First Person View - Book of the Month – Introduction and Foreward - Cantona: The Rebel Who Would Be King by Philippe Auclair

    February’s Book of the Month has been selected and commenced; I can already tell it’s going to be a great read.

    Mr. Auclair has a beautiful way with words, having heard him speak I cannot help but slip into the proper measure and cadence; I even find myself occasionally softening the pronunciation in my head as I read along - not out loud of course, that would be ridiculous; it’s fantastic, if distracting.

    Three years in the making, some two hundred interviews conducted, and the result is the definitive work on one of the greatest – in every sense of the word – players to ever grace the pitch.

    Man or Superman? Genius or Devil? There is such a fine line between the two hemispheres of the human spirit.

    There could not have been a better biographer for one of the deepest men to take the field as Philippe not only asks the difficult questions, oft overlooked by the more mundane and superficial researchers, but seeks to answer them.

    A Frenchman exiled in England; Un Marseillais; a footballing genius; a fascinating player who helped usher in the modern era of celebrity football as entertainment… Ladies and Gentlemen… Eric Cantona
