From Ron Atkinson's chunky gold jewellery and Brian Clough's acerbic tongue to Sir Alex's hairdryer and the Jose Mourinho's Matalan coat, this is the first book to celebrate everything connected with being a football manager. This light-hearted gift book will explore the many aspects of Being the Gaffer, from dressing room approach, football philosophy through to their dress sense, charisma, fearsome feuds and cutting wit. Packed with classic quotes, fascinating biographies, hilarious stories, exclusive contributions and fun photography, Ian Valentine's unique book profiles over 50 of the most famous as well as notorious managers to have ever taken charge of a professional football team. "Being the Gaffer!" features amongst others: 'The Greats' - Bill Shankly, Brian Clough, Sir Matt Busby, Sir Alf Ramsey and Herbert Chapman; 'The Characters' - Ron Atkinson, Kevin Keegan, Harry Redknapp and Terry Venables; and, 'The Infamous' - Don Revie, Neil Warnock and John Beck. Football management is widely regarded as one of the toughest jobs in the world and this is the long overdue celebration of the man in the dugout.
