Gavin Newsham

Regular price $12.88

From the publisher:

An entertaining and effervescent history of the English Premier League told through the words and quotations of its players, managers, their contemporaries and the media. Relive the highs and lows, the drama and fun of 25 years of the Premier League through this exceptional compilation, which brings together the very best quotes, comments and soundbites to tell the story of eachincident-packed season. Remember Kevin Keegan's on-air meltdown? Or Paolo Di Canio's shove? How about those jaw-on-the-floor goals like Tony Yeboah's volley or Sergio Aguero's last gasp title-winning goal for Manchester City? And what about some of those teams that set the competition alight - like swash-buckling Newcastle, all-conqueringManchester United and Arsenal's fabled 'Invincibles'? All the Premier League's sensational stories, extraordinary incidents and dazzling moments are told here through the voices, views and reflections of the managers and players involved.

'You Can't Win Anything With Kids' also provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy some of the funniest, most insightful and sometimes perplexing soundbites from the last 25 years, from the endlessly amusing spat between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger to Jurgen Klopp's off-the-wall reflections, Eric Cantona's deeplyphilosophical musings and, of course, Alan Hansen's profoundly misplaced pronouncements...
