FOOTBALL MEMORIES Summary

FOOTBALL MEMORIES by Brian Glanville

In this eloquently irreverent volume of memoirs, celebrated broadcaster and writer Brian Glanville looks back over his career as sports journalist with a wealth of anecdotes and a crop of unique stories. Following a spell in Rome as English correspondent with 'Corriere dello Sport', Brian returned in 1958 to London to cover his first World Cup in Sweden. He hasn't missed one since, and this personal and revealing collection sheds light on over 50 years of life in the commentary box. Notorious for his forthright views and lack of apprehension in expressing them, Glanville has made as many, if not more, enemies than friends; his accrimonious relationship with former England boss Graham Taylor is well known and is documented in the book. But he also refuses to pull his punches about others. Brian Glanville's compelling commentary on the changing face of sport is an all-round story of one man's obsession with the beautiful game.
