Description

If a Frenchman goes on about seagulls, trawlers and sardines, he's called a philosopher. I'd just be called a short Scottish bum talking crap' - Gordon Strachan. Unpredictable and quick witted, Gordon Strachan has been one of the greatest exponents of the post-match interview. As a manager, first at Coventry City and then Southampton, Strachan's comments were guarenteed to be at least as entertaining as the actual match itself. His contribution to this much miligned ritual alone would be enough to guarentee his a special place in the history of British football, but it cannot obscure his major achievements as a player in the top flight, winning championships and cups on both sides of the border, earning fifty caps for Scotland and playing in two World Cup Finals. From Dundee to Aberdeen and then to Manchester United and Leeds, Gordon Strachan has forged a career which many can envy. In this updated edition of his critically acclaimed biography, author Leo Moynihan reveals a man who was passionate and tireless as a player, and has shown himself to be as equally committed and fiery as a manager.show more
