Description

Details

For four decades Archie Macpherson has been one of Britain's finest football commentators. Instantly recognisable, he's never been short of an opinion or far from controversy. After joining the BBC full-time in 1969, he established himself not only as one of our foremost commentators but also as a cult figure in our national life. In "A Game of Two Halves", Archie Macpherson gives us his unique perspective on his life and career. As well as brilliant anecdotes including his battles with Jock Stein, friendship and a spectacular falling out with Alex Ferguson, interviewing Terry Wogan in LA in a Jacuzzi in an open-top limousine and the Scotland football manager who took delivery of a plain white envelope, Archie Macpherson also tackles tough issues like sectarianism, the sad decline of commercial television and the future of the beautiful game. "A Game of Two Halves" is a candid, entertaining and thought provoking autobiography which brings Archie Macpherson's story and his passion for football to life with all his characteristic insight, humour and honesty.
