Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Here, at last, is a definitive account of Cantona's extraordinary life...Auclair writes with an elegance most native sportswriters might envy...A truly great book...' --GQ<br /><br />`An imaginative and groundbreaking book' --Kevin McCarra, Guardian<br /><br />'At once elegant and exhaustive... This book, about an outstanding gifted footballer by an outstandingly accomplished journalist. A tour de force.' --Brian Glanville, World Soccer<br /><br />`A meticulously detailed examination of a fascinating character... an unusual book, one that might just usher in a new age of football biography.`
--Jonathan Wilson, 4-4-2 Magazine

'a fascinating portrait of an exquisitely talented and intelligent but also petulant and arrogant man who illuminated and perhaps changed for ever the British game.' --The Times

'The enigma of ''King Eric'' has never before been dissected with such scientific precision and presented with such humour and understanding… Masterful and absorbing' --Irish Independent

Présentation de l'éditeur

'An artist, in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room. I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970, and the poetry of the young Rimbaud' Eric Cantona

Football, and art. Eric Cantona - legend, maverick, troubled artist or just plain trouble - never saw a need to make a distinction between the two. For all the heat and noise surrounding his infamous Crystal Palace 'kung-fu kick', it is for the sheer exuberant beauty of his play that Eric Cantona is chiefly remembered by English football fans. At Leeds United he transformed the team into title contenders, but became a true talisman at Manchester United, where to this day fans sing of 'King Eric'. And yet the effortless style of Cantona's play could not hide a darker side to his temperament. In his own words, 'I play with passion and fire. I have to accept that sometimes, this fire does harm.'

Leading French football journlist Philippe Auclair has interviewed over 200 key protagonists in Cantona's career, searching for the man behind the myth. Marrying a deep knowledge of Cantona's impact on the pitch with soulful, pin-sharp insight into the heart and inner thoughts of this most complex of characters, this is nothing less than the definitive biography of a one-time rebel of the French game, who rose to be the King of Old Trafford.

'I'd give all the champagne I've ever drunk to be playing alongside Cantona in a big European match at Old Trafford' George Best

Excellente bigraphie de King Eric qui pour moi m a permis de decouvrir son parcours et son sentiment sur les differentes etapes de ce joueur adule en angleterre mais relativement sous estime en france au vu de ce qu il a accompli.

Bonne lecture!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 But Eric Cantona was one of most controversial characters to play in Premier League and at his hey day fantastic to watch when n 27 octobre 2015
Par Niall Byrne - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I think this is a very well written book about an extraordinary character. I did not grow up a Man U fan, actually Spurs.
But Eric Cantona was one of most controversial characters to play in Premier League and at his hey day fantastic to watch when not embroiled
in off field antics.
I wanted to get to know more about him and his pysche.
What is revealing is how he was (mis)treated by French and Marseilles fans so you can see how he had the proverbial chip on his shoulder
even before joining Leeds/Man U.
A gifted but slightly flawed individual, this is a highly interesting read on his upbringing in France and how his career blossomed and faltered
and that is before even getting into his Premier League exploits.
The book does get into maybe too many details about his career in France
but it also gives good insight into how his mind works so will set you up for how he came about entering the Premier League and his thought process and infamously violent side. Overall a fascinating read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cantona { black or white} 9 avril 2012
Par Sean P. Hogan - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
CANTONA,When you read this book you will discover what makes ERIC the star that he was, and the man that he was. Once you treated him with respect and showed that he was wanted Cantona would do anything for you.In Cantona world every thing was black or white, if you kicked him,he would kick you back.When ERIC got suspended by they French football authority he got 2 matches,he though this was on fair just because of who he was, as every one else who done the same thing had got only one match,so he went up to the 3 officals and shouted into their faces one by one, IDIOT,he then got 4 matches that was ERIC, Strange Man, Fantastic footballer.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not the usual ghost written nonsense - quality in depth review. 28 mai 2010
Par P. Dixon - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Okay, I'm a big Cantona fan - there I said it. Genius, yes. Flawed, yes.

To the book.... I own quite a few autobiographies. Most are truly atrocious, offering very little insight to the person themselves. This book is difference in many ways.

It's not written with the involvement or authorization of Cantona at all. That I think helps more than hinders as it means we spend a lot of time exploring the life story of Eric - it certainly doesn't focus on the "glory years" of Eric's football in England, which we don't get to until 2/3rd of the way into the book.

And that's perhaps the downside for some (but not me). I was interested to learn about his early life, his family, his time in French football - all things I knew nothing about. Others looking for 400 pages of Eric's career at Manchester United will feel short changed.

The one thing against a 5 star is the author's tendency to dwell just too much on the psuedo-intellectual side of things.....but then he too is French!

Enjoyable read with some interesting character analysis, although there isn't really an explanation of why he's like that. Gives some good inside information on some of the key episodes in his career with a rich analysis afterwards. Really needs to have links to his goals on youtube embedded in the text, because descriptions are great and afterwards you want to see the goals or moves!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 good book and well written 23 juin 2016

good book and well written. author talks up football as an art, which in my opinion, is always an interesting concept.
keep the internet close by while reading to google the goals described.
