England Managers: The Toughest Job in Football by Brian Glanville
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The England national team has had only eleven full-time managers - and Brian Glanville has known them all. In this fascinating account of each man - his strengths, weaknesses and impact on the game - Brian Glanville provides an in-depth analysis of the national team in general as well as the individuals under scrutiny. Funny, controversial, measured and thought-provoking, Glanville's assessment of why England has, for the most part, underachieved, will be required reading for all football fans and for every member of the FA Committee - if they are prepared to read some unpalatable truths. On Revie: "He was never cut out for the lonely exposed life of an international manager - almost pathologically thin-skinned." On Robson: "A mixture of good and bad luck characterised his years. He never seemed fully in control." On Venables: "Highly competent but appointed a few years too late." On Hoddle: "A curate's egg of a regime."


Shortlisted for British Sports Book Awards: Best Football Book 2008.
