Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

What are the greatest football games ever played? Debated in every pub, stadium and dressing room up and down the country, everyone has their own opinion and their own memories of the beautiful game. 

Sharing his views on the greatest matches he has played in or enjoyed as a fan, Jamie Carragher takes listeners into the dressing room, on to the tour bus and out on to the pitch as he relives the defining moments of his playing career and the games that have shaped his relationship with the sport. 

"I want to look back at those special games that, as a kid, made me fall in love with the game; tell some of the untold stories about the big games I was lucky enough to play in and reflect on the great matches that, since retiring, I've been privileged to witness as a pundit and a fan."

Told with the same wit, humour, intelligence and passion behind his hit podcast and his punditry, The Greatest Games sees Jamie speak to teammates, rivals, managers and legends of the game - from Steven Gerrard to Paolo Maldini, Wayne Rooney to Rafa Benitez, Xabi Alonso to Gary Neville. With their help, Jamie shines a fresh light on a selection of the beautiful game's greatest matches: title deciders, cup finals, against all odds comebacks, underdog tales, old school classics, tactical masterclasses and end to end thrillers.

Packed full of hilariously stories, exclusive anecdotes and revealing insights, these are Jamie Carragher's greatest games.

Liverpool Heavy Book By Ex-Liverpool Player

Too much Liverpool and England. Laughable that England v Germany is here.

Excellent football book

An absolutely enjoyable listen from start to finish. Added information on games I knew about and introduced me in an enjoyable way to those I didn't.

Just like the podcast absolute boss!

Great book and well worth a listen if you like that podcast he has under the same name, good in-depth analysis on all matches and being a red is especially enjoyable hearing about some of my personal favourite games

Exceptional

In the partisan sports world... There are many reasons I admire Carragher; many reasons others may not.

Forget all of it; this is an exceptional book and audiobook.

It is rare to find a new sports book with an interesting angle, I love analysis, reading about teams, success, tactics, personalities, athletes and coaches.

This is something else, all areas covered but with a beautiful turn of phrase and fantastic insight and emotion.

Definitely recommend
