ALEX FERGUSON My Autobiography: The autobiography of the legendary Manchester United manager
Sir Alex Ferguson's compelling story is always honest and revealing he reflects on his managerial career that embraced unprecedented European success for Aberdeen and 26 triumphant seasons with Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson's best-selling autobiography has now been updated to offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour round the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised. The extra material adds fresh insights and detail on his final years as United's manager. Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting and accessible way for the general reader than Sir Alex does here. MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY is revealing, endlessly entertaining and above all inspirational.

The Mavericks: English Football When Flair Wore Flares
First published 25 years ago, The Mavericks was one of a new breed of sophisticated football titles. Artfully combining sports journalism with social history and sharp pop culture references, this updated edition explores 1970s football when a cult group of footballers delivered flair on the pitch and flamboyance off it. Cocky, coiffured strikers meet David Bowie and Alvin Stardust; Gola boots exchange kicks with A Clockwork Orange and The Likely Lads; Admiral sock tags, platform heels and kipper ties mingle with cod wars, Harrods bombings and three-day weeks. In this, Steen recreates the early Seventies, the era when football joined the vanguard of English youth culture. This personal account revolves around seven Englishmen who followed in the trail blazed by football's first tabloid star, George Best - Stan Bowles, Tony Currie, Charlie George, Alan Hudson, Rodney Marsh, Peter Osgood and Frank Worthington. Proud individuals amid an increasingly corporate environment, their invention and artistry were matched only by a disdain for authority and convention. Their belief in football as performance art, as showbiz, gave the game a boost, and elevated them to cult status. During their heyday, nevertheless, they were largely ignored by a succession of England managers, none of whom were able to assemble a side competent enough to qualify for the World Cup finals. Against a backdrop of increasing violence on the field and terraces alike, of battles between players and the Establishment, this book - now featuring a new Foreword, Postscript and photos - examines an anomaly at the heart of English culture, one that symbolised the death of post-Sixties optimism, the end of innocence.

Few cultural activities speak more powerfully to international histories of the modern world than football. In the late nineteenth century, this cheap and simple sport emerged as a major legacy of Britain's formal and informal empires and spread quickly across Europe, South America, and Africa. More slowly and hesitantly, it made inroads into the sports cultures of North America and Australasia. Today, football (known to many as soccer) is arguably the world's most popular pastime, an activity played and watched by millions of people around the globe. It has also become the focus of a rich and diverse body of scholarly research. Contested Fields introduces readers to key aspects of the global game, synthesizing research on football's transnational role in reflecting and shaping political, socio-economic, and cultural developments over the past 150 years. Each chapter uses case studies and cutting-edge scholarship to analyze an important element of football's international story: migration, money, competition, gender, race, space, spectatorship, and confrontation.

-Passmore's comics are infused with his interest in anarchism and punk politics. They are mediations on the issues of the day filtered through a punchy, pop art cartooning style and genre tropes. -A mixture of Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man, William Klein's Mr. Freedom and anarcho-punk philosophy. A biting satire of our current climate with analogues of Colin Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter, neo-liberalism, far-movements, and more mixed into this mediation on a melange of methodologies and approaches to navigating the current state of affairs. -His political cartoons in The Nib and his comics Your Black Friend and Daygloayhole have demonstrated his uncanny ability to present radical politics in genre that don't feel patronising or twee, but retain the bite of the concepts he presents without being pedantic. -Passmore's comics are tapping into the mindset of readers young and old who feel disenfranchised and broken down by the state of the world. He is a rising star as demonstrated by the success of 2016's Your Black Friend, which won an Ignatz Award, was nominated for an Eisner, was on NPR's list of 100 favourite comics and graphic novels of 2017, and was turned into an animated film. He is collaborating with Upgrade Soul cartoonist Ezra Claytan Daniels on the eagerly awaited BTTM FDRS in 2019 from Fantagraphics, further cementing that 2019 will be a big year for the young cartoonist.

America's Trailblazing Middle Linebacker: The Story of NFL Hall of Famer Willie Lanier
Willie Lanier was the first African-American middle linebacker in pro football history, playing for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1967-1977 in an era when discrimination against black athletes was still very much the norm. Lanier gave football fans a new mold of athlete, comprised of equal amounts intelligence, creativity, individualism, and collaboration. America's Trailblazing Middle Linebacker: The Story of NFL Hall of Famer Willie Lanier explores the life and times of this groundbreaking football star. A walk-on at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, Lanier established himself as a force on the field. Drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 1967, Lanier fought his way to the starting middle linebacker position and became a Super Bowl champion, an eight time All-Pro, and the NFL's Man of the Year in 1972. After retiring from football, Lanier went to work in the business world and became the CEO of a major US company. This book delves into Lanier's college years, his NFL exploits, and his many successes off the gridiron, revealing a man who, through hard work and determination, made the most of every opportunity that came his way. On and off the football field, Lanier showed America a glimpse of the future, when fairness, opportunity, and racial integrity could be the reality for everyone. An inspiration for athletes and fans everywhere, Lanier's story is that of a man who loved challenges, and faced every one of them with an unmatched drive to excel and succeed. Lanier was, and still is, a trailblazer.

Still in the Game: Finding the Faith to Tackle Life's Biggest Challenges
Be proud of your scars. They're signs that you survived whatever tried to break you. For Devon Still, life has been a journey from one scar to the next. From one challenge to the next. His is a story of pushing through pain and overcoming obstacles of all shapes and sizes-of choosing to fight for the sake of his family, his community, and his faith. Millions of people around the world have been inspired by Devon's tireless devotion in helping his daughter, Leah, learn how to beat up cancer. But in these pages Devon takes readers behind the headlines to reveal the deeper story of what prepared him for that fight, including growing up in the shadow of drugs and violence, working through the pain of his parents' divorce, overcoming injuries and scandal to shine as an All-American at Penn State University, beating the odds to play in the National Football League, and using his newfound platform to raise both awareness and resources in the global fight against cancer. Still in the Game is Devon's declaration that our challenges reveal our purpose, that our scars make us stronger, and that no loss is too great to stop our comeback!

David Beckham
David Beckham is the world's most famous football icon. In May this year he brought down the curtain on a hugely successful playing career that spanned two decades, during which he proudly wore the shirts of Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and England. He captained his country on 58 occasions, winning 115 international caps in total, an English record for an outfield player. His colourful and stellar career has been characterised by the emotional highs of great goals and remarkable trophy successes around the world, as well as by more than the occasional moment of set-back, disappointment and despair, but through it all Beckham has emerged as a universally adored figure, both inside and outside the game. Here, intimately talking us through 150 of his favourite images which define his playing days, he invites us behind the scenes of an incredible 20-year footballing journey.

The Baltimore Stallions: The Brief, Brilliant History of the CFL Champion Franchise
Baltimore is home to some of the greatest football players ever to step onto the gridiron. From the Colt's Johnny Unitas to the Raven's Ray Lewis, the Charm City has been blessed with multiple championship teams. Between the Colts and Ravens, a brief but significant chapter of Baltimore football history was written; the Stallions. Formed in 1994, they were the most successful franchise in the history of the Canadian Football League, in 1995 becoming the only U.S. team to win the Grey Cup. By 1996 the Stallions were gone, undermined by the arrival of the Ravens and the overall failure of the CFL's U.S. expansion efforts. Drawing on original interviews with players, coaches, journalists and fans, this book recalls how the Stallions both captured the imagination and broke the hearts of Baltimore football fans in just 24 months.

The League: How Five Rivals Created the NFL and Launched a Sports Empire
The epic tale of the five owners who shepherded the NFL through its tumultuous early decades and built the most popular sport in America The National Football League is a towering, distinctly American colossus spewing out $14 billion in annual revenue. But it was not always a success. In The League, John Eisenberg focuses on the pioneering sportsmen who kept the league alive in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, when its challenges were many and its survival was not guaranteed. At the time, college football, baseball, boxing, and horseracing dominated America's sports scene. Art Rooney, George Halas, Tim Mara, George Preston Marshall, and Bert Bell believed in pro football when few others did and ultimately succeeded only because at critical junctures each sacrificed the short-term success of his team for the longer-term good of the league. At once a history of a sport and a remarkable story of business ingenuity, The League is an essential read for any fan of our true national pastime.

People's Team: An Illustrated History of the Green Bay Packers
The definitive, lavishly illustrated history of the Green Bay Packers, commemorating the team's 100-year anniversaryNot only are the Packers the only fan-owned team in any of North America's major pro sports leagues, but Green Bay -- population 104,057 -- is also the smallest city with a big-time franchise. The Packers are, in other words, unlikely candidates to be pro football's preeminent team. And yet nobody in the NFL has won more championships. The story of Titletown, USA, is the greatest story in sports. Through extensive archival research and unmatched insider access to players and team officials, past and present, Mark Beech tells the first complete rags-to-riches history of the Green Bay Packers, a full chronicle of the most illustrious team in NFL history. The People's Team paints compelling pictures of a franchise, a town, and a fan base. No other team in pro sports is so bound to the place that gave birth to it. Here is the story of the Packers and of Green Bay -- from the days of the French fur traders who settled on the shores of La Baie in the seventeenth century, to the team's pursuit of its fourteenth NFL championship. Featuring essays by Peter King, Chuck Mercein, Austin Murphy, and David S. Neft, The People's Team is a must-have for fans, old and new, and the definitive illustrated history of the most important team in the NFL.

ALEX FERGUSON My Autobiography: The life story of Manchester United's iconic manager
Sir Alex announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United after 27 years in the role. He has gone out in a blaze of glory, with United winning the Premier League for the 13th time, and he is widely considered to be the greatest manager in the history of British football. Over the last quarter of a century there have been seismic changes at Manchester United. The only constant element has been the quality of the manager's league-winning squad and United's run of success, which included winning the Champions League for a second time in 2008. Sir Alex created a purposeful, but welcoming, and much envied culture at the club which has lasted the test of time. Sir Alex saw Manchester United change from a conventional football club to what is now a major business enterprise, and he never failed to move with the times. It was directly due to his vision, energy and ability that he was able to build teams both on and off the pitch. He was a man-manager of phenomenal skill, and increasingly he had to deal with global stars. His relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, for instance, was excellent and David Beckham has described Sir Alex as a father figure.

The Life Coach: Small-Town Lessons on Faith, Family, and Football
In small-town Decatur, Texas, football was life. And Ronnie Gage couldn't wait to become a Decatur Eagle. His football ability was decent, but he knew there wasn't a big demand for 150-pound center and safety, so he focused his career goals on the next best thing-coaching. This provided a way to give back to a sport, and a community, who had given him so much. Nearly forty years later, after countless winning seasons and championships, Coach Gage found himself in a unique situation, coaching an unusual player. When Emmet (Tom) Thompson joined the Austin College football team as a spry fifty-nine year-old kicker, Coach Gage had his doubts. But Thompson's dedication and tenacity spoke for himself on the field, and the two men forged an unshakable friendship built on their three loves-faith, family, and football. In The Life Coach, Coach Gage shares the important life lessons he's learned both on and off the field. Tom Thompson-kicking coach, author, and speaker-lends supporting anecdotes based on his many years in leadership roles. Together, they hope to inspire players and parents, coaches and crowds, to live a life of faith on and off the field, to make the most of every opportunity, and to have fun while doing it.
