United We Fall: Boardroom Truths About the Beautiful Game

From the book cover: "United We Fall" is the unique story of life inside football, told from behind the scenes of one of Britain's most legendary clubs - Leeds United. It is also the true story of the childhood fan who became chairman of his Premiership team. Peter Ridsdale, one of the game's most controversial and colorful figures, oversaw the most dramatic and talked-about period in Leeds United's history. In this compelling account, he writes about how the dream spectacularly unraveled when the club went into financial meltdown.It is a fall from grace which speaks volumes for the politicking, pressures, successes and failures within the professional game today. This book is like reading the confidential files of a Premiership football chairman, detailing the characters, the prima donnas, the fall-outs, the outrageous transfer demands, and the secret deals. Then there is the Leeds United trial, a near-death plane crash, and the fatal riots from Galatasaray - and the tale of how one chairman fought to keep a club together throughout it all.
