I understand it is a life's work and Celtic was only five years but it was a huge job, with many situations occurring and controversies. Martin O’Neill is widely regarded as one of the most respected figures in football with a career spanning more than 50 years. As Celtic manager between 2000 and 2005, he led that club to seven trophies including three Scottish Premier League titles and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final. Bought this for my mum as an xmas present and to my surprise there's a big ol' sticker on the cover saying it's a signed copy!

O'Neill has been one of the more interesting characters in football over the years and so it's no surprise that this is one of the better football autobiographies I have read. It is detailed, amusing and you get an idea of the man, his temper and his self assurance as a player. Luminous, elegant, haunting - I read it straight through' Philippe Sands, author of East West Street.In this controversial and exciting listen, Pollan explores caffeine’s power as the most-used drug in the world - and the only one we give to children (in soda pop) as a treat.

I would say this is a true football supporters book as the text is specific to events, matches and seasons that the true supporter will remember. For the first time Martin O'Neill reflects on one of the most varied and interesting football careers in the British Isles.

He reveals what it was like to play under Clough during the glory years, and their incredible journey from the second division to winning the First Division championship, two League Cups and back-to-back European Cups. Martin O’Neill has had one of the most incredible careers in football – winning European Cups, captaining his country at a world cup, and decades as a hugely successful manager. Michael Pollan, known for his best-selling nonfiction audio, including The Omnivores Dilemma and How to Change Your Mind, conceived and wrote Caffeine: How Caffeine Created the Modern World as an Audible Original.

He became Republic of Ireland manager in 2013 and beat the reigning world champions Germany in the process of qualifying for the 2016 UEFA European Championship for the third time in the nation's history and they made it to the second round for the first time ever. He oversaw the Republic of Ireland reaching the Euros in 2016, when they made it to the second round for the first time in their history.It is a story about love and misunderstanding and about the ways that our most painful experiences - so crucial in defining us - can also be redefined. p>Written with his trademark honesty and humour, this autobiography is from one of the most compelling and well-respected players and managers in football, Martin O'Neill. As Celtic manager he led the club to seven trophies, including three Scottish Premier League titles, and to the 2003 UEFA Cup final. There are not enough examples of situations that occur with individuals and he barely references many big games with Celtic or the last two seasons he was there.

I particularly enjoyed watching his Leicester City side that won 2 League Cups, his Celtic side that broke Rangers stranglehold on the Scottish league and his exciting Irish side that made the second round of the European Championships against all odds. Few players who go on into management can have experienced such a variety of triumphant experiences. This is a tidy little book, it charts the progress of a man who I am sure will be fondly remembered as a football genius by my generation.
