We Need to Talk about Kevin Keegan : A Bumper Book of Football Writing
Santrauka: Gary Neville's choice of wedding venue, the use of underpants in goal celebrations - Giles Smith has never fought shy of hitting the big issues head on. Now, in this compilation of his most fearless and forthright public declarations, he invites readers to chew with him on more of football's biggest bullets. It is strange to read a book packed with piquant ironies, but at the same time utterly baffling. For example, why does Smith muse, apropos of Claudia Schiffer's attendance at a party for Chelsea Football Club's 100th birthday, "I'd never be able to prise her away from Bobby Campbell and Ian Porterfield"? There is also the vexing conundrum of whether Michaela Henderson-Thynne should be allowed to appear on the reality TV show WAGS Boutique following her break-up with Stuart Downing, "The so-called quiet man of the England squad". For those familiar with the dramatis personae, hilarity is guaranteed.
