    As an ambitious junior coach and fan of football I found this book to be of great benefit and interest. I regularly refer to several of the chapters in preparation of my training sessions and have recommended this book to many of my coaching colleagues.

    What a great read, great insight into the mind of a once great player who's career as a player came to a tragic end after melting his face. His loss as a player was a gain to football management. Read about how he almost ended up at Spurs before taking the job at Trafford after Lord Moyes stepped down. Read how his tactical nouse guided the Dutch national team to several goalless draws and several periods of extra time and penalties during the 2014 World Cup. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on "hoof ball to Felaini", "Make the captain mark the ref" and "having more followers on Facebook makes us better".This book should be at number 1 in the book charts.Buy a copy now and get it up the charts from 10th place.

    Having already proved to the world his tactical genius by substituting a goalkeeper in a penalty shootout, this must be the definitive work on how to build a career as a respected football coach and end up making excuses for repeated failure at the world's biggest club. Despite spunking the entire contents of the Glazers' Cayman Islands vacation and piss up fund on players nobody else wanted he managed to send Manchester United spiralling into an even worse position than his predecessor David "We have to aspire to the level of Manchester City" Moyes. On the way his side was comprehensively thrashed in the minnows round of a cup competition he didn't really want to win anyway by a lower league team whose total cost amounts to less than one week's wages of the inarticulate and incoherent salad dodger and serial referee botherer Wayne 'Help The Aged' Rooney. Rumour has it that Rooney may leave Trafford to concentrate on his alternative career as a James Corden looky-likey. Regrettably this book does not clarify exactly why van Gaal looks like a giant tortoise with a fully extended neck and a ginger wig. I look forward to the sequel when van Gaal may explain exactly what this 'philoshofee' he's always banging on about actually is. At the moment it seems it consists of keeping his wife away from Rooney and his daughter away from Ryan Giggs. Recommended.

    What a read, the book commenced a little slow but surfaced with all the velocity of a swamp turtle, the way LVG and his philosophy has worked over the years and his continued application into his new role is a joy to behold.I am amazed by the contributions by such esteemed characters in the world of football and hope that these principles are conveyed to his assistant in Trafford to enable him and his Sister In Law to develop their great working relationship
