Description

“The best book about football I have read by someone who has actually played the game…everyone who has ever dreamt of a sporting career should read it” Nick Hornby

The season began so well for the Republic of Ireland international midfielder Eamon Dunphy at Millwall — and ended in disillusionment and being on the transfer list. In this classic memoir, he charts the progress of the team during a season that begins with such high hopes and is filled throughout with high drama. Populated with extraordinary characters — and with access to the dressing room that would be impossible today — Only a Game? is both a riveting read and an exceptional insight into professional sport.
