Roddy Collins is a football man – now in the sixth decade of a career as a player (at 16 clubs), manager (12 clubs) and commentator. And he is a funny man: an unequalled raconteur with a sharp eye for the absurdities of the professional game and spectacular recall. He has made friends wherever he has gone, along with some high-quality enemies. When John Delaney said he could get Roddy a job if he’d just stop criticising him, Roddy replied that he’d ‘rather dig holes in the road’.
With the brilliant Paul Howard, Roddy put it all down on paper for the first time – the adventures, the rows and the craic – in what is not only one of the funniest but also one of the most eye-opening books ever written about professional football.
This event will start at 6:30 SHARP so we can all (especially these presenters) enjoy the Rugby at 8pm
