Rodfather H/B

By Collins Roddy & Howard Paul



'There isn't a funnier sports book this year - there might not be one for the next decade' Irish Times Books of the Year _________ The hilarious memoir from the funniest man in football - the perfect gift for sports lovers this Christmas! Roddy Collins is a football man - now in the sixth decade of a career as a player (at sixteen clubs), manager (twelve clubs) and commentator. And he is a funny man: an unequalled raconteur with a sharp eye for the absurdities of the professional game and spectacular recall. He has made friends wherever he has gone, along with some high-quality enemies. When John Delaney said he could get Roddy a job if he'd just stop criticising him, Roddy replied that he'd 'rather dig holes in the road'. Now, with the brilliant Paul Howard, Roddy puts it all down on paper for the first time - the adventures, the rows and the craic - in what is not only one of the funniest but also one of the most eye-opening books ever written about professional football. SHORTLISTED FOR SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AT THE IRISH BOOK AWARDS ________ '[It] might be the funniest book written since Roddy Doyle's The Van . . . There's a laugh on every page' Irish Examiner 'Terrific. You will love it' Joe Brolly, Sunday Independent 'Fantastic. Can't remember a sports book with so many stories to propel it along. There's at least three different movies in it' Malachy Clerkin 'Candid tales of football, family and everything in between - just brilliant' Irish Independent 'A riot!' Brendan O'Connor 'What a life, what a book. I highly recommend it' Tadhg Coakley, Irish Examiner
