Description

'They've kicked it away again, for God's sake!', 'You halfwit!', there's nothing traditional about Brian Moore's style of commentary but then there's not much that's traditional about the man. Brian Moore made his name, of course, as a take-no-prisoners hooker at the heart of the England rugby team's pack, one of the game's original hard men at a time when rugby was still an amateur sport. And since his retirement he has earned a reputation as a similarly unforgiving pundit, never afraid to tell it like it is and give an earful to anyone unlucky enough to meet with his disapproval.

In this controversial, funny and forthright collection of thoughts and writings, Brian Moore sets the world to rights in his own inimitable fashion. Ranging from the problems with the England rugby team today to the 'soap opera' that is the FA, the feeble state of British tennis and the threats posed by corruption and drug-taking,Brian shares his unique insights and not-so-unique frustrations about the world of sport and beyond.

The Thoughts of Chairman Mooreis an engaging and outspoken collection of articles from one of our most admired commentators.
