Insights from a master

The first 1/3 of the book is more of an autography, almost as if he has to justify why he's entitled to give his opinion throughout the rest of it. And he doesn't hold back on that. For example, he loves Dutch football, but gets frustrated by it, rues the dying art of the old fashioned centre back, thinks more technology involvement to support referees isn't a good thing. I don't agree with everything he says, but his experience and talent makes it difficult to argue with him. He also analyses the pros and cons of different formations, managers, clubs, and nations. It's a fascinating insight into the mind of one football's all time greats and, agree with him or not, it's worth a listen.

More like how to watch and how I played!

Parts were very informative, of tactics, other parts seemed very informative about his career, not what I was after.

Sections of the book often seemed very random, going from video refs>boots>gravy, I thought I had the playback on shuffle!

Overall as semi biography it was ok, but as a reference as to what to look for I don't think it will be useful, it's not a tactical guide or manual.
