'Bobby Moore: The Man in Full' poses more questions than answers

Bobby Moore, England's first and only World Cup-winning captain, was a complex character whose life is dissected in Bobby Moore: The Man in Full.

There is an inherent dichotomy at the heart of Matt Dickinson's new book: "Bobby Moore: The Man in Full." While the inside cover poses the questions, "What of the failed businesses, whispers of bad behaviour, links to the East End underworld and turbulent private life?" the back dust jacket quotes Moore's friend...

Roy Keane's flaws and inner demons laid bare in his fascinating book

A fight with Peter Schmeichel and details of his departure from Manchester United are covered in Roy Keane's second autobiography.

Football can be the cruellest game. A leading theme of Roy Keane's new book is that even the very best players must eventually feel such pain.

That message was explicit in Matt Dickinson's excellent recent biography of Bobby Moore. England's World Cup captain never found equilibrium in a post-football life. Throughout the "Second Half," the indomitable former skipper of Manchester United's golden era forever fights the dying of his light. Management, punditry, even family life; none can replace...

FC Reviews: Looking for Rio

Eric Cantona explores the complex cultural and contextual issues surrounding the 2014 World Cup.

Rating:

Even leaving aside all the debate about its legacy as a World Cup, it's certainly arguable that there has never been a true football party like Brazil 2014. To walk down the Copacabana on any given night during the tournament - - and especially during the group stage -- was to experience what the event is supposed to be about. In the vast communal setting of an open beach, amid perfect conditions, supporters from so many nations -- including those who did not qualify -- celebrated together...

FC Reviews: The Unbeatables

The Unbeatables: A heartwarming tale fit for all the family.

Rating:

Oscar-winning director Juan Jose Campanella's latest creation is 90 minutes packed full of witty football puns and enjoyable animated action that will keep all members of the family smiling.

Yes, the film is primarily aimed at children, and if you're looking for a factual football documentary along the lines of "The Class of '92" you're in the wrong place. However, "The Unbeatables" treads new ground in cinema as it centres on the world of table football. And what's not to like about watching...

Six Stickers

Rating:

The 2014 World Cup has been a salmagundi of unpredictability, with late goals aplenty and Costa Rica. In among the surprises, however, have been some constants from tournaments past. From that familiar feeling of disenchantment that grips supporters of England every four years, to the cries of "got, got, need" that accompany quests to complete the official World Cup sticker album.

Collecting and collating stickers is a football tradition, nay institution, that transcends generations. For...

Coach Zoran and His African Tigers

Zoran Djordjevic took on a daunting challenge when he agreed to help create a South Sudan national football team.

Rating:

South Sudan finally celebrated its independence from the north in July 2011 following almost half a century of the longest civil war in African history that had claimed nearly 2.5 million lives. A new nation had been born, one of hope and reconciliation, and one which sought to put its name on the world map by setting up a national football team.

Directed by Sam Benstead, "Coach Zoran and His African Tigers" follows the remarkable journey of eccentric Serbian coach Zoran Djordjevic as he...
