Read this years ago when I was obsessed with football. Still a Celtic supporter though. Was pretty good although parts of it are pretty bland.
"Wee" Gordon Strachan talks candidly about his career as both player and manager, although not candidly enough for me as a Southampton fan. I wanted him to dish the dirt on a certain Rupert Lowe but he only skirts around the problems he had with him. Still as an autobiography it is very forthright and amusing, just like the man himself.
