Following a spell in Rome as English correspondent with Corriere dello Sport, Brian returned in 1958 to London to cover his first World Cup in Sweden.

He hasnt missed one since, and this personal and revealing collection sheds light on over 50 years of life in the commentary box. Notorious for his forthright views and lack of apprehension in expressing them, Glanville has made as many, if not more, enemies than friends- his accrimonious relationship with former England boss Graham Taylor is well known and is documented in the book.

But he also refuses to pull his punches about others. Brian Glanvilles compelling commentary on the changing face of sport is an all-round story of one mans obsession with the beautiful game.
