Neil Lennon: Man and Bhoy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Neil Lennon: Man and Bhoy free pdf Captain of Celtic and midfield enforcer for Northern Ireland, Neil Lennon is one of the most controversial figures in British football. His story, fully updated for the Celtic 2006/7 season in this paperback edition, is an extraordinary tale of religious bigotry, life-threatening career injury and tumultuous football success at club level. The first Northern Irish Roman Catholic to play for Celtic and to be chosen to captain his country, Lennon was sensationally forced to quit the captaincy even before he took the field following death threats by Loyalist paramilitaries. In Northern Ireland, the words 'Neil Lennon RIP' were painted on a wall near his family home, while in Scotland, he has been the target of vicious verbal and physical assault by fans of Old Firm rivals Rangers - including being mugged on the street and hung in effigy. Now he will give his side of these stories, revealing in full the terrible consequences of the religious hatred that has tainted his career. Lennon will write of his Leicester years under Martin O'Neill, and how the Midlands club defied bigger rivals by maintaining their Premiership League status and winning two League Cups. He will also tell the inside story of Celtic under O'Neill- how his GBP5 million transfer to Parkhead nearly didn't happen- his wrongful arrest on a club night out- lifting the domestic treble in a glorious first season with Celtic, and the continued revival of the club to the point where they reached the UEFA Cup Final (narrowly losing out to a Jose Mourinho-inspired Porto)- and his relationship with current boss Gordon Strachan. As he approaches the twilight of his playing career, Lennon has decided the time is right to reveal all about his life on the field - including his horrific spinal injury and his less than happy apprenticeships at Motherwell and Manchester City - as well as his hitherto closely guarded private life, including his battle with depression. It's a book that will shock football to its core.
