The 40th anniversary edition of the classic inside account of a season at a professional football club"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 HornbyThe 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."It remains both greatly admired and unmatched." - Richard Williams, The Guardian"The best and most authentic memoir by a professional footballer" - Brian Glanville"Exceptional. It became the standard by which similar books were judged, and was exceeded in acclaim only with the publication of Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby more than a decade later." - The Times

Övrig information

Eamon Dunphy was a professional footballer in the 1960s and early 1970s, with Manchester United and then mainly Millwall, also winning 23 caps for Ireland. He subsequently wrote columns on both football and current events, presented on radio for several stations including Today FM, Newstalk and RTE Radio 1, and regularly appeared as a football analyst on Raidio Teilifis Eireann (RTE). He has also written a biography of Matt Busby and ghost-wrote the autobiography of Roy Keane. He lives in Dublin, and describes himself as having been "a good player, not a great player".
