Dear England

£22.00

The definitive, behind-the-scenes account of Gareth Southgate’s time as England manager. It’s taken for granted that England are now one of the favourites at major football tournaments but prior to Gareth Southgate taking the job as manager, this wasn’t the case. ‘Golden Generations’ came and went, with club rivalries and big egos ensuring that England camps had a fractured, toxic atmosphere where performances on the pitch paled in comparison to their club successes. So, how did we get here? This title delves in Southgate’s turbulent journey to being appointed England manager, emerging as a waistcoated cult figure, becoming the country’s most successful manager since Sir Alf Ramsey and how he forged a new kind of patriotism for the 2020s.
