Archive for the ‘Jose Mourinho: The Art of Winning’ Category

Now The Guardian’s at it; advertising my really quite grim book on what United’s appointment of ‘The (not so) Special One’ says about Manchester United and the Premier League alongside a very negative piece on Mourinho by the writer Jonathan Wilson. You can take a look here.

Kicking a man when he’s down, eh?

Remember, you can buy the book from here. Help it on its inexorable rise towards Christmas number 1 (it’s already the 21st best-selling Premier League book, a full two years after its publication) at the same time as the team plummets…

Following on from The Daily Express last week digging out a quote from my book Jose Mourinho: The Art of Winning this week Tribal Football have again delved into my archives to pull out some stuff about Mourinho’s cardboard cutout (with a hidden tape recorder). You can read the piece here.

And remember to buy your copy of the book while stocks last (or while Jose lasts) from here.

But my sportswriting for Radio Five Live wasn’t just limited to football. I also enthusiastically covered other sports, including, in this case, the 2001 Grand National. I just so happened to have backed the winning horse (a massive outsider) in this case, which probably explains some of that enthusiasm…

If you read yesterday’s flash piece on a Leeds United Champions League tie in the early noughties, you might be hungry to read a more in-depth piece on the same game. So here goes. This is the piece which Radio Five Live accepted for their site:
