About the Author

John Motson is the nation's best-known football commentator. The son of a Methodist minister, he became a junior member of the Match of the Day staff in 1971 and soon became one of its key commentators. Since 1979, he has been the BBC's main TV commentator for major cup finals. He continues to work for Match of the Day and BBC Radio 5 Live. In 2001 he received an OBE for services to sports broadcasting.


Motson has been the finest television football commentator for the best part of 25 years, and perhaps ever -- Rod Liddle * The Times *
Football's grand master of the microphone -- Lee Clayton * Daily Mail *
Motty's sheepskin coat has become a trademark almost as familiar as Kenneth Wolstenholme's "They think it's all over ... it is now" as Geoff Hurst completed his World Cup Final hat-trick in '66 * Harry Harris *
John Motson is the nation's-favourite, statto-mad, sheepskin-wearing voice of football -- Barney Ronay * Guardian *
We'd be lost without Motty's unique insights. * Martin Kelner *
