Book review: A Man Walks Onto A Pitch

A Man Walks Onto A Pitch sees Harry Redknapp pick the greatest starting 11, in his opinion, from each decade in English football from the 1950s onwards. As well as picking the team, Redknapp also shares stories concerning those he picks and some general thoughts about football.

Redknapp justifies all picks that he makes and lots of them are quite clear choices. I only have memories of those from the Premiership era playing and would agree with the vast majority of choices, although not including Eric Cantona was perhaps the biggest surprise considering the impact he made and how he became such an important part of Manchester United.

The stories Redknapp shares are entertaining, although I had heard a fair few before, sometimes attributed to other people. The book was an interesting look through the decades and who Redknapp considered the best players. I recommend the book to all fans of football.

Rating (out of 5): ****
