Football - bloody hell! : the biography of Alex Ferguson by Patrick Barclay( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Ferguson is the most fascinating and controversial figure in football today. He is also the most successful. His twenty five year tenure of the Manchester United dugout has seen him win everything there is to be won in football, many times over. His reign as manager has led to the rise of Manchester United to become the biggest football club in the world. This book, written by the award-winning and critically acclaimed Patrick Barclay, will fill in the gaps left by the Ferguson's own book, Managing My Life. Everyone who bought that book will want Barclay's comprehensive, objective analysis of Ferguson, the good and the bad, and the occasionally ugly and it will also appeal hugely to those outside the Manchester United extended family for whom Ferguson has often acted as a red rag. Having known Ferguson for a quarter of a century, Barclay believes him to be generous-spirited as well as ruthless and relentlessly competitive; in such an almost larger than life character, there is room for countless facets. And it is these facets that Barclay seeks to explore and explain
The life and times of Herbert Chapman by Patrick Barclay( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbert Chapman, the boss of the all-conquering Arsenal side of the 1930s, was the father of all soccer managers, arguably the greatest of all time, and certainly the most imaginative. Many of the game's furniture, including floodlights and numbered shirts, were designed by him--even the tradition of a manager leading his team out at the FA Cup Final at Wembley--as were tactics that survive to this day and which can be detected in the great Barcelona team that has dominated European competition in recent years, three quarters of a century after his premature death in 1934. Working mostly for clubs in the north of England, including playing for Worksop, Northampton, Sheffield United, and Notts County, he retired from playing at the age of 29 to become a manager at Northampton. He moved to Leeds in 1912, then left to work in a munitions factory for the duration of the war, leaving under a cloud of scandal, later proved innocent. He managed Huddersfield for a time, where he built a team that was to win three English championship titles in succession. He then left for Arsenal and won three in four years. He died before the third title arrived at Highbury, but no one doubted to whom the credit was due. This book weaves Chapman's life into the times through which he lived, combining the narrative with both soccer playing and social history of the inter-war years, the dramatic era of the general strike, and the Depression of the 1930s. Among those who will testify to his soccer legacy are his successors at Arsenal: George Graham, who made a close study of his life, and Arsene Wenger, who knew of Chapman's special place in the pantheon even before taking over at Highbury."--Provided by publisher

José Mourinho er en mye omtalt, omdiskutert og utskjelt mann - men også forgudet av fotballfans verden rundt. Som tenåring innså han at drømmen om å bli profesjonell fotballspiller ikke ville bli en realitet. Da bestemte han seg for å bli verdens beste trener i stedet. Han har tatt outsiderlaget Porto til seier i Champions League, gjort Chelsea til en av Europas mest suksessrike klubber, igjen vunnet Champions League med Inter Milan, for så å lede Real Madrid gjennom en rekke triumfer. Dette er historien om en helt spesiell fotballtrener. Hva er hemmeligheten bak suksessen? Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
