THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

The book reviews from WSC 303 are online now. Dietmar Hamann's autobiography, The Didi Man, shows the player to be a true romantic who is in love with Liverpool and in awe of the club's former boss Rafa Benitez. Graduation, by Richard Lee, is another promising autobiography. Lee tells the story of his lifechanging season with Brentford, in which the goalkeeper used neuro-linguistic programming to help him deal with his acute mental anxiety. David Weir's autobiography was a missed opportunity according to our reviewer: "Rather than an expansive story about a successful and well-travelled international footballer, Extra Time reads more like a cosy, wee, homespun chat around the fire with the local newspaper." Finally, Up Pohnpei is a fascinating account of a frustrated football writer's attempt to become an international manager.
