Publisher's Summary

A rollicking football memoir from one of the best-known figures in British football. With nearly 20 years as a player - plus almost 25 years as a coach and manager - under his belt, Sam Allardyce is one of the most recognisable figures in British football.
"Big Sam" was a robust defensive general throughout the '70s and '80s and has been an imposing touchline presence as a gaffer since 1994. Until he left West Ham in the summer of 2015, he was the second longest-serving manager in the Premier League behind Arsene Wenger.
Over the last 42 years, Allardyce has seen it all. The game he so loves is radically different from that in which he made his debut back in 1973, and in telling his wonderfully colourful story for the very first time, Allardyce talks intriguingly about the changing face of players and managers. His autobiography positively crackles with characteristic insight, honesty and hard-hitting opinions.

Bad voice

Good book and well written

Shame about the annoying voice who's attempt at a Sam pseudo Black Country accent was incredibly annoying

Fascinating insight into the game.

Some really interesting experiences shared by Sam. Comes across as down to earth with a no nonsense approach to the game and life. I've often wondered how he would have worked out at Newcastle if given more time and had the football been better.

if Sam is half as good as he reckons Sunderland will be in good hands.

I enjoyed the reading, kept it moving and held my interest. Would recommend.
