9781785310454: Luggy: The Autobiography of Paul Sturrock
Revue de presse :

"Excellent!" --Plymouth Argyle Supporters on the Internet (PASOTI) website

"Ten sports books from 2015 to stuff your Christmas stocking with! Our festive picks for the sports fan: The much-needed follow up to Forward Thinking, which was published way back in 1989. Luggy's career has taken a few more twists and turns since then. The focus here is on his managerial career down south. Some engaging stories, including when Sturrock has his dress sense queried by a Southampton director during a short stint there as manager." --The Scotsman

"Tells the story of Sturrock's varied career to date, including low points as well as the highs; the discovery Sturrock had Parkinson's disease led him to reflect on his life and gave him the inspiration for this book. Sturrock gives his views on all the chairmen he was worked for and pulls no punches. He tells us why he believes Sir Alex Ferguson is the greatest manager ever, and how Jim McLean could have been. It was a huge blow for Sturrock that he didn't get the Dundee United manager's job after McLean. This is an inspirational book, not least because it demonstrates how someone can confront and work through a major illness with incredible positivity." --Programme Monthly

"Dundee United legend tells all!" --Daily Record

"There is a tremendous market for books about Scottish football. I'm enjoying Paul Sturrock's autobiography, written with Bill Richards. Luggy was absolutely charming to me when I was a young reporter. What a player he was! Paul has a great football/tactical brain which is still outmanoeuvring Parkinson's disease." --David Tanner, Sky Sports

"Paul Sturrock looks back on his exceptional career as footballer and manager and his future after being diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Will undoubtably arouse great interest." --Scottish Football Historical Archive

"No-one should ever make the mistake of playing Sturrock for a fool. In his new autobiography Luggy, the follow-up to 1989's Forward Thinking, he chronicles an upbringing in Pitlochry that sounds chaotic. He needed to be independent when his mother left home for the north of England, taking his sister with her. A 15 year-old Sturrock combined trying to forge a career at United under Jim McLean while also looking after George, his father. 'I went to Dundee United, he went to rack and ruin,' he explains. 'He wasn't paying the bills. I paid the bills, did all the cleaning from top to bottom in the bed and breakfast. I did that when I was 15 - I basically ran a bed and breakfast place myself, in Pitlochry. When I came back from United after three or four months, he had not paid any of the bills. There was no light in the house, he was cutting up furniture for the fire so he could cook something. That is how bad he got.'" --The Scotsman

"Football fans flocked to a city bookstore to get their Luggy autobiographies signed by the man himself. Eager readers queued outside of Waterstones in Drake Circus to meet with former Argyle manager Paul Sturrock and get their copies of his autobiography signed yesterday. Sturrock, who led Plymouth Argyle from bottom place in the basement division to the Championship within four seasons in his first spell at Home Park, has become a household name amongst many football fans." --Plymouth Herald

"His abrasive style has not been to everyone's taste - a stormy relationship with Southampton the prime example - but he has won promotion five times. He charts his ups and downs, and his battle to contain a disabling medical condition." --Backpass

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Paul Sturrock is widely admired as a manager, having turned around football clubs' fortunes both in England and his native Scotland. As a player he represented his beloved Dundee United and Scotland, and later managed the Tangerines after leading St Johnstone into the SPL. Moving south, he led Plymouth Argyle from bottom place in the basement division to the Championship within four seasons. Sturrock's uncompromising managerial style didn't fit with Southampton's players or owners; however Saints' loss was Sheffield Wednesday's gain, and promotion was again won to the Championship against all odds. Having stabilised Swindon Town, he returned to Plymouth for a sad swansong dominated by the club entering administration and Sturrock's own revelation that he was suffering from Parkinson's disease. A return to management with Southend United saw him guide them to a Wembley final, but left the club before getting the chance to lead his team out onto the hallowed turf. Now at the helm of Yeovil Town Paul's warts-and-all autobiography will both touch and inspire fans at all his clubs, and supporters of the beautiful game everywhere.
