Whatever your affiliation it is difficult not to admire (perhaps grudgingly) the phenomenal success Sir Alex Ferguson achieved at Manchester United. While his previous books have dealt explicitly with the football this is the book many of us were really hoping he would write. This is the insight into how those achievements were made possible not simply how they happened. This takes us through the skills and discipline Sir Alex feels are essential to creating a longevity of success, a lasting legacy.
Goldblatt’s magnum opus is The Ball is Round, is an all-encompassing global history of the beautiful game. Here in The Game of Our Lives he focusses on the English game and how it winds like a thread through our national consciousness like no other sport or arguably cultural phenomenon. Looking at how English football has metamorphosed from a dying, violent game to the huge global money driver it is today Goldblatt has produced the definitive history of English football of modern times. Wonderful!
