    books on Ireland circa 86-02

    Lads what books would you recommend on the irish team and/or players from the Jack and Mick eras? Paul McGraths and Cascarino's are two that immediately spring to mind. Doesn't have to be biography, anything really with well told anecdotes rather than just a simple football history.

    Cheers.

    Red Mist - a fans book on the World Cup was good but I also liked the fans books from Euro88 (class!) and Italia90 "we were there". Then the Jack Charlton WC Diaries were great - and the 1990 one my favourite.

    Andys Game isn't bad either.

    It documents a particularly novel method of relieving pressure on a crushed and infected injury to the toenail on one's big toe while at an international football tournament where you're wary of taking any medication whatsoever lest the drug testers find something therein they don't like.

    Said tale involves cigarette lighters, sewing needles and all colours of the rainbow puss. lovely.
