Football and How to Survive It is an exceptional memoir about the madness of life and football. Pat takes us on a journey to the less glamorous regions of the game. From Tranmere Rovers to Kilmarnock, he plays some of the best football of his life before finding himself, strangely, both a player and Chief Executive of the Scottish First Division Club, Motherwell. This memoir is a real one-off, uncovering the reality of the sport in all its complex, confusing and calamitous glory. Once you’ve read it, you’ll never look at the game in the same way again.
