Running Man

'I woke in the dark to hear someone opening the door. Obviously I thought it was Agger. I turned, but my eyes were half-asleep, and I didn’t see anything in the sudden, bright glare. But something made me realise that it wasn’t Agger. And soon I could see him – Craig Bellamy at the foot of my bed with a golf club in his hands.' John Arne Riise on that night in Portugal with Craig Bellamy, from his autobiography Running Man, extracted here in the Guardian

John Arne also sat down with Mani Djazmi from the BBC World Football Show, reflecting on his footballing travels around Europe. 

Fulham Fan TV were there at the launch of John Arne's book at Golazio London, and also spoke to the man himself about his time at Craven Cottage

World in Motion

'Hart covers Costa Rica et al but relives the entire tournament, which means Gazza, Toto Schillaci, Roger Milla and Argentina’s Claudio Caniggia being pursued by a death squad of Cameroonians in the opening game.' World in Motion was listed in the Scotsman’s best sports books of the year by Alan Pattullo. 

‘Enlightening’ - Kicker Magazine (below) also took a liking to World in Motion



Life in a Jungle

'I found myself at the heart of a new conflict: between Graeme Souness and myself.' An extract from Bruce Grobbelaar's book, Life in a Jungle, appeared in The42.ie, focusing on his early days at Liverpool. 

Caught Beneath the Landslide

'Seen from the Kippax, he was proof that, even in decline, City still valued pure ability. Songs were composed in his honour. As a team player, he was unimaginably disastrous. In his three seasons at Maine Road, Manchester City were relegated twice. The season in between saw them end up fourteenth in the old Second Division, which was then the worst finish in their history – a record that would take 12 months to break.' Tim Rich on Georgi Kinkladze in his new book on Manchester City, Caught Beneath the Landslide, as featured here in The Blizzard
