Description

The manager is the most enigmatic of all men, the most powerful of all positions, the man who can make, break and even take from his club. But do they really make a difference? Inside this study some of the world's finest football writers have come together to wrestle with that essential question. Dave Cottrell of "Goal" magazine writes on the secret of the Liverpool boot room, Stephen Wagg considers the rise of the modern manager, and Miguel Rico, editor of "Sport of Barcelona", considers Johan Cruyff - genius or charlatan? From Busby, Stein and Ferguson to Winterbottom, Clough and Venables, from Barcelona to Columbia and Manchester United to Arsenal, every aspect of the modern manager is considered. This examination opens with top managers and players in conversation. Ruud Gullit, George Graham, Kevin Keegan, Jorge Valdano, Bobby Robson and Graham Taylor are among those discussing the nature of the role.show more
