, a charismatic. passionate man who wears his heart on his sleve. I only whish he'd narrated the audio book himself (no slight against the narrator, who is very good). Kevin, i wish you all the best in your retirement. Howay the lads!
