Malcolm 'Big Mo' Mc Govan, one of Scotland's greatest players and one of the most successful managers in English Premier League history, talks about the game he loves and the one thing, above all else, that leads to greatness in football: Total and absolute focus on The Ball. This is a book about football - the beautiful game - the only game that truly belongs to the world. To be more specific, this book is about the source of the game. The heart of the game. The only focus that matters. The single, distinguishing feature in the career of every one of the all-time greats, whether they were players, managers, referees, fans or had any other association with the game. This book is about the past, present and future of football. This book is about, The Ball. In this book, 'Big Mo' explains the importance and the philosophy of the ball from a variety of perspectives."In doing this I hope to confirm the importance of the ball to those who already know it. It is also my hope that notable people, those who may have lost sight and lost their connection with the ball, may be able to find this again. My last and perhaps greatest hope is to introduce a new love of football and the beauty of this great game to people who have never understood it, and never seen the point. If one more person can see the game with fresh eyes, and see its true meaning, this book will have achieved every-thing I hoped it would and more."--Provided by publisher.
