Waterstones Says

Written with his customary wit and insight, On Days Like These chronicles O'Neill's fifty-year career as player and manager, from winning back-to-back European Cups under Brian Clough to steering the Republic of Ireland to the second round of Euro 2016.

Martin O'Neill is one of the most fascinating and respected figures in football. On Days Like These tells the story of his remarkable career.

For the first time, Martin O'Neill reflects on one of the most varied and successful football careers in the British Isles. He made his breakthrough playing for Distillery in Northern Ireland before joining Brian Clough's legendary Nottingham Forest team, becoming one of the few players who made the epic journey from the Second Division to the glory years: winning the First Division championship, two League Cups and back-to-back European Cups. O'Neill represented Northern Ireland over sixty times, playing alongside George Best and captaining the side at the 1982 World Cup, where they reached the quarter-finals.

As a manager, O'Neill's celebrated leadership of Celtic saw them win seven trophies, including three Scottish Premier League titles; and in England he successfully led Leicester City to two League Cups and Aston Villa to an unprecedented three consecutive top six Premier League finishes. He oversaw the Republic of Ireland reaching the Euros in 2016, when they made it to the second round for the first time in their history.

With a career spanning over fifty years, Martin tells of his exhilarating highs and painful lows; from the joys of winning trophies, promotion and fighting for World Cups to being harangued by fans, boardroom drama, relegation scraps and being fired. Written with his trademark honesty and humour, On Days Like These is one of the most insightful and captivating autobiographies and a must-read for any fans of the beautiful game.

“Really interesting read.”

I enjoyed this book a good deal, because Martin describes his football journeyvery eloquently throughout, sometimes in a self deprecating way, but always with clarity and honesty. I hadn't fully grasped how... More
